Foxworthy was born and raised in Atlanta. Here's what he admits to on his web site:
•Jeff is one of the world's most respected comedians. He's the largest-selling comedy-recording artist, a multiple Grammy Award nominee, and bestselling author of more than twenty-six books. He's hosted or starred in five TV series and was also a part of one of the most successful comedy tours of all time, The Blue Collar Comedy Tour. And let's not forget he's given rednecks more jokes than they know what to do with...
•Jeff has excelled as a comic, an author, and a TV personality for over 25 years. He has made more people laugh than anyone on earth, but at the heart of it, Jeff Foxworthy is a guy. Born and raised in Atlanta, Jeff worked hard to be a great comedian, worked hard to marry up (and he did), and is still working hard to take care of his daughters. Jeff is just a guy. So don’t be mad that his jokes are better than yours.
•Jeff might be one of the funniest guys on the planet, but he is passionate about the outdoors. He loves to hunt and spend time in the outdoors every spare minute on his Georgia farm. Foxworthy Outdoors puts this obsession for hunting and fishing into motion through webisodes, licensed products, and a good excuse to climb into a tree stand."
I suspect that if the above makes him a "redneck," he's proud of it.
!!!!Sebe!!! You actually took my comment seriously!!!? Course I know who Foxworthy is. He's a Southern humorist that sits on the same political aisle as fellow humorist Dennis Miller. BTW: where is old Den these days? Haven't even seen him on Fox!
Anyway Foxworthy's humor is easy to mimic. I'll show you: You might be a YANKEE if you think Ludowici is pronounced Ludowiki. You might be a YANKEE if you think McLarry's curve has something to do with baseball, probably pitching. You might be a YANKEE if you've lived in Hinesville for more than two summers and still have not learned to keep your preparation H suppositories in the refrigerator.
Easy stuff really. Very amusing to small minds. Strike that last comment. Humor like beauty is in the eye of the beholder. However, Foxworthy walks on water amongst the Nascar crowd. You know about them don't you? There the ones who sit for hours in the hot sun watching a bunch of cars go real fast around one big circle. They won't admit it, but most are just waiting on the crash thats sure to come.
Foxworthy just, IMHO, ain't no Larry David, Jerry Seinfeld, George Carlin, or a Chris Rock.
I'm a Southerner Sebe. I just drink the red Kool Aid.
JM, because of you I am not comfortable writing my own thoughts on this medium.
You once vowed to make timeontarget your special project and eventually I just became tired of the constant vile which you posted about the person known as timeontarget.
I once commented that you were singlehandedly causing me and others to refrain from participating.
You obviously don't consider the content of the blogs which I post.
You are nothing but a flaming liberal who attacks any messenger whose opinion differs from yours.
When Liberals have nothing meaningful to say they simply attack the messenger.
Why don't you take the time to read the content of tot's recent blogs?
You can run and post via an anonymous profile Tot but you cannot hide.
Per other posts of TOTS: Any interested individual that is remotely entertained by this vaudeville act please refer to my post on Tot's Blog titled: FROM AN AMERICAN THINKER (and no it is not Tot writing about himself)

Tot FYI: I was a long distance runner for three decades. I got to the point in my running that I felt so strong that I had no reason to stop. Only darkness and family caused me to return home from the run.
Let's go, monkey man!
"!!!!Sebe!!! You actually took my comment seriously!!!?"
I've found that it's better to assume serious than to assume not around here. Thanks for clearing that up.
"BTW Sebe,...they got deer tongue up North?"
Yes - erythronium albidum (a.k.a. "deer tongue") is native to eastern North America, from southern Quebec and southern Manitoba south to Georgia and Texas.
@Sebe. Good, cause I was just bitch slapping Tot around a little. He probably did not even notice it.
