I just heard on television that the village of Big Creek (located in Calhoun County, Mississippi) will hold its annual Redneck Christmas Parade tonight. That’s only about a 40 mile drive for me – I may just have to check it out.
All are welcome to participate. “If you can pull it, push it, drive it or drag it, you are welcome to ride,” read the public service announcement. Big Creek registered a population of 127 during the 2000 census. Holding its own Christmas parade is an ambitious undertaking, but few thing are impossible for rednecks from Mississippi.
Case in point – note the creative computer chair below. Do you really need a plush leather number which will set you back a thousand dollars. Someone you know probably has an old John sitting it out back. Why not put it to good use. I have one sitting outside a rental unit. I was going to plant it in pansies, but on second thought, I think I will put it on rollers and get someone to push me in the parade tonight.
