    A guy walks into a redneck bar in West Virginia and orders a white wine.

    All the hillbillies sitting around the bar look up, expecting to see some pitiful Yankee from the north.

    The bartender says, "You ain't from around here, are ya?"

    The guy says, "No, I'm from Canada."

    The bartender says, "What do you do in Canada?"

    The guy says, "I'm a taxidermist..."

    The bartender says, "A taxidermist? What in tarnation is a taxidermist? Do you drive a taxi?"

    "No, a taxidermist doesn't drive a taxi. I mount animals."

    The bartender grins and hollers... "It's okay boys. He's one of us."

    West Virgina became a state on June 20, 1863. Becoming the only state to form by seceding from a Confederate state. When I grew up in Virgina in the 1960's, West Virginians were considered to be Union sympathizers. And of course never to be mentioned as a Southern State. Wayne

    That's pretty stinkin' funny!

    West By Gawd has produced some of the most hilariously hard core hillbillies to ever hunt 'coon with a shotgun, but there are also a lot of decent, very hard-working people from there too. If nothing else, pistol enthusiasts must tip their hat toward the state for being the home of Novak Sights!

    a nice way to make friends wayne. show your ignorance in public and disrespect your neighbors. if you knew anything about the history, you would know that WV was divided by a terrible split in the civill war. you just pissed off all the mountaineers that didn't want to succeed.

    thanx for such a great thread. i now hate you.

    gr8shot, I do know the history very well. I was a little kid at the time, and thats what all the old folks talked about when asked why W. Virgina was a Union State and not a Confederate State. I mean no offense to anyone. My comment was to show how people thought of the split 100 years after it happened. Its unfortunate, but it is history. Wayne

    I will rephrase my earlier post.

    In Wheeling they have a small museum set up where they actually voted on the split from Virginia. Church pews and a short film explaining all about it. Bulge.

    If you read the U.S. Constitution, West Virginia is an not a state. In 1863, when West Virginia was admitted to the Union, Virginia was a member of the Confederacy, the constitution states that any portion of an existing state that wants to be admittted as a new states must meet all the current requirements and the loosing state legislature must vote to allow that portion of the state to become a new state. Virginia legislature did not vote in 1863 to allow West Virginia to become a state.
