After watching Big Fat Gypsy Wedding I was curious as to what the difference between hicks and gypsies?
Our problem, since both Waloshin and I come from the GWN, is that we have little experience with hicks or rednecks. We have our own, um, regional demographic groups that we like to tease... but not those. I suppose there is a resemblance in the lumberman's plaid... but not much more than that.Ah, Waloshin!
Your average hill dwelling yokel with sub-par intelligence is a hick. Granted, one does occasionally find a more well-rounded specimen of Hick, but this is a rare case. And there is a difference - however slight - between Hick and Redneck. Rednecks are all Hicks, but not all Hicks are Rednecks. Hicks also have a propensity for donning sweat pants and leotards.
