I just knew people couldn't resist. The last group of people who can be publicly bantered around, stereotyped, and made fun of without some kinda lawsuit or public outcry---hillbillies. I guess this is the only class of humans where people think that those stereotypes really hold up. Back when I was in college I got drunk and wrecked my car down in the Appalachians. I woke up the next day in this family's home, my face and gut lashed open. They didn't call the law. The woman made me Golden Seal, Chickweed and Capsicum poultices for a week. I ate venison and ramp (wild garlic-like plant) stew and after a week I was back up on my feet, singin' and playing a home made dulcimer out on the back porch with the rest of the family. They gave me newly hand stitched clothes to wear. When it was time to go, I tried to pay 'em but they wouldn't have it. They said to "pass it on" to my "neighbor". Now, I know they didn't have much, if any money.
They sure were happy.
