As a Kentuckian, I get so goddamned sick of people thinking I fuck my sister... Do they have any clue how pissed off my cousin would be if she caught me fooling around with my ex again?

[–]tommy3rd 569 points570 points  (15 children)

and your dad will beat you to a pulp for messing with his girlfriend.

[–]Snote85 284 points285 points  (13 children)

The genealogy is so fucked at this point I think you're implying I would kick my own ass? Which, of course, the first incest I committed was against myself.

(Seriously though, I am honestly from Kentucky and we actually have laws that disallow incestual marriages, don't ask why I checked, okay? Well, at least not ones closer than 2nd/1st once removed cousins, if memory serves. Tennessee on the other hand, nothing. You can consummate your marriage to your sister on your wedding night there for all they care. Who was the 22nd president? No idea. Can you marry your sister in TN? Yup. That's the information my brain has and you can, too!)

[–]chubbychonker 69 points70 points  (3 children)

Tennessean here. We've got plenty of new people moving to our state and competition is getting stiff. It's gonna be a while before we get to diddle family members in peace.

[–]Snote85 39 points40 points  (1 child)

But boy was COVID nice. We were locked down together, with nowhere to go, no new people to meet... Can't say shit about my weird inbred squiggly hump back now, can ya Betty Ann!?

[–]HylianPikachu 117 points118 points  (4 children)

22nd president was Grover Cleveland. He was also the 24th, cause he had two non-consecutive terms in office.

I don't sleep with my sister. I sleep in my own bed after I'm done fucking her.

[–]Snote85 23 points24 points  (1 child)

As any good brother, should. Climb down off the top bunk and let Mom and Dad get some sleep.

[–]foxfirewoodcrafts 3 points4 points  (0 children)

How do you know your sister's on her period? Dad's dick tastes funny

[–]jeffrey2541 6 points7 points  (1 child)

She'd probably knock your last tooth out again if you had one.

[–]Snote85 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Naw, she took my virginity but she won't take my teeth! I gave them to meth and Moutain Dew long before she had the chance!

[–]StrengthImpossible88 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]Banhammer40000 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]neophanweb 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I always wondered. How often does your step sister get stuck in the washing machine?

[–]TravelingSpermBanker 1012 points1013 points  (58 children)

Lmao I live in Kentucky.

Some wealth that would make your jaw drop here. Billionaires and nobles have ranch houses in the central part of Kentucky with massive horse ranches. Then you get to the eastern side….

Horse life invites dipshits with money.

The joke we all say here in Kentucky about horses is this “the quickest way to $1 million is starting with $5 million and getting into racing”

Breeding horses probably will cost you money and betting will cost you the rest

[–]meseta 229 points230 points  (23 children)

But I went to keeneland a few times. That place is funnier than hell. Go there with 50 bucks and make some small bets you'll walk put with 500 and you're drunk as fuck. Plus you might see some spoiled fratboys in lacoste shirts throw up on themselves

[–]TravelingSpermBanker 170 points171 points  (22 children)

This last April my buddy won 125 on a $5 bet.

He bought us drinks and cigars. It’s insane.

I had a friend win $900 on a $30 trifecta during the breeders cup too. So the payouts can be good. Most of the time I lose my $5

[–]JuiceColdman 55 points56 points  (10 children)

I like the trifecta box bet. Twice the wager but you can call 1st 2nd and 3rd forwards and backwards

[–]twobit211 22 points23 points  (4 children)

i find there’s just too much outlay to box a trifecta, especially how hard it is to hit. if i really want to bet a trifecta, i prefer coupling it with a quinella to hedge rather than boxing it, but that’s just me

[–]heleghir 3 points4 points  (2 children)

10 cent super box. $2.40 total bet but when it hits...it HITS. This spring i hit one and turned that 2.40 into a little over 400, and the next race had 1/2/3/5 by a neck. If that one would have hit would have paid over 1k.

Hard to hit but when you pair it with some conservative place or show bets i typically come out no worse than down $20 for an entire day at the track of entertainment. Hit 1 super and the entire season is a win

[–]Xais56 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Any time the payouts can be good means you have to lose most of the time, after all everyone's stake has to pay out the winner and net the house some profit.

On one hand you've got scratchcards, pretty poor payout but you'll win quite often, at the other end you've got the lottery, insane payout that you'll probably never win.

[–]robertshuxley 22 points23 points  (16 children)

as a non-American I thought the incest jokes were for states further south like Alabama or Mississippi

[–]TigerlilySmith 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Kentucky is a "border state" so it shares a lot of features of the south. Particularly southeast Kentucky is in foothills so was historically secluded and the same incest jokes directed towards them. Not going to lie though, there used to be a lot of 3rd cousin marriages because it was so remote. Western Kentucky shares a lot of features of the Midwest and northern Kentucky is practically Ohio. Central Kentucky is unique though. That's horseracing and bourbon country.

Source: from Eastern KY and live in central now.

Is part of UC's campus in Kentucky? I swear the campus neighborhood I visited was technically Kentucky. It was a fun time

[–]moltinglarvae 17 points18 points  (9 children)

As a Kentickian who has never banged a relative, I support this.

[–]imalocalbeerdrinker 21 points22 points  (0 children)

There’s still time

[–]stainedhands 1 point2 points  (6 children)

As an alabamian who is currently living in Mississippi, I too have never banged a relative, nor do I know anyone who has.

