Do you think if a tall white boy wearing wranglers,boots,a big belt buckle,button up shirt,and a cowboy hat with a twang pulled up in downtown Chicago or NYC in his Ford F-350 with dried mud all over the bottom of it smelling like hay and manure that people wouldnt trip out if they saw him.

Yes...but as a hygiene and odor issue. Why is he so nasty? I'm thinking that most country people would shower and clean up before going out in the city just like anyone else.

I'm sorry but I really don't think that MOST big-city residents are that ignorant.

I dont know Im just going off of what most of the cowboys looked like in my hometown, they cleaned up when they went out to eat but everything was the still the same, and you can smell the manure on the trucks.

I once saw a standing guy in Times square wearing a cowboy hat cowboy boots underwear and nothing else playing his guitar and singing loudly. I thought - wow, what a gay ranchero - but what do you expect? It's New York - just a different kinda of weirdness. I was just amused.

I've seen lots of very deep South looking people in NYC. My feeling is all are equally welcome and unwelcome. Amidst gypsies, burkas, mextico indians in full dress, afrikaneers, cossacks, gangstas, goths, crossdressers, men with boobs, Hassidics, monks, hippies, beatniks, klansman, nazis, homeless, zombies, mafiosos, the nation of islam and spiderman - what's so shocking about a hillbilly?


(taken last week in nyc.)

I don't think anyone in the USA knows how badly humans can stink until you go to Europe.

I was thinking about the cowboy hat thing...there are country and western clubs/bars in NYC and pretty much in every large U.S. city, and from my experience people often wear cowboy hats and boots in those establishments...and you can even spot some on the big-city streets...

That was probably the Naked cowboy who is from Ohio.

Yeah, see - look at Deacons pix and you can see you can literally stand nearly buck naked in Times Sq and no one's gonna freak out. Rural Americans visit NY everyday just like people from every corner of the world do. It is so diverse in NYC, everybody feels comfortable because the only thing everyone really has in common in NYC is that they are all different. And that's great.

Missy, thanks you're right.

Dude, it seems like you're trying very hard to get us to bash by constricting your definitions. I have no doubt that if you ask the people wearing those cowboy hats if they are real they would assure you they are. If you like, I guess it could be said that if you drove all the way from NM to NYC without washing your car or clothes, someone might wonder why you didn't, but I doubt anyone would run across Broadway to challenge you.

I met a cash poor family from TN last week on their once in a lifetime visit to NYC and I thought that was just too sweet how mom and dad saved up all their money to show the kids the big city. I have more respect for these type of people than over-privileged royal jet setters any day, but I have good manners for the king as well. Big cities like NY and CHI were founded on the labor of the huddled masses - our grandparents and great-grandparents. We have a saying - "where six can eat, seven can eat." There's room at the table for everybody and although if you look quite unusual someone without tact might get ill-mannered, but generally most people anywhere - big city or small - respect other people regardless of their background.

I'm sure Farmer Jones works hard for his money and I respect him for that. If I meet him in Times Sq, I'll wish him a wonderful stay and point him to my favorite deli where he can eat like a king for five bucks.
