When in doubt... laugh at the expense of others

My sister has a little bit of a "trailer trash" phobia. (By the way, the above picture is not of my sister... ) She won't hang car air fresheners from her rear-view mirror or eat cheese from a can. I, on the other hand, have learned to embrace the role of trailer trash, and I have to tell ya, it's really not that bad. In fact, I would almost call it "liberating". So, to honor my fellow "trashies" (as only I call them) here is a little humor for ya.

How to throw a trailer trash themed party – By the way, I am TOTALLY throwing this party someday!!

Send unique invitations. Incorporate details such as the date, time and place to reflect your Trailer Trash theme. For example, write the invites on old newspapers and say funny things like, "clothing, teeth and mullet optional."
Prepare Trailer Trash food and drinks. Lay out a spread of pork rinds, chips, dips, Vienna sausages, cheese curls, Spam and squeeze cheese. For beverages, a keg of rootbeer is a necessity, as well as trash can punch.
Play the right music to set the mood. Make some mix CDs to play during your Trailer Trash themed party that include country music, southern rock, John Cougar Mellencamp, Springsteen, Van Halen, Black Sabbath, Kid Rock or any music that says "Trailer Trash" to you.
Decorate your home in the Trailer Trash theme. Cover the windows in aluminum foil and old cartoon character sheets. Put Christmas lights up around the front porch. Hang a clothes line covered in old, holey socks, t-shirts, bras and underwear. Posters of swimsuit models and race cars are a good touch as well.
Wear the perfect Trailer Trash costume. Do your hair in a big style, in curlers or a mullet. Women can wear heavy, cheap eye makeup and lipstick. Other good costume pieces include tacky jewelry, caftans, dirty acid-washed jeans, cut offs, old white tank tops, visible underwear, bandannas, cowboy hats, big belt buckles, anything made of lycra, sparkly kitten sweatshirts and alcohol promotional t-shirts and hats.
Organize Trailer Trash games and entertainment. Have a male wet t-shirt contest, a spitting contest and an obligatory chugging contest. Have your guests vote for the king and queen of the trailer park. Set up a TV and play videos of Jerry Springer, Cops, NASCAR and hunting shows.
