While it may seem odd to drop a possum (wonder if it screams as it descends to the ground?), at least we don't hijack one of the robotic puppets from Disneyland's Hall of Presidents exhibit, redress it so it looks like the host from a long-ago TV music dance show, make sure the generator's running full power, never mind upgrading the speech/sound card, and have it do the countdown.

The possum is not a live one.

This event makes everyone in this small town look like a bunch of hillbillies. A lot of residents are embarrassed. But go along for fear of confrontation. If this was put on the ballot most people would vote no!

1. I never said anything about Southern Hospitality. That's reserved for people who don't insult the culture, boy.

2. You're uneducated. You began a sentence with "LOL" and proceeded to use a lower case letter to begin your actual statement, which is incomplete. "Your" should be "You're," "Redneck" is not suppose to be capitalized, and the next sentence is so inane, I won't bother.

3. I'm entirely Mexican; born in America. Just because I defend a culture, does not mean I am apart of it or content within its boundaries.

4. You're a troll. I dare you to go up to someone in Bremen and criticize their culture. You won't, because you don't have the tact.

I was only speaking in native redneck tounge so you would understand. I would bet that if we met at K&M coffee at 12:00 today and compared resumes you would find I am highly educated. I work for a marketing firm that studies consumer buying habits. I did not realize when posting on a site that spells its name Topix instead of the proper Topics spelling that grammar was an issue. Do not get in a battle of witts with me for I will surly win. Just the fact you brought your nationality into the conversation shows you expect some special treatment for your accomplishments. FYI you can be of any race and be a Redneck. I am board with this conversation I will let you have the last word.

I think he meant bored.

I also find it funny that a Mexican that probably has an accent is concerned about his grammar.

So, no only are you unintelligent, you're a boastful racist.

Sorry I meant to say "not" instead of "no"

Maybe I should check my own grammar before I post.:-)

Petsound,
If she had been racist she would have mentioned lawncare, house cleaning, or drug smuggling in her responses.
