You might be a redneck if you and your rabid dog can watch a cockfight while reaching for another cold Pabst Blue Ribbon without leaving your front porch.
You may have heard of the cockfighting bust in Anderson this week, but an interesting factoid caught my attention at the end of The Anderson Independent’s Article
.…While officers were on the scene, Mr. _____ was also issued three clean-up orders for the junk cars on his land, a rabies citation and a ticket for having a refrigerator on his front porch, said Chip Sturgis, a spokesperson for Anderson County Emergency Services and Public Safety
I understand the illegality of the cockfighting and the rabies citation, but have this question. Why is he being ordered to haul off his junk cars and take the frige off the front porch? This is South Carolina for crying out loud.
Interestingly, today the Senate Judiciary Committee is debating a bill to make cockfighting a felony. Currently, the practice is a misdemeanor with minor fines assumed to be a “cost of doing business”.
I’m being honest, if you visit the news article you’ll see similar comments and a link to this picture. I noticed this after writing my post. I guess we think alike in the electric city.
