Cletus Ray Hogg

My dad just went to a speech by Cletus Ray Hogg. Cletus Ray Hogg is a walking, talking Bob Dylan song.

Cletus Ray Hogg shot the first black brakeman hired by the Illinois Central Railroad. Both assailant and victim got religion after the shooting. Hogg got sober in jail and stayed that way. The victim got a Doctorate in Divinity from Memphis Theological Seminary and runs a megachurch in the Whitehaven district in Memphis.

This is why so much great literature comes out of the south. Only in the south do you get Cletus Ray Hoggs sharing a story with that much triumph, transcendence and recovery, because only southerners are the Cletus Ray Hogg degree of screwed up.

Evolution happens.

So is this:

a) Reformed Church of Dumbass,
b) Church of Dumbass, Reformed, or
c) Church of Reformed Dumbass

BTW: The only "Cletus Hogg" that I can find appears to be from "The Dukes of Hazzard"

Strike that, B.

The Church of Cletus Hogg of Latter-Day Dumbasses.
