whats this all about?
Re: wry cooter?...
what are you talking about?
im now having reservations about making this thread.
i just wanted to see what this name means.
Wry- Dryly humorous, often with a touch of irony.
Cooter- A freshwater tortois of Florida. (Or a town in MO).
So unless cooter has some slang meaning, "Wry Cooter" is a dryly humorous turtle from Florida. God I love dictionary.com...
(Though I'm sure the Wry Cooter can fill us in on the real reason he called himself that. Cool name!)
i believe its a phonetic take on the name ry cooder. a musician and songwriter who's been greatly unappreciated throughout his career.
Although I think the phoenetic puns were intentional.
or rye cooter?
isnt cooter slang for something nasty?
so a rye one would be double on the nasty!!!
for a second I thought it said "why cooter?"....
he he he...
No, no, no...
Cooter was the mechanic from the Dukes of Hazzard. You remember, the guy that Bo and Luke would call on the CB to see if he "had his ears on"?
Obviously, this is in reference to the un-broadcast episode where Cooter puts a Ford carbuerator on the General Lee and then smugly sits back and makes hinting-jokes whenever Bo and Luke make comments about the throttle feeling funny.
"Well gosh, Cooter, I know you said you didn't do anything to the General besides an oil change, but she shure does run a little funny. I hope that Uncle Jessie hasn't been hiding any shine in the gas tank."
(This is funny to Cooter, of course, because everyone knows that the General Lee is a Dodge. )
