Hoot N Nanny

This is an old post card I found and it gave me a chuckle.

Can you imagine a group like this coming to serve you in a grocery store or maybe our government ?
It also reminded me of the movie with Burt Reynolds in 1972' s Deliverance.

They were a group of 4 who went on a canoe trip down some rapids and were being stocked by some hill billies. The hill billies already had ill children born either because of in breeding or because of the polluted food they ate or moon shine or from illnesses they had no doctors for.

But one boy captured our groups' fascination because he was able to play the banjo so well and didn't look at all smart or sociable.

The Hillbillies were not all nice as it turned out and when a few of them died, all heck broke loose and our 4 heroes had to run for their lives.
It was an exciting movie. One of many this actor played in.

A reporter asked this hillbilly what he thought about the presidents civil rights bill. He answered: "If he owes it, I reckon he should pay it."


A hillbilly came running into the store and said to his buddy, "Al, somebody just stole your pickup truck." Al said, "Did you see who it was?" The hillbilly replied, "I couldn't tell, but I got the license number!"


A hitchhiker in the hills of Tennessee was picked up by a hillbilly who pulled a gun on him and ordered him to take a bottle of corn moonshine from the glove compartment of the car.

"Drink it," the hillbilly ordered, waving the gun. The hitchhiker took a swallow from the bottle, gasped, gulped, sobbed, blinked, wept, gagged, choked, shuddered, squirmed, and twitched.

"All right," the hillbilly said. "Now you take the gun and force me to take a drink."


The family was disturbed. Grandpa Ezra, aged seventy-five, decided to get married. What worried the relatives was the fact that the bride Ezra selected was a young, healthy twenty-two year old. One of Ezra's sons cornered him and pleaded: "Look, Dad, you must give this more thought. It's very serious. In fact, a thing like this could prove fatal!"

"So what?" answered Ezra, unperturbed. "If she dies, I'll marry again."


A young ventriloquist is touring through the southern United States and stops to entertain at a small bar in Texas. He's going through his usual stupid Redneck jokes, when a big burly guy in the audience stands up and says, "I've heard just about enough of your smart ass hillbilly jokes. We ain't all stupid here in the South."

Flustered, the ventriloquist begins to apologize, when the big guy pipes up, "You stay out of this mister, I'm talking to the smart ass little fella on your knee."

The wind is blowing radiation east from Japan.

The whole thing is just beyond belief and here we are with our own nuclear power plants and our own people are being told the same lies Japan told her people.

When you have energy this powerful that can kill millions, you do not play with it unless you are insane.

People are insane. They have to be all shut down or may as well design a magnifying glass over a city and wait for the sun to come out. Same effect Same result. Our call.

But what a Hoot N Nanny way to go lol

Happy Monday everyone!!!

Oh I know Deliverance, I think everyone does.;))
Very funny jokes, I like to start my morning on a happy note, to take my mind away from the terrible tragedies as they unfold on the other side of the globe...

What a funny old postcard!

Even though I live in Tennessee -- the heart of hillbilly land -- I enjoyed each of your jokes.

George - Do they still have hillbillies there?

Gattina said...

Now they are welcoming people at the border to the States hahaha, when you are in the imigration area at the airport in New York ! They have the same friendly faces !

A Lady's Life said...

Gattina Are they?

We cross many times by car and we never had a problem.
They hardly ever check us and Canada doesn't check much either but we see many cars get ripped apart and dogs walking checking for drugs.
I think if my son crossed alone they would check him cause he is young.
I have no complaints. lol

The man on the far right is my great, great grandfather on my mother's side, George Collins. They were tough ol buzzards with Scottish highland ancestry. He was a bridge burner for the north during the civil war. They burned bridges in the mountains so the south couldn't transport iron ore out of the mountains. Whenever he destroyed a bridge, it is said he went out on the rubble and crowed like a rooster!

A bit of history.

Yup people had to be tough and strong in those days.It wasn't an easy life.
