The Turtle Man

Oh, Kentucky. I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this video clip of Ernie "I try not to smile, 'cause I got my teeth knocked out by a chainsaw" Brown, Jr. AKA Turtle Man.

Here's a clip of him in action, in a murky pond infested with snapping turtles. Link [embedded Youtube clip]

This guy looks like a hoot n' a holler. All I kept thinking was that I wanted to spend a day following him around and then try to be his friend. Quarter Confederate, quarter Yankee, half American Indian..hopefully that means he doesn't give a damn who you are so long as you aren't a snapping turtle!

On the whole, southerners are kind, polite, accepting people. Living in Georgia, I never saw racism as bad as when I visited Illinois.

Southerners get a bad rap on lots of counts, and I for one am ready to see the stereotype change. So people from the south are more likely to hunt, fish, and involve themselves in any event that allows them to go drinking in nature. Isn't that what this country was founded on? Where would we be, in a historic sense, without the outdoorsmen -- the seasoned frontiersmen who settled 99% of America with nothing more than leather pents and a gun?
