    You don't think Foxworthy is humorous, or is it only funny when he denigrates rednecks?

    There's no way Foxworthy came up with those.

    Is it intended to be humorous? I guess I became a bit too old for this stuff when I was about ten years old.

    My time is spent enjoying many things we have to offer here in the USA,, like actual training facilities for shooting,, I do love the smell of gun powder, and well trained instructors... I had never had much use for a handgun, always shot long guns,, now I have something to do inside when the weather isn't great for outside shooting.. Yes we have a great deal of fun here.

    No, like most academics I am an atheist. I'm not sure what you expect "moderate muslims" to say, but I doubt you will be hearing of them on Fox News.

    It seems that most academics are herd animals. Jeff Foxworthy has made a living of self deprecating humor, and most academics might do well to follow his example in not taking themselves too seriously.

    Academics are also overwhelmingly Liberal/Democrat. Tax and spend, Obamacare, legalization, etc.

    I wasn't so sure, due to the style, which Snopes acknowledges resembles Foxworthy's.

    I would accept a disclaimer by Foxworthy which snopes doesn't provide.
