AWA, is this because you're only the second-biggest redneck in your department, or are you two interchangeable, like Pitbull #1 and Pitbull #2?
There's another guy who has like 32 years in the company. We didn't even know each other until 5 years ago, but we're both instructors and teach a lot in the south - south east USA (like Georgia, NC, ect) and Texas. Instructing in a technical world is part instructing, part show (you gotta keep 'em interested), so we all tell a lot of jokes. I tell a lot of down home jokes, and I did even when I was still living and working out of Chicago. And now that I am working out of Louisville, I am sure I have a bit of an accent. Ken is from Georgia and he PLAYS the part well.
We both might use this line when referring to a a necessary but distasteful part of our jobs - updating as built prints.
"Like the coondog said when his hunter made him go out in the freezin' water on a december morning to get a bird - it's not exactly what I want to do, but I better do if I want to keep on eatin'"
Since we both do this, the other instructors have named us (and Ken's older) Redneck#1 and Redneck#2.
