So lately in my college English course (in high school), i have been tasked with writing an essay of definition. What i am defining: Rednecks (sweet, huh?)

In my search to define the term "Redneck", i came upon a site where this guy claims to be searching for "Redneck Nirvana":

http://www.dba-oracle.com/redneck.htm

No, this guy is not harryconway, but in the fourth picture down, the guy is shown dressed up in civil war clothing to re-enact a famous battle. Next to him, he names a Mike Ault(?) and... Harry Conway??

Is this him? Has a drummer on this forum been a Redneck playing war in his backyard? Harry Conway doesn't seem to be a common name...

You Decide.

BTW i think this website is fake. :)

If his name was Bloomfield Axolotl Verdigris then it would be a fairly safe assumption.

But a Google search for "Harry Conway" finds over 12,000 entries. I wonder how many people have suffered for the sins of their namesakes?

..and the gentleman we have for company on this forum who goes by that moniker is one fine and classy gent who, even if he was a redneck would be forgiven for being one.

I love & appreciate all your useless information Pol. We make way too much of knowledge and not enough about wisdom.

Yer are a wizened Sheila, and thanks for being around.

Back to Mr. Harry Conway, Esquire.

Make sure your definition includes, The Redneck Wars, and it has to do with coal miner unions back in the 1920 and 1930's. The Rednecks were those that wore red bandanas around their necks to show that they were pro union, and has nothing to do with the over used defintion of a sunburned sod buster. Being the grandson of a coal miner from West Virginia I cringe at the mis-used Redneck to mean some southern hick. Get back to me if you need any other help.

It's okay, Bloomfi ... Harry *nudge wink* your secret's safe with us. There's only one way to fight a war, and it ain't civil!

I wholeheartedly second that sentiment.

The internet had made even obscure names common.

Growing up, I never knew anyone who had my exact name, only ever encountered a few people with my first name.

But enter my name in google, and there are hundreds of people with my exact name.
Even when my wife and I got married, we discovered we were not the only couple with the same first and last name combination getting married at the time.

Hey, GD, me and my boys found a civil war bullet in the Shenendoah river last summer in Harper's Ferry. Now theres a redneck town.

LOL!! Funniest thing I've ever seen, right there! BWAAA!!!!
Cheers Mike, do you guys get the original UK BBC Top Gear program in the states? A very stupid but brilliantly conceived program. It's usually not very positive towards US cars, so I can see why the networks wouldn't be too keen to piss off their sponsors. Anyhow, sorry for the mild hijack, but it did fit the thread theme, and has sparked another thread in the Off Topic lounge right now!

Yeah i actually did get that in there, but when i researched it i called it Battle of Blair Mountain. It had a few names, and that one sounded the best.
