    I like that there are postbellum terms like redneck and hillbilly.

    Bonnieblue Greyback…I wonder if that is like a bloodyback or lobsterback from the Am. Rev.?

    What would Jesus be? Banjo Hogdriver.

    Now, the kid from Deliverance driving pigs in the typical Messiah regalia is too much. Thanks for making my day.🙂

    Sincerely,
    The Savior’s other brother Yellowhammer

    Was HK Edgerton really born on May 17th as “Dixie Outfitter?”
    Glory be!, hallelujah!!!

    Well, I see I’m Mississippi Yellowhammer . . . better I guess than Yellowbelly!🙂

    Hey, I’m not prejudice, some of my best friends are Confederates . . . .

    Mississippi Raider here.

    But you can call me Grierson!

      Wow! That is GOOD!

    Looks like I’m Bayou Moonshine…which sounds like it would have been the perfect flip side of Rusty and Doug Kershaw’s country single “Louisiana Man”…

      Looks like you got the coolest name so far by luck of the birthdate draw. I’m jealous. Then again, we should all count our blessings that we weren’t born Sept 9. Hard to be proud of that one… or even say it after a little moonshine.

        Grey Goobergrabber…ouch. Now that would be an unfortunate nickname! April 3 would be a bad one, too—Rebellious Haversack. Very odd.

    My wife would be Gray Sharpshooter, and I believe that’s ageist!😉

    Jeff Davis – Southern Haversack
    Varina Davis – Dixie Bowlegger
    Robert E. Lee – Stonewall Fury
    Mary Custis Lee – Redneck Soldier

    This is actually kind of entertaining…

      I was intrigued to see that “Barefoot Toothpicker” is an acceptable form of address. I wouldn’t have thought that, but the flag says so, so it must be true.
