But over here on the other side o’ the hill in Tennessee, all we gots is tore-nados and turn-ados. Know what the difference is? A ”tore-nado” is one what come thru town an’ tore ever thing up. A “turn-ado” is one that comes thru an’ turns all the trailers upside down!

    Welcome, feller!!!

    I always thought that rednecks came from the north west, hicks from the mid-west and Hillbillys from the south? Welcome to the forum

    Actually all these things have really interesting origins:

    Hick is actually an English nickname for Richard (go figure) , but Hick's in the US were originally the followers and fans of "old Hickory" andrew jackson - who appealed to rural, improverished, and remote mountain people politically.

    Hill-Billies, etc... are Ozark and Appalachia mountain region (mostly Tennessee and West VA). Nobody really knows where the "billy" part of it comes from but some trace it to the Irish and Scottish that settled that area.

    Rednecks originated in the South, specifically southern white poor farmers whose necks were permanently sunburned from working the cotton fields with their heads down. It became very politically charged in the south around 1900 to the point that people proudly called them selves rednecks and wore red handkerchiefs around their neck in solidarity.

    At the end of the day though, they are all just another pejorative way for people to shit on other people less fortunate than themselves so they feel better about their station in life.
