    Hate to be the one to break it to you, but the source for this is NOT Foxworthy. It's a take-off or spook of Foxworthy's classic "might be a redneck" that's been floating around the web for a long time. It IS funny, though!

    My kids have been out for over 10 years and sometimes still forget my birthday- But I don't buy it for one minute- you see my son and I have the same birthday. I think that the JW cheapness has still stuck to them a little. They have no problem celebrating their own birthdays either. This year I have made up special magnetic calendars for all of us that have all our birthdays on them- no excuses for 2007.

    I've read these on jw forums. Personally I think this is another jw urban legend; I don't believe Foxworthy really made up these jokes.

    This one has me laughing. Cant you just see them sticking tracts in the displays?

    I can't find anything on www.snopes.com on this, but it's highly unlikely the Foxworthy had anything to do with this.

    Still, funny...

    It wouldn't be funny to just anybody. I doubt he did it, but it is funny.

    ...you think nothing of letting your friends stop by to use the bathroom.

    Oh my God my mom lets them do that. She actually gave them a key once and they walked right in the door. My brother shot one of them, but he missed.

    Suffice it to say they never did that again
