-->"Well, I flew into Birmingham... The Imperial Wizard from the Klan picked me up at the airport. Rode to the club on the back of an old mule, tried to get a joke out over the shouts of 'Jew boy, go home!' At the end of it I said 'Where's my check?' They go 'Yer not gettin' a check, yer gettin' this bag o' pork rinds!' ...Is that answer you were looking for, you narrow-minded, fake-liberal ''fuck?''"

* Creator/ToddBarry has a routine in which someone asks him "Oh God, what was ''that'' like?" what he did a gig in Alabama. He answers, "Oh, you know... chairs, microphone..." He then realizes what the person really wants to hear and goes on a condescending tangent of Deep South stereotypes before cursing at the person's narrow-mindedness:

** Australia also has the ''Deep North''. The term is sometimes used for Queensland, which actually has a history of plantations (sugarcane rather than cotton) staffed by labourers some of whom were forcibly abducted from across the sea (the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Sea_Islander South Sea Islanders]]), as well as the second most rural population of any Australian state. In this sense, it is somewhat similar to Alabama. Its education system has been described as [[http://www.abc.net.au/religion/articles/2012/10/22/3615647.htm "the least secular in the country".]] Pauline Hanson, a politician whose short career was based on campaigning on such issues as the 'danger' Australia would be 'swamped by Asians', was more popular in Queensland than anywhere else. For these reasons and others, Queensland is often stereotyped as redneck.

And during the 1970s and 1980s, Queensland was ruled with an iron fist by state premier Sir Joh Bjelke-Petersen, who eventually stepped down in the wake of a massive corruption scandal. For these reasons and others, Queensland is often stereotyped as redneck.

The highest figure of authority down there is the reverend of the local evangelical congregation (usually either Baptist or Pentecostal), leading to the zone being often called the "Bible belt"; And unlike the rest of the country, the MoralGuardians and the CulturePolice are ''actually'' supported and respected. So ''don't'' complain about the military, ''don't'' admit that you think ''QueerAsFolk'' was groundbreaking, ''don't'' try to explain how [[UsefulNotes/NeoPaganism Paganism]] has nothing to do with devil worship, and ''don't'' go out to the secluded farm house when your car breaks down in the rain... Unless the [[SacredHospitality Southern Hospitality]] is being played up, that is.
