I have been on the air in country radio for close to 25 years with 16 years in Tampa Bay area. In that time I have learn lots of redneck sayings. It is my regular Saturday Night All Request show caller Carol Sue who has taught me some of the best redneck lingo I have ever heard. She is my resident redneck lingo expert on WQYK. Here are some of my favorite Carol Sue sayings.
Carol Sue’s Redneck Lingo

Hep: “HEP! There’s a far!”
Bard: Cousin Jesse bard money from me and I ain’t seent him since.
Nekkid: There he was nekkid as a jaybird.

Speaking of getting Cooter Browned, here’s a crazy video about that – as Carol Sue would say it’s “Nuttier than a port-a-potty at a peanut festival.”
There’s Even A Cooter Brown on Twitter with Redneck Wisdom
You could give her Heaven and Earth – she'd still want a tater patch in Hell.—