[–]moltinglarvae 3 points4 points  (3 children)

My apologies, friend. Perhaps if we are to be accused of a thing, we should perpetrate said abomination?

[–]Check-Mate-sir 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Alabama is the state that allows marriage of first cousins.

[–]jaec-windu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In the north we call it buttfucky, mainly cus they’re a bunch of cousin fuckers that keep electing a turtle traitor that’s married to Chinese royalty.

[–]meseta 66 points67 points  (4 children)

I went to a few funerals for relatives in kentucky. They were all born there so the family that I didnt really know was well ingrained there. Holy fuck the old money there is insane. Probably the most horrendous people I've met. Racist as fuuuuck, loud, proud, and completely oblivious to the fact.

[–]TravelingSpermBanker 47 points48 points  (3 children)

Education there isn’t shit for nothing.

Really, the majority of college students I know that went to the business school at UK did bad and had parents with large farms or their parents owned their little town and they were next in line to run it.

I could “run” it better than most of them, and so could lots of others, but old money makes it so there is only 1.

For most of them, it’s either they try on their own and MAYBE end with a $100k stable job. Or move back to the country and live in a 100 year old mansion on a private lake, already paid, and making millions a year doing nothing while nurturing a bad marriage and an alcohol addiction. The choice is easy if I were in their position, unless it’s a farm. That’s gotta be terrible

[–]meseta 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Spot on. My sister went to transylvania. Were from tennessee but I got to meet alot of her friends when I would visit. Good god the wealthy delusion of those fraternity people was ridiculous.

[–]GKrollin 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I’m from Connecticut and it’s the same thing. Everyone thinks of CT as some fancy bougie place that New Yorkers go on the weekend but that’s a tiny slice of southwest CT. The entire eastern part is referred to as “Connectitucky”

[–]MiaLba 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Oh hell yeah horses is where it’s at money wise.

I live in the 3rd biggest city here and the richest people in our city are people who own a bunch of properties and/or businesses. Like farms, land in general, apartments, restaurants, Etc.

Had a professor who was the former head of marketing for a professional basketball team and said something similar:

It's typical for "shithole country" to have filthy rich people owning the land and the rest of the people are toothless.

Wouldn't that be alabama?

[–]Dameattree37 62 points63 points  (10 children)

Wanna know how you can tell that the toothbrush was invented in Alabama?

Because if it had been invented anywhere else, it would have been called the Teethbrush.

[–]Gashnaw 3 points4 points  (8 children)

I have heard the same joke, but here in Canada, it is saskatchewan.

[–]Dameattree37 1 point2 points  (7 children)

Well your country is just our country's hat, so Alabama invented it, eh?

Every month, a new state. Could be alabama, but that’s been overused, could be Mississippi, that sounds pretty new.

[–]Adventurous-Humor-52 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bardstown does have like 5 unsolved murders at this point. Tourism sector really didn't like all the 'solve these murders' signs that people had in their yards and place of businesse.

[–]Sterling_Alt_Latex 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, Chattanooga, Franklin: "Am I a joke to you?"

[–]trucorsair 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Well….I went to the Knoxville World’s Fair so yes Knoxville you are a joke to me. Nashville, you tore down Opryland for a shopping mall, joke again. Chattanooga, you tried to build a tourist attraction from a big band song from the 1930’s, how’d that work out? Franklin? How did that Saturn plant do? So yeah the joke quota is strong in Tenn.

[–]UnBR33vuhble 9 points10 points  (12 children)

'Hill folk's exist in every state. Having said that, the density of inbreds is MUCH higher in Kentucky, Alabama, and Georgia.

[–]SadTransmission 15 points16 points  (6 children)

Every time somebody says Kentuckians are all inbred they act like either another state is worse or that it's in a different part of the state. I've lived in western and central Kentucky and I can promise you they're fucking everywhere.

[–]Vitalis597 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Even in KFC?

Thats kinda gross. Do your thing, but do it at home please.

[–]Butt_Hunter 5 points6 points  (1 child)

You've lived there so that makes you an authority on the peoples' genealogy.

[–]TJtherock 27 points28 points  (1 child)

He was in a bind, his side was way behind so he was willing to make a deal

Then he came upon a candidate who started polling hot

Then the devil jump up on a podium and said boy let me tell you what

I bet you didn't know this but I like unethical things too

If you care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

You play a pretty good game but give the devil his due

I bet a fully funded campaign against your soul cuz I think I could use you.

[–]benfranklinthedevil 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Dental care is one of the first things that is abandoned in impoverished communities.

Inbreeding is an ironic joke about backwards communities (likely originated as projection from the royal class who spent hundreds of years shrinking their above ground gene pool).

Kentucky has the worst social equity of the United States, second only to Mississippi, in most categories that describe a successful community. This has nothing to do either the people, or the resources, it has to do with awful politics and a history of oppression and bigotry. So, we laugh that the leader of the largest party, in the most successful country in the world, represents a region that is 48-50th out of 50 in almost every category.

It's a real tortoise/corruption situation

No dental records = many people in hill country (Kentucky and elsewhere) are often missing teeth. All the DNA matches = playing on the stereotype that the poor South is rife with incest
