This was just pointed out to me about the fish hooks on the caps thing:
‘It means you’re a redneck’
‘Kids wear them to let people know they’re ‘country’. I lived in Washington and that’s country. Not central Florida’
And my favorite:
‘I too have heard about some racist symbolism, but no one can ever back it up with factual/ conclusive data. (Although I imagine most that wear it have no idea what “factual” and “conclusive” mean, but they can tell you how to gut a deer.) :) LOL!’
Excuse me, darlin, but I know what factual, conclusive, idiosyncratic, and a lot of other words you probably couldn’t pronounce mean and I have a Bachelor’s Degree and a fish hook.
I got my fish hook when I caught my first large mouth bass and the trend started BEFORE Larry the Cable Guy through BassPro Shops as a Lucky hook.
And why does EVERYTHING associated with country folk or farming, etc. Have to be racist, degrading, and assuming that we’re all stupid? Not only is it wrong, its extremely insulting to the people who feed your fat ass.
Anyone who thinks this cicada invasion is a wonderful thing is wrong. Cicadas are annoying to begin with, but they feed on the roots of hardwood trees and often times crops. They have destroyed crops and will do it once more.
Not to mention this ‘they’ll be here 4 weeks’ shit is UP NORTH. Down south here they will plague us all summer. Yes they redistribute nutrients, but not til after they destroy crops. Especially when there’s 25,000 cicadas per acre. Its gonna kill our crop harvest :/
