North Carolina's Big News
First of all, for those of us living in North Carolina, we can all now breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that this strip does not take place in these here parts. Y'all, we ain't gonna git the lot'ry up an' runnin' for a few months, yet. I s'pose these here dang hillbillies are livin' in another of our fine South'rn states. Thank God!
Just looked it up, they're in Kentucky. My birthplace. Fantastic. Here are some people from Kentucky: Loweezy Smith and Ashley Judd. Also: Snuffy Smith and George Clooney. This should be on their license plates: KENTUCKY: Home of Horses, Hillbillies, and Hotties. It would beat their current license plate which looks like something only potheads or toddlers might apreciate.
So, anyhooo. . . in Kentucky you get your lottery winnings in cash right away? Or do you ask for a lottery ticket, and they just hand you a $20 bill? Why is he holding the cash instead of the scratched off ticket? Why does the shopkeeper include "cash" on his list of options? HE'S ALREADY GOT THE CASH. YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE IT TO HIM.
What does the shopkeeper have on his left arm? An epaulet? A red spiral thing with a ribbon hanging off of it? What the hell is that? Is that some hill billy thing? Or a Kentucky thing? I lived there less than 3 months, so maybe Ashley Judd would know.
