Duck Dynasty is a good show.
It has its fair share of haters. It’s not the most intellectually stimulating show, and it’s probably somewhat scripted, but it is still good entertainment. It highlights the way of life for filthy rich rednecks. It’s hilarious, it has a strong connection with faith and it is great television. Si is my favorite (like everyone else’s).
Every episode of the show ends with a prayer and a moral wrap-up within a Christian context. Kind of like Full House, except not, because it’s far less cheesy.
Stars of the show have visited Lipscomb University in Nashville, Harding University in Searcy, Ark., Faulkner University in Montgomery, Ala., and Oklahoma Christian University in Oklahoma City. All of these schools share one prominent aspect in common: they are all affiliated with the Church of Christ.
So is ACU. But it’s not on this list of Christian schools where the hilarious, Christian rednecks have visited.
This needs to change. And fast.
Uncle Si, Jase, Willie, Phil and Miss Kay: please come visit our dear Christian college. We have ponds and lakes where you can fish and swim, and you might even be able to catch some bullfrogs before the sun rises. And hey, you won’t have any trouble finding sweet tea. Need a donut-eating rematch? We have those too, Jack. Plus, the Optimist has a Ping-Pong table in our newsroom, and we would give Jase and Willie a tough match.
Miss Kay can come fix dinner in my apartment if she wants; she can even make squirrel or alligator or crawdads. Just as long as it comes with her banana pudding.
Robertsons, we share your faith and the affiliation of at least four other universities you’ve visited. Come check out Abilene. You will be received warmly.
And hey, please bring along Mountain Man, Jack. Thanks. Just give me plenty of warning so I can let my beard grow out.
