One we probably won't see on America's Funniest Home Videos. Sounds like they were drag racers...

(AP) SEDRO-WOOLLEY, Wash. (AP) - Two men who were apparently trying to take an unusual thrill ride were seriously injured in an explosion at a shop that builds and services race cars in Washington state.

Fire Chief Dean Klinger told the Skagit Valley Herald the men put about four gallons of methanol in a 55-gallon barrel in the parking lot Sunday night, sat on top and lit it for a "barrel ride."

Klinger says, "Apparently it was supposed to slide across the parking lot like a rocket. Instead, it blew up."

He says one end of the barrel flew 120 feet.

The men were responsive when paramedics arrived at Funk Racing. They were taken to a local hospital, then flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with severe burns.

Do you think some other alcohol was involved in this venture?

The death of a redneck is often preceeded by,"Hey boys, watch this".

'The death of a redneck is often preceeded by,"Hey boys, watch this".'

Or "Here, hold my beer..."

Normally, I do not post into some other Divisions important discussions.

However, when I see an obvious error, I must speak up.

A true redneck would never "Hey boys, watch this."

He says-- Hey y'all, hold my beer & watch this!

And just for a Tuesday treat here are some
things you would never hear a Redneck say...
*We don't keep firearms in this house.
*You can't feed that to the dog.
*No kids in the back of the pick-up, it's not safe.
*Wrasslin's fake.
*We're vegetarians.
*Do you think my hair is too big?
*Who's Richard Petty?
*Deer heads detract from the decor.
*Spitting is such a nasty habit.
*I just couldn't find a thing at Wal-Mart today.
*Trim the fat off that steak.
*The tires on that truck are too big.
*I've got two cases of Champagne for the Super Bowl.
*Little Debbie snack cakes have too many fat grams.
*She's too old to be wearing that bikini.
*Those shorts ought to be a little longer, sweety.
*Elvis who?
*Do you think this ball cap goes with this shirt?

Now, y'all have a nice day, hear!
