A Country Of Idiots by Jeff Foxworthy-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Comedian Jeff Foxworthy allegedly wrote a viral email about the United States titled, “A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots.”
The TruthOrFiction.com team contacted Jeff Foxworthy’s publicist, Maggie Houlehan, who confirmed that the article was not written by the comedian who is famous for his “You might be a redneck” jokes.
The author turned out to be Fritz Edmunds, who intentionally wrote it in Foxworthy’s style of humor for politicallytrue.com. Edmunds also disclosed that he borrowed some of the ideas from an email that did not contain any copyright.
The piece went viral on the Web and eventually was erroneously attributed to Jeff Foxworthy.
