10 Things To Do With That Bandanna in Your Back Pocket

Written on March 17, 2008 – 6:00 am | by whiskeychick |

Ump ButtDo you know what I always wondered? Why DO all those southern boys walk around with bandannas in their pockets? Is it a boy scout thing? A gentlemen thing? So I asked around and found out… it’s a southern thing. Turns out there’s a hell-ton of uses for that little rag that I never really considered! Here were the most popular suggestions I was given by our readers:

  • You can use a bandanna to stuff in a radiator if the cap blows off.
  • Bandannas make a great gag if your woman won’t shut up.
  • Bandannas make a better sweatrag than anything else when you’re playin a show.
  • A wet bandanna’ll snap a sumbitch’s ass as good as any towel.
  • Bandanna’s can be tied around a gaping fleshwound to stop the bleedin’.
  • Some chick said her bandannas make good hairties, but I thought this was a southern BOY thing!
  • Then her boyfriend said bandannas make good wrist restraints. Salvation!

Other suggestions were made along the lines of potholders, snotrags, impromptu baby diapers, skinny chick tube tops, lunchbags, sling rock throwers, and the like… Turns out there’s a hell of a lot more to that little red rag than I thought!

    also gay men used to wear different colored bandannas in the back pockets to signify what they were cruising for.

    a bandana aint for a gay. the country boys just think it look s good, and somtimes it signifies gangs

    actually this isn’t good in most parts. It gives the signal that you’re a gang member. If you have a red bandana hanging from your rear pocket it’s saying you’re part of the “bloods” gang and if you have a blue one hanging from your pocket you in the “crips”. It would be safe to carry that bandana folded up in your pocket. Don’t travel into neighborhoods youre not familiar with hanging a bandana in your rear pocket. My co-worker almost got killed because he was working with gang member and didn’t know it til later on. The manager spoke to him and told him not to let his bandana hang out or else he’ll be dead by the end of the day.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
