Folks often ask me why I've gone to all the trouble of creating this website. Truth is, I'm not sure. Maybe it's because, as a Southerner, I'm a little defensive. After all, it seems an awful lot of people are under the mistaken impression we Southerners are nothing more than a tribe of cousin-marrying, pig-humping, dim-witted savages. Maybe this website will give me a chance to dispel some of these myths. For example, I can tell you right now I'm almost certain my wife is not my cousin. Allow me to also publicly proclaim that my love of pigs extends absolutely no further than the dinner plate. As for being dim-witted, well..., I'm still working on my defense.

If the truth be known, Mark Twain likely provides a pretty reasonable explanation for why this website exists. He said, "There are no grades of vanity, there are only grades of ability in concealing it." I guess I'm poor at concealment.

Robert Penn Warren once said, "Storytelling and copulation are the two chief forms of amusement in the South. They're inexpensive and easy to procure." My Southern manners (and my wife) force me to offer you only one of these two amusements - storytelling. But, like the man said, DumbSoutherner.com is both inexpensive and easy to procure.
