New Headers In Rotation

Random Unrelated Image: Hillbilly Vibrator (possibly NSFW)

I have been clamoring for a new blog design for quite some time now, but every time I get right to the point of no return, I back out. I have been with this current design going on two years now, and it is starting to get a little stale. I began working on a custom design, and fired off an email to my good buddy Canucklehead to ask him if he could help me out with a good tagline that would appear in the header.

He asked me why I was changing it, and I told him, and he convinced me that it probably wasn’t a good idea.

But I have to do something, I thought. It just the same ol’, same ol’, day in and day out.

He proceeded to send me a couple of taglines anyway, and I thought of an idea. Why not use the same header image with rotating taglines? I requested a few more taglines from him, and well, he did not disappoint, as I knew he wouldn’t. He has a knack for this kind of shit.

Anyway, if you scroll back up to the top of the page, and hit the refresh button on your browser, you will notice that the tag line changes with each refresh. Pretty fuckin’ cool, eh?

These are the current taglines in rotation:

  • Putting the ‘ill’ in hillbilly.
  • This blog runs on moonshine.
  • Red neck, White lies, Blue collar.
  • Coal mining and moon shining!
  • Making Molehills out of Mountaineers since 1979.
  • West Virginia: One Big Happy Family … Literally!

And of course the classic one that has been up there for a while: If you have ever stopped by my house, you came on purpose, because I live on the way to nowhere.

Now that is a great start, but I need some more. So if any of you are feeling creative today, just leave a little tagline in the comments section, and if I like it, I will put it into rotation, and you will get a link to your blog in my footer. Such as Canucklehead has.

So get to it. Come up with a good HillBilly / Hick / Redneck / West Virginia tagline. Let’s see what ya got.

    Oh, I don’t know. How about?

    NO. IT IS NOT STILL PART OF VIRGINIA!

    or,

    THE MEEK MAY INHERIT THE EARTH, BUT IN WEST VIRGINIA THEY WON’T GET THE MINERAL RIGHTS.

    Maybe this one is too political.

    I like the first one. :)

    Being in the business industry, I speak with a lot of out of state people. Whenever they ask me where I am from I say “West Virginia.” They say, “Oh, so you live in the CommonWealth.” And I am like “No. I live in the state of West Virginia, not Western Virginia.”

    And, believe it or not, I have had people say, “You mean there is a state called West Virginia?” To which I usually reply, “Yes. It’s not the most original name, I know, but I deal with it.”

    I know exactly what you are talking about.

    One time when I was in Las Vegas I was at a UPS store trying to ship some gifts back to WV and the lady that was waiting on me said, “oh you are from West Virginia, I went to the beach there when I was a little girl.” I said, mam you are talking about Virginia. She then said, “oh no, we are talking about the same place.” I said no were are not, West Virginia is a landlocked state.

    I don’t think she ever did believe me.

    The second one I gave you is actually somewhat famous. I think John Paul Getty said it first.

    I have been trying to think of one that revolves around the fact that WV is really not a state. West Virginia was basically created via a Lincoln Executive Order, the state charter was never ratified by the other states, thus the state is unconstitutional.

    I just can’t think of one that makes sense and is short enough.

  • Canucklehead says:

    Gee thanks Bucky – you didn’t have to do that. You know I’ll hit you up with some more shortly – actually, let me try to think of a bonus one now:

    THAT’S HILL-WILLIAM TO YOU FRIEND-O!

    Meh, not my best work, I’ll be back.
    CHEERS!

    The new header things are pretty cool! Wish I had the energy (maybe more like initiative) to do stuff like that…nice job.

    This one is my favorite: West Virginia: One Big Happy Family … Literally!

  • AbelMind says:

    “Fixin to put beer in anything”

    West Virginia

    “Where there aint no soap”
