    Martha Stewart For Rednecks


    PERSONAL HYGIENE:

    1. While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should
    be done in private using one's OWN truck keys.

    2. Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days.
    However, if you live alone, deodorant is a waste of good
    money.

    3. Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they
    tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the taste of
    finger foods.



    DINING OUT:

    1. When decanting wine, make sure that you tilt the paper cup,
    and pour slowly so as not to "bruise" the fruit of the vine.

    2. If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your
    fingers covering the label.



    ENTERTAINING IN YOUR HOME:

    1. A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared
    by a taxidermist.

    2. Do not allow the dog to eat at the table...no matter how good
    his manners are.



    DATING (Outside the Family):

    1. Always offer to bait your date's hook, especially on the first
    date.

    2. Be aggressive. Let her know you're interested: "I've been
    wanting to go out with you since I read that stuff on the
    bathroom wall two years ago."

    3. Establish with her parents what time she is expected back.
    Some will say 10:00 PM; Others might say "Monday." If the
    latter is the answer, it is the man's responsibility to get her to
    school on time.



    THEATER ETIQUETTE:

    1. Crying babies should be taken to the lobby and picked up
    immediately after the movie has ended.

    2. Refrain from talking to characters on the screen. Tests have
    proven they can't hear you.



    WEDDINGS:

    1. Livestock, usually, is a poor choice for a wedding gift.

    2. Kissing the bride for more than 5 seconds may get you shot.

    3. For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A leisure suit with a
    cummerbund and a clean bowling shirt can create a tacky
    appearance.

    4. Though uncomfortable, say "yes" to socks and shoes for this
    Special occasion.



    DRIVING ETIQUETTE:

    1. Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles; even if the gun is
    loaded, and the deer is in sight.

    2. When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest
    tires always has the right of way.

    3. Never tow another car using panty hose and duct tape.

    4. When sending your wife down the road with a gas can, it is
    impolite to ask her to bring back beer.

    5. Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle, especially when
    driving.

    6. Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession.



    TIPS FOR ALL OCCASIONS:

    1. Never take a beer to a job interview.

    2. Always identify people in your yard before shooting at them.

    3. It's considered tacky to take a cooler to church.

    4. If you have to vacuum the bed, it is time to change the sheets.

    5. Even if you're certain that you are included in the will, it is still
    considered tacky to drive a U-Haul to the funeral home.
