The Trailer Trash Culture Thingy

Lynn from Reflections in D minor has put together the latest quiz to show just how uncivilized we are. Personally, I'm such a gentleman I take the dishes out of the sink before I pee (who recognizes that quote?).

Anyway, the choices are in the extended entry, and my preferences in bold.

1. UPN or Fox?
2. roller derby or WWE?
3. Loretta Lynn or Tammy Wynette?
4. Tony Lama or Durango? (this one has me stumped)
5. fried Spam or fried boloney?
6. Buck Owens or Porter Wagoner?
7. fiddle or banjo?
8. Texas or Tennessee?
9. Ford or Chevy? (pickup of course) -- doesn't matter, Ford sucks
10. extended cab or long bed?
11. Tabasco or Texas Pete's?
12. Saints or Cowboys?
13. baseball cap or cowboy hat?
14. double wide or single wide? -- I grew up in one
15. Wal-mart or K-mart?
16. "Your Cheatin' Heart" or "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry"?
17. Gunsmoke or Bonanza?
18. Johnny Cash or Merle Haggard? (ooooh... tough choice)
19. catfish or buffalo wings?
20. Charlie Daniels Band or ZZ Top? close call though
21. Velvet painting: Elvis or bullfighter? what, no dogs playing poker?
22. Plastic sunflowers or plastic flamingos?
23. Lawn chairs: molded plastic or aluminum frame?
24. John Wayne or Clint Eastwood?

"Tony Lama or Durango?" Those are brands of boots, I think. Personally, mine are Frye.

It's the difference between "lace" irish and "shanty" irish....

my philosophy is why bother, when you're going to be washing the damn dishes one of these days anyway?

"4. Tony Lama or Durango? (this one has me stumped)"

Tony Lama boots are (stereotypically) exotic, multi-stitched, pointed-toed, made on something very similar to a Justin last, so for me very comfortable on the rare occasion I can find my size.

Durango are less pointed, a bit less garish; I think they're muddy-looking, mostly. They're cheaper. I don't think they fit as well.

Tony Lama or Durango? Tony Lama. No question.
