Country music is the lifeblood of Whiskey Riff, and we pride ourselves on standing firmly in the corner of the independent artists, and those few in the mainstream still doing it the right way. Whether it’s Waylon, Willie and legends of the past, or superstars in the making like Zach Bryan, our finger is always on the pulse of true country music. From Texas to Tennessee, Appalachia to Bakersfield, Whiskey Riff is THE unapologetic voice of the country music fan.
A RIFF on what makes the great outdoors…great.
“Country” is more than just a steel guitar. It’s a lifestyle. A mindset. A cold beer, hot grill, the game on and the great outdoors. A lifestyle and culture so perfectly captured by the country greats of yesterday, but still alive and well today.
Whiskey Riff is that lifestyle.
On ‘Whiskey Riff Raff,’ Steve Gazibara and Wes Langeler give an unfiltered and unapologetic take on country music, life, and all the craziness that comes with it. Laugh with us. Rant with us. Drink with us.
I think I speak for everybody when I say that cousin Eddie from Christmas Vacation is by far the most quotable character in any Christmas movie ever, and that’s saying a lot.
Needless to say, Randy Quaid outdid himself on this one.
With sayings like:
“You serious, Clark?”
“That’s the gift that keeps on givin’.”
“Aw he’s just yackin’ on a bone.”
“If that thing had nine lives, she just spent ’em all.”
If you’ve never seen this movie and don’t know the context, I suggest you give it a watch as soon as possible. Top five Christmas movies of all time, no doubt, but arguably the best.
But perhaps there isn’t a better part of the movie, than when cousin Eddie is out on the front lawn in a robe with no pants, emptying his septic system from their RV.
And that’s when he says the most iconic line of all:
With that being said, some genius in the Dogwood subdivision of Shepherdsville, Kentucky, decided to recreate the hilarious scene with a mannequin in their front yard.
But, unfortunately, there’s a few Karens who don’t get the joke, and thought it was an actual person and alerted the authorities, according to the Daily Herald.
Apparently the call to 911 went a little something like this:
“A male standing outside. He is naked. He has a robe covering part of his body. He is exposing himself, and he has a hose between his legs.”
Homeowner Joni Keeney thought it would be a hilarious idea (as she should).
She told the outlet:
“Everybody has a Cousin Eddie… I just want people to have a good Christmas and get a laugh.”
Don’t let the haters get to ya, Joni.
This is masterful work, and the best Christmas display I’ve seen all winter.
And just incase you wanted to relive the whole scene:
