The Dukes of…Huh?

Yesterday the car outside car handles finally broke for good so my wife blogged about it. Since we can’t open the doors from the outside, we have to keep a window down or open the back door and reach way up to open the doors. So, I made a comment on her blog:

I think we should just do the Dukes of Hazzard thing for a while instead. It’ll be cheaper.

To which my wife replied:

We could but I’m not wearing Daisy Dukes.

So, today we got the following email:

What’s the Dukes of Hazzard thing?!?

To which I replied:

You mean my comment, or hers?

Mine is about how there were no windows in the General Lee and the doors were welded shut. They always jumped in the car with the windows down.

Patricia doesn’t want to wear short shorts like Daisy Duke.

To which we received another reply:

Hold up. General Lee is the name of a CAR???? Was there a roof on the car? Did they dive in through the windows?

I always thought Daisy Dukes were just the name of short shorts. I didn’t know it was based on something!

Sigh. I had no idea I was about to give out an entire synopsis of one of the coolest TV shows of my childhood:

Bo and Luke Duke were just good ol’ boys, never meanin’ no harm. Beats all you’ve ever saw, been in trouble with the law since the day they was

Their cousin was Daisy Duke. She wore VERY short shorts. They were called Daisy Dukes.

They lived in Hazzard County, Georgia with their Uncle Jesse.

Boss Hogg was the sheriff (what was Boss Hogg, anyway?) and his sheriff was Rosco P. Coltraine. He had a hound dog named Flash.

The car that Bo and Luke drove was called the General Lee. It was orange and had a rebel flag painted on the top. The doors were welded shut and there were no windows. You see, it never rains (apparently) in Hazzard County.

Daisy drove a cool white Jeep with an eagle on the hood. It never had the top up and I don’t think it had a name.

Don’t worry. They’re making a movie about it this year.

Oh, and this may show up in a blog near you…

  • Daisy’s jeep was named Dixie, and Boss Hogg was the county dictator. He held every city and county position except of course sheriff.

  • i used to have a 1979 Volvo GL and we used to get in and out through the sun roof…that was fun…climbing up from the back of the car and up on the roof. it was fun when there were 4 people or so getting in the car.

    i think we used to also go in through the front side windows for fun too, not necessity…although the doors on that Volvo were tricky to open even when they were working properly.

    i think you might as well go through the window, Hazzard style, at least until it gets fixed.
