    Judging belly flops is more of an exact science than you may think. Is the contestant parallel to the mud? Are her arms and hands fully extended? On the artistic side, is there a real sense of abandon? Is there a furl in her skirt? Unlike olympic diving, the more splash the better. . . And the judges have spoken: 10, 10, 9.9, 10, 10! P.S. The 9.9 would have preferred her to wear a tee shirt that says AC360, but where to get one?

    Risking life and limb, the first stage of the redneck triatholon is behind her, she needs to complete this second stage before ultimately reaching the final one – duck hunting with Dick Cheney.

    Hello Anderson,

    My mother and myself think that it's cool! If you wanna be a redneck be a redneck and celebrate it. People are always judgeing someone or something that's what's wrong with the world people need to chill gosh.

    Barbara ‘Redneck Queen’ Bailey was misled to believe a roll of new Lincoln pennies hidden in this redneck jacuzzi during the 13th Annual Summer Redneck Games July 11, 2009 in East Dublin, Georgia. Two quarters were lost during the incident.
