WHERE THE HEART IS - Redneck Computer Terms


By Alice Hickman


Are you tired of the redneck jokes? Me too!

However, I can't hold out on all you readers any longer. After deliberating about joining the ranks of sub-standard humor, I'll take the plunge and get a little crazy; just because it's Thursday and I pick this day to get stupid.

I am not the author, only the messenger.

HARD DRIVE - Trying to climb a steep, muddy hill with 3 flat tires and pulling a trailer load of fertilizer.

WINDOW - Place in the truck to hang your guns.

FLOPPY - When you run out of Poly grip.

And that is where the heart is!
