There was a time when rural comedians drew most of their humor from tales of farmers' daughters, hogs, hens, and hill country high jinks. Lum and Abner and Ma and Pa Kettle might not have toured happily under the "Redneck" marquee, but they were its precursors. In Ain't That a Knee-Slapper: Rural Comedy in the Twentieth Century, author Tim Hollis traces the evolution of this classic American form of humor in the mass media, beginning with the golden age of radio, when such comedians as Bob Burns, Judy Canova, and Lum and Abner kept listeners laughing. The book then moves into the motion pictures of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, when the established radio stars enjoyed second careers on the silver screen and were joined by live-action renditions of the comic strip characters Li'l Abner and Snuffy Smith, along with the much-loved Ma and Pa Kettle series of films. Hollis explores such rural sitcoms as The Real McCoys in the late 1950s and from the 1960s, The Andy Griffith Show, The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, Hee Haw, and many others. Along the way, readers are taken on side trips into the world of animated cartoons and television commercials that succeeded through a distinctly rural sense of fun. While rural comedy fell out of vogue and networks sacked shows in the early 1970s, the emergence of such hits as The Dukes of Hazzard brought the genre whooping back to the mainstream. Hollis concludes with a brief look at the current state of rural humor, which manifests itself in a more suburban, redneck brand of standup comedy.

Alice, Meredith and Mossy find out all too soon that life in the fast lanes ain't easy, especially when you're a young, black woman from the south. If you looked up "sassy broad" in the dictionary, you'd find a picture of Alice Jones flashing a toothy smile at you. Being a woman of the night had made her hard to the core. However, despite her occupation, she considered herself a lady, determined to live life by her own rules, even if it meant breaking everyone else's rules in the process. Although they were sisters, Meredith and Alice were complete opposites. When she was forced to leave the south, Meredith moved in with Alice. With no money and no job, she was forced into the "family" business. It didn't take her long to realize that if she didn't find a safer way to make a living, she wasn't going to make it. Some secrets are meant to be kept. But Mossy found that keeping a secret was a heavy burden. And even the strongest person had her breaking point. Running from a secret that refused to be left behind drove Mossy right into Meredith's life and right into another mess.
