The state of Tennessee (along with Kentucky, Alabama and Mississippi) is often referred to as “The Armpit of America,” and when I first relocated to the greenest state in the land of the free it took all of three seconds to understand the moniker.
It seems that white trash folks live above the Mason-Dixon Line, where as red necks (who are really proud to boast about being one) generally reside in the South. And to be a proper red neck, you need a truck because they come in handy for attaching larger than life tires, they are used for muddin’ (yes it’s a sport down here) and with a truck, you don’t care if your window falls out or if you need a ladder to climb into the cab.
This proud truck owner apparently needs a ladder to climb up to the driver’s seat with the oversized tires in which he opted to attach to his ride. It makes so much sense for driving around Nashville, right?
Due to the photo quality you can’t quite see the beauty in this truck’s license plate….
On the same Nashville interstate, I found this clever driver who decided glass was too fancy for his rear window. He opted for plastic and duct tape (my favorite), which really classes the vehicle up – don’t you agree?
This lovely SUV owner obviously takes Tennessee trash quite literally.
Of course after seeing my fellow statesmen class up our city, I had to get in on the trashy Tennessee shenanigans. Since my dream car is a Range Rover, I thought I’d just go ahead and own one – all it took was a marker, packing tape and cardboard. A true dream come true – for free!
Just keepin’ it ultra classy with my fellow Tennesseeans (does this mean I’m now a red neck?!)…
