Hillbilly Mom’s Letter
Sometimes it is great to take a break from the crazy world of politics, and just laugh! I found this Hillbilly joke over the weekend going viral on social media, because it is hilarious! So I thought I would share it with you, and ask that you pass it on to a friend who needs a laugh as well.
Hillbilly Moms Letter
Dear Son, I’m writing this slow ’cause I know you can’t read fast.
We don’t live where we did when you left.
Your dad read in the paper that most accidents happen within twenty miles of home, so we moved.
Won’t be able to send you the address as the last Arkansas family that lived here took the numbers with them for their house, so they wouldn’t have to change their address.
This place has a washing machine. The first day I put four shirts in it, pulled the chain and haven’t seen ’em since.
It only rained twice this week, three days the first time and four days the second time.
The coat you wanted me to send to you, Aunt Sue said it would be a little too heavy to send in the mail with them heavy buttons, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.
We got a bill from the funeral home, and it said if we didn’t make the final payment on Grandma’s funeral bill, up she comes.
About your sister, she had a baby this morning. I haven’t found out whether if it is a boy or girls so dont know if you are an Aunt or Uncle???
Your Uncle John fell in the whiskey vat. Some men tried to get him out, but he fought them off playfully, so he drowned.
We cremated him and he burned for three days.
Three of your friends went off the bridge in a pickup.
One was driving and the other two were in the back. The driver got out. He rolled down the window and swam to safety.
The other 2 drowned. They couldn’t get the tailgate down.
Not much more news this time.
Nothing much happened. If you don’t get this letter, please let me know and I will send another one.
And now for all those offended…
Give it up! I was raised half hillbilly! When we cease to be able to laugh at ourselves, we cease to exist. I once heard more hillbilly joke than I had heard in my life, spending a day in a Hollar east of Lexington, KY with an old lady who had in 92 years, never been more than 5 miles from the porch we were sitting on.
So give it up! earn to laugh at yourself, and others. There was a time when everyone could make jokes about everyone, and everyone laughed.
Now there are almost no jokes, because, someone might be offended. 1984 Orwell anyone?
The First Amendment was not made for puppy dogs and daffodils. It was written because when someone else decides what we can say or think, it never turns out right.
So laugh! AT least I didn’t bring HILLary and BILL Clinton into it!
