Redneck Randal is an advice animal image macro series centered around a picture of a mustached young man wearing a sleeveless American pride t-shirt and posing with two thumbs up. The captions typically involve poking fun at the lifestyle of so-called American “rednecks,” a derogatory slang term for people from the southern United States associated with unabashed American pride, beer drinking, and rural life.
The earliest known instance of the image macro was shared on Reddit on March 4th, 2011. The caption alludes to an incestual relationship between the character and his daughter, a common trope employed in redneck humor. Originally uploaded via Quickmeme, there are 7891 instances of the series on the site as of May 2012.
Following the blog coverage of Redneck Randal, a Memebase user commented on May 11th, 2011 that the identity of the man in the photo is a Texas arcade owner named Cory Clinkscales. Meanwhile, several other commenters claimed that the photo is of a Mississippi resident named Hunter Smith. The image’s original site of origin still remains unclear.
A compilation of Redneck Randal images were featured on internet humor blog The Bigster on May 22nd, 2011. Two additional sets from the series can be found on image macro gallery site #1 Meme Universal Trend in 2011. In 2012, another compilation was hosted on humor blog Runt of the Web. On Reddit, a Redneck Randal image post earned 1172 points on April 12th, 2012. The next month, an instance with the caption “Then I told the teacher lady I ain’t no homosapien, I’m a heterosapien” was featured as the “Meme of the Week” in the Atlanta magazine GA Voice. As of June 2012, there are more than 480 instances of the series on Reddit and more than 10,000 instances on Quickmeme. Redneck Randal has continued to spread on Memebase and Tumblr.
Almost Politically Correct Redneck
In May 2012, Redditor IanL27 submitted an image macro to the /r/adviceanimals subreddit in a post titled “I present to you: Somewhat Politically Correct Redneck”, which featured a photo of a young shirtless man with a mullet hairstyle standing next to a pickup truck and the caption “Not against gay marriage / unless the couple is colored.” The post was well received on /r/adviceanimals subreddit, spawning a significant volume of image macros that became known as Almost Politically Correct Redneck, portraying the man as a slightly more tolerant peer of Redneck Randal.
