this theory, and this is that Larry the Cable guy was never, ever a redneck, nor has he ever touched a cable. Rather, he is a Yale graduate in disguise. Not to give him too much credit, but he graduated at the bottom five percent of his class. After many years of sitting around on his ass, he created a persona that rednecks and other stupid people can identify with. He’s the Alice Cooper/Marilyn Manson of the redneck world.
I recently heard Alice Cooper on the radio. He sounded like a very ordinary guy. He readily conceded that Alice Cooper was nothing more than an act. I recalled that Marilyn Manson once claimed the same thing.
The question that all the above begs is this disingenuous behavior? Yes. These guys aren’t being upfront as to who they are. Then again, they should be commended for figuring out how to make a shitload of money off many really stupid people.
This can all be compared to writing a best seller. Everyone thinks that it’s easy, but only a handful of people seem to be able to pull this off. I guess success is dependent upon both being audience aware and coming up with a workable idea.
I have not yet been able to do either. The get ‘er done deal has been taken. And I don’t feel up to getting on a stage and biting the heads off chickens or chomping down on light bulbs. Hmm, guess I’ll figure something out in another life time. In the meantime, I am just going to keep writing. More about this tomorrow.
