n.— «Scottie was incensed when he read in The Washington Post that Douggie had referred to us as “Fredneck County.” The Post account last Friday said that Douggie had used the term “jokingly.”…And neither man seems to have a firm grasp on the meaning of the word, “Fredneck,” these days. Certainly, decades ago, it was a pejorative word, meaning a racist bucolic bumpkin.» —“Fabulous Fredneck County” Fredneck News-Post (Maryland) Oct. 27, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
