Thanks, Jan Fields, for this really intriguing pic. A bit of a challenge, but here we go!
Americans will get it and not be amused.
Europeans will not get it and will STILL not be amused.
OK, so it’s probably a bit lame. I’ll blame Russell for this simply because he’s here this week and because he’s here this week.
An unusually cool Texas night saw the lining of tents along the street corner at the State Fair. One tent caught his eye. He ran to The Hat Tent and plopped down the money for the perfect chapeau. He tried it on and turned to his friend.
“Well, who do I look like, Bob?”
“Larry, The Cable Guy, who else? Come on, we’re late as it is.”
They ran to the side of the outdoor platform. Bob tossed him his new hat. “Knock ’em dead, man!”
The announcer approached the mic. “And now, ladies and gentlemen —- Larry, the Cable Guy!”
Nope. No idea who Larry the Cable Guy is
Larry, The Cable Guy is an American comedian who wears hats that style and is from the Southern most part of the United States. He does what we call “red neck comedy” which is comedy about the working man out in the field from farming to construction, those who don’t hold desk jobs, in other words. The title is his catch-phrase: “Git ‘er done!”
Here you go, Neil… https://youtu.be/DOE9q661Xq4
A Nebraska man, too.
Dear Cuzzin Kent,
You’ve done it. Achieved new heights of low. My hat’s off to ya.
I finished off a different story and almost submitted it, but I decided against it. Saving it for later. Thanks from the heart of my bottom.
perfect ending. didn’t expect it, though. 🙂
Well, good! Something I did caught you off-guard. 😉 Thanks, Plaridel!
Yeah, I’m a slightly lost European!
Hey, thanks for reading anyway, Iain. I don’t normally do the “local stuff” but it’s fun.
See the video I gave Neil 😉
Hilarious! Good selection, Dale!
No, I don’t know Larry the Cable guy either. But sounds like he’s very successful.
He is. He is nationally famous. I met him many years ago when I was working in TV. He was a comedian just kind of starting out. Very clean humor and super hilarious. He has done TV, of course, and a couple of movies, too. Why he never had a series may be because his humor would be lost on the European audience and American studios usually try to sell to that market.
Thanks for the explanation! 😀
You are welcome, Lynn! I have bene gone from this blog awhile. How is everything?
We’re surviving, thanks so much for asking. Writing a lot, trying to see positives in this Horror show we’re living through. I’ve not been blogging much either. How are you keeping?
Keeping pretty well. Everyone here is in good health. As for blogging, I have been doing other things … which have gotten pretty boring and am ready to do some more stuff.
Nice to see you around 😊
Thanks for the explanation of who he is. It’s a good read once you know that. Has he ever performed over here, do you know?
That’s a good question, Mike. Since his humor is exclusively American and regional (making references to things like Slim Jim beef sticks or Coca-Cola or hunting or farming the American way), he might be not have played in Europe. Although, it would be a good idea to try. After all, we like Andy Capp here, but Andy touches on things that are universal.
I see from other comments that he’s an American comedian. I also see from the comments that your intro regarding Americans and non-Americans is completely accurate!
Hahaha! You got it!
Well, I got it–and will gladly take responsibility for it failing to amuse others. Maybe you should have went with Grandma and the walking farts. That speaks in a language everyone around the world understands. 🙂
Like an opinion — everybody’s spouts and they all smell. 😀
Git ‘er done! Gah… my husband used to love to watch him and the others in the Blue Collar Comedy Tour..
No kidding? Of course, it’s not lost on Canadians, I’m sure, since we’re land-locked.
Yep. Big fan was he. His kind of humour
After reading the other comments I got it! Yea!
My short story
Very well, sir. Go to the head of the class. You might like Larry. Who knows?
I’m American, I got it, and I’m amused. Why not?
Thanks all the same, Linda! Larry is pretty hilarious, isn’t he?
I’ve never seen Larry the Cable guy but, for good or bad, get ‘er done often slips through my lips. I’m glad you’re back!
Thanks, Alicia. I always knew it as “Get it done, Johnny Reb” from the movie Rio Grande with John Wayne and Maureen O’Hara (their first motion picture pairing —and a really great movie).
