taking state stereotypes to the extreme...

I was having a laugh watching Rukia and Levi spar off in chat the other night...who is the most hillbilly/hick chatter...

To note, Levi is from Tennessee originally (living in Georgia currently) and Rukia lives in the deep south of Louisiana.  So you take whatever generalizations and stereotypes available for those states, take them far to left field and the two have enough ammo against each other fr multiple battles.  All in good fun of course! Apparently Rukia has pet alligators in her backyard and levy likes to play a banjo on his hilltop while eating opossum...or at least he use to...It is just funny because of course none of it is true...but they can go at each other with random state stereotypes for a good 30 minutes if allowed.  Anything gator related has to do with Rukia, either she wrestled them in the bayous or ate it for dinner the other night. Although she does not like that association, we can now blame Levi for burning the two together in our minds...or Nate, whichever you prefer.

Hillbilly Levi I think also likes to chew on wheat, though I am not sure if that has been outrightly stated. I think on the silly Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney, though that I guess it actually in the bayou, I still think of him in a little old rocking chair strumming his banjo. What hill does he live on?  Oh that one over yonder...What was for dinner?  Chili with roadkill as the meat. Overalls?  Still in style.  ...While none of that is true of Levi, Rukia likes to throw it around and of course it is good for a few laughs.  What is the use of silly stereotypes if you cannot have fun with them?  Of course if thrown some sort of generalization, you have to do the same in turn.

...While this has been mentioned before, I just felt inspired to write about them two since they were going on about it again...you two are always a laugh to read!

It's also fun to chime in and add some jabs of my own. :D I think I've also had to fend off stereotypes of what out-of-towners think of Texas and its people. Always fun. Hats n' big buckles? You bet! Careful what you say though because apparently everyone here has a gun. :P
