A ventriloquist working down South, is confronted by a theater patron during his show.
The hick stands up and yells, “HEY YOU! ON STAGE! You been making smart remarks about us southerners being stupid all night long!We”re not all stupid ya know!”
“Relax,” said the ventriloquist, “They”re just jokes!”
“Shut up, buddy,” the hick
replied, “I’m talking to that little jerk sitting on your knee!”
