* When the Olympics were held in Atlanta, the ''New Yorker'' had a cartoon ("Too Busy City") on the cover in sepia (like an old photo), with a hayseed with straw in his mouth at the Olympics, and at least one chicken. It received some very angry letters.
** On the other hand, when Creator/JeffFoxworthy made very similar (if not worse) jokes about the very same subject, there was no uproar whatsoever as [[NWordPrivileges he is himself from Atlanta]].

When the Olympics were held in Atlanta, the ''New Yorker'' had a cartoon ("Too Busy City") on the cover in sepia (like an old photo), with a hayseed with straw in his mouth at the Olympics, and at least one chicken. It received some very angry letters.
** On the other hand, when Creator/JeffFoxworthy made very similar (if not worse) jokes about the very same subject, there was no uproar whatsoever as since [[NWordPrivileges he is himself from Atlanta]].



** Partly as a response to the criticism of Atlanta hosting the Olympics, the rural community of East Dublin, Georgia, located about 140 miles southeast of Atlanta, hosted the "[[http://summerredneckgames.com/ Redneck Games]]" annually from 1996 to 2012 in celebration of the trope, with events such as "bobbing for pig's feet" and the "mud-pit belly flop". The concept has been since copied in other places, including those north of the Mason-Dixon line, such as Malone, New York and Minto, Ontario.

As an example; while pre-marital sexual encounters and casual one-night stands are common nowadays, sex is SeriousBusiness down there, with Southerners firmly believing in the golden rule of "marriage before sex"--or at least, "marriage before childbirth"--so do ''not'' try to knock up one of the local girls there, or you will [[ShotgunWedding be married to her for the rest of your life]] (Southerners are ''extremely'' averse to abortion and divorce). If the girl in question is a typical SouthernBelle or a [[TheDukesOfHazzard Daisy Duke]], you are a really lucky guy; but if she is not any of these but [[{{Gonk}} a hillbilly as bucktoothed as the rest of their family]] ([[RealityEnsues as in most of cases]]), you'll have to marry anyways; if you try to run away, it's quite possible that they'll maim/mutilate/kill you. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer No, really. Their honour-code demands it.]]

** Pays a visit to the submerged, forgotten city of... UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}}. Yes, ''Atlanta'', largest city in Georgia and a major metropolitan area. Apparently the 1000-year timeskip has regressed this city back into a municipality inhabited by southern dandies, as all the "quality" people ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg and Jane Fonda]]) left when they airlifted the entire city out to float the ocean, built too much on it, and it sank. Appropriately, the episode this is from is called "The Deep South".

* Creator/DerekRobinson took time out from his usual 20th century war fiction to write ''Kentucky Blues'', which sought to subvert [[GoneWithTheWind notions of the Deep South]] as effectively as his WW1 air-war trilogy subverted the ''{{Biggles}}'' genre. Seen through the eyes of several feuding white families, and through the eyes of the slaves who are later freed, the novel is satirical BlackComedy.
* William Bradford Huie's novel ''TheKlansman'' is set in the Deep South, in a politically corrupt county in the years immediately preceding the Civil Rights movement. blacks are vilified and lynched - a central plot point is the alleged rape of a white woman by a black man. this is set against the deliberate false imprisonment and rape in prison of a visiting black woman from the North, who is viewed as "uppity" by local whites who determine she needs to be taught a lesson.

* Appears 2000 years in the future in ''ThundarrTheBarbarian'', when the hero in question encounters a CorruptHick sheriff in the populated ruins of 'Lanta.
* Mostly subverted in ''StrokerAndHoop''. For example when Hoop tries a pair of fake gross teeth to "fit in" his cousin that lives there is offended and even gets out a phone book to show they have plenty of dentists.

* ''Wally Gator'' has various characters like this, due to where some of the episodes were set. The main offender was a redneck turnip grower called Mr. Swampywater who was trigger-happy and angry, but there was also Harmony (a SouthernBelle alligator with no other real defining traits) and Beauregard (a beefy male alligator with tints of SouthernFriedPrivate who still wore the confederate symbol on his cap, although he wasn't exactly stupid). Wally himself is portrayed more at home in the Deep South outside of his title series, often being found in swamps in crossovers (like ''Yogi's Great Escape'', which also showed him to be good at cooking things like gumbo) and excelling at events set in and around water, especially marshes (in ''WesternAnimation/LaffALympics'').
