Life Imitates A Bad Redneck Joke


White Trash Wednesday

Old joke:

What's the last thing a dumb redneck says before he dies?

"Hey, y'all, watch this!"

Maybe this guy didn't die, but it wasn't for lack of trying:

FORT PAYNE, Ala. -- A Georgia man was hospitalized after jumping from the side of Alabama's DeSoto Falls and plunging 150 feet before hitting the water.

The leap wasn't a suicide attempt since several witnesses reported that prior to the plunge, the man yelled, "Watch this."

Tim Whitehead, superintendent of DeSoto State Park, said 23-year-old Jason Carter of Trion, Georgia, jumped from the east side of the canyon around 3 p.m. Monday. He was airlifted to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee, after rescue personnel spent three hours removing him from the canyon. Carter, who was treated for a back injury, was reported to be in stable condition yesterday.

It's White Trash Wednesday! Take the whole tour:



In Wisconsin, the famous last words are "Honey, hold my beer while I try this."

I knew a guy who died jumping from those falls. (DeSoto Falls is in the county I grew up in.) His leg got trapped in some rocks underwater, and that was it for him. I'm amazed by the number of people who have jumped there through the years.

Am I the only one amused by the fact that this story comes out of Fort Payne?

...and the guy in question has the same last name?

Jim - shhhhh. We don't talk about that side of the family.

This is cool, you have to try it. I guessed 11703, and this game guessed it! See it here -
