Redneck Wedding, 1936

Jacob Zimmer, when asked why he and his son Donald were having a joint wedding to a pair of sisters (Grace and Dorothy Tripp), offered this explanation:

Donald's always liked farmin' like me and he likes music, too— plays the cornet and the tuba both. On top of that he likes to fish as well as I do, so it's just natural we'd like sisters—particularly sisters who like to go fishin'."

Doesn't get much more redneck than that.

Hysterical Expat! I've loved Ray Stevens since the Andy Williams show, and I'd never heard before. Thanks.

One of those family trees that goes straight down; no branches.
