KENTUCKY SOCIAL NOTE

‘Redneck Rave’ Descends Into Throat Slashing, Impalements, and Mass Arrests

The lengthy getdown, advertised as the “biggest country party you’ll ever go to,” boasted a demolition derby, goldfish racing, and a full-scale football game as well as a series of concerts.

What the heck is a "country rapper"?

I need to get my glasses checked. I first thought it said "Redneck Dave." I thought we were hearing about an alter ego or a cousin on bath salts.

Are we having fun yet, HELL yes!

Police found meth, marijuana, and an open bottle of alcohol in the FIRST vehicle they stopped at a traffic checkpoint. One of the people in the car had two active warrants out for their arrest.
“We were like, ‘Well, this doesn’t bode well for the weekend,’” said the Edmonson County Sheriff.
At least one person died at the event last year. Another Redneck Rave is scheduled for October of this year.

From the article it was one heck of a party. The goldfish racing is intriguing, many people enjoy cockroach racing because of the spectacular wrecks. I can't visualize a goldfish wreck, but I would like to.

Motto: "It Isn't Fun And Games UNTIL Someone Pokes Out An Eye!"

- wanderer2575 - That's an angry white guy who screams profanities while banging hubcaps together.

Name withheld, I'm reminded of a Hanna-Barbera cartoon show from the 1960s called "Top Cat". He was an alley cat that banged trash can lids together to summon his gang.

Maybe that's how they got this gathering together.

wanderer that was my first question too!
George Jones, Earl Scruggs, and Merle Haggard are probably turning over in their graves.

"You just might be a redneck if you and your honey went on a first date to the Redneck Rave..."

Impalements are are included with the backstage pass.

Ahh! The state of Mich McConnell and Rand Paul.

Explains everything.

I can't believe no one invited The Donald. These are his people!

A conundrum: how is a "redneck rave" related to a "hillbilly elegy"?

Sounds like Friday night at my place.

Steverino: the state of Rene Boucher, who attacked Paul and beat him up. That explains everything.

But which goldfish won and who was the jockey? I was betting on #6.

I relate this to a carnival hiring "THE THING" to manage the 'Tunnel of Love' ride.
