Only in Kentucky (26 Photos)

A few strange headlines from the great state of Kentucky. I’m sure they aren’t indicative of most people in Kentucky, but still, they exist…

    • glw

      Alas me too : (

    • Awesome

      I'm just happy the Kentucky Wildcats aren't gonna make the tourney… Way to 'Reload' (Rock Chalk!!!)

      • ronnie

        Go Cards!

      • @therealtoot

        You're just sulking in your own tears for the embarrassment the Wildcats put on your beloved Jayhawks. In case you forgot, the 2012 banner is in Lexington, not Lawrence.

        • Awesome

          I take pride in that game. You guys had 7 NBA players and we had 1, and we still almost pulled it out. You got out coached, out played, and out-classed. We just got out-talented. When we have a shot to win with 4 minutes left against superior talent, it definitely takes the sting out of the loss.

          Plus it's just a matter of time before UK has to vacate those wins just like Coach C has had to do at EVERY SCHOOL HE'S EVER BEEN AT…

          • @therealtoot

            That's the difference between Kansas and Kentucky. You take pride in losing, we hang banners like the champions we are. You sound like everyone else that claims we'll have our wins revoked. Come up with your own information if you want to argue against the winningest program in college basketball history.

    #25 is really quite a sad story

    • TreyD

      Take your pick, Die of terminal cancer or have your junk removed

    • lex_ky

      He went in to have the cancer removed but when they doctor started he realized that the cancer had spread into his penis. so with informing the guy the doctor just went ahead and removed his penis.

      • jaaaa

        Alright….. and let me repeat TreyD..

        Take your pick, Die of terminal cancer or have your junk removed…. even without being informed ahead of time.

      WTF chive, why do you keep deleting my post?

  • Anjin-San

    #16 cuz Jim Beam is cheaper than gas..

    • Silverstone

      "Man arrested for alcohol abuse".

    • B-to-the-H

      Gas tank would always be on empty.

    • Underbaker

      I think it is a scam to get people to put Bourbon in the fake tank that he drinks later. Just a thought.

    • @therealtoot

      Because Jim Beam is roughly $25-$30 a gallon. Epic fail.

  • Michael Sword

    We have some fucked up things happening in our state..

  • HiddenLevel

    #18 I don't know the rest of the story, but something tells me it took quite a few store employees to figure out this wasn't legit

  • Silverstone

    #3 So…….why was the horse intoxicated?

    • Underbaker

      Probably ate some fermented apples, but who knew it was illegal to ride a drunk horse.

  • JustMerc

    I won't lie…this is all a pretty good indicator of the general demeanor here in KY.

  • meh

    Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.

    God I love bourbon!

  • Micah

    And KY has more barrels of bourbon than people!! I love this place!

  • TheBAMFinater

    Has nothing on Florida, this is just an average day.

  • doug

    kentucky can keep its retards.btw im quite sure that burbon powered car is probably as fuel efficent when its traveling normally as a bugatti veyron traveling at its max speed

    • Singletrackmind

      Says the guy who can't spell correctly.

      • Jawbone

        Yeah…. Doug shouldn't be referring to anyone else as "retarded". Kettle and pot and all that.

  • HickoryHeel01

    Kentucky gave us Jennifer Lawrence. All else is forgiven.

    • Tar Tarlton

      Kentucky gave us Hunter S. Thompson. Win.

  • thecircu5

    Jennifer Lawrence was born in Kentucky, all other arguments are invalid.

    • HickoryHeel01

      Clearly, great minds work alike.

  • JPPO

    That's the reason I don't eat Kentucky Fried Chicken; it makes people dumb…

    • whoami

      It's not the chicken, it's the multple generations of incest

    • glw

      fuck you

  • lexchiver

    Kentucky is a beautiful state that I have called home my entire life. Having said that, there are some really screwed up people here.

    • david

      Downtown Lex. Born and raised.

    • JustSayin'

      Lexington Chiver Myself! We need to petition for a Chive Meet Up! Where the Bourbon will flow like wine and the Chivers will flock like the salmon of Capistrano…

      • 40511

        Unleash the Unbridled Spirit! Is there a Lexington Chiver Page?

  • Savage308

    i remember watching the news when #23 was reported… face met palm so freaking hard that day.

    in any case… i do love the bluegrass state. beautiful scenery, super nice people and some very charming southern bells. oh… and bourbon!

  • Epitomizer

    Oklahoma doesn't seem so bad anymore.

    • MonkeyMadness

      Oh, come on now, we Okies have our share of idiots. But it's good to see other states have their share too. 😛

  • Ked

    The story in #26 is hilarious, It happened about 20 minutes from my parents house. Got to love Kentucky and our "colorful" antics…GO CATS!!!!!!!

  • Guest

    Birds can't fly in Oklahoma….they work themselves to death, but they don't ever make progress (cause of the wind, i'm not high)

  • OldKYhome

    Being from KY, I can assure you one thing and one thing only. Louisville and KY are two different things. Louisville is an island in the middle of this^. It's fascinating to travel outside The Ville's gates into the sea of redneck abyss from time to time, but you find yourself rushing to get back to Louisville. The place where the people are tolerant, accepting, progressive and kind. Oh, Ky. There are no words. You could write this story with pretty much any state's name…but still. I'm not denying this is relatively normal behavior for the state in general.

    • SteelDirigible

      What are you talking about? Louisville is my least favorite city in the state, it's a dump. The YUM center is the only nice thing. And that little mexican restaurant downtown….

      • bluemoon6790

        Define "dump". And what parts of the city are you talking about?

        • david

          Louisville is fine, don't ever go to Frankfort.

          • bluemoon6790

            Haha, to be fair, I live in Louisville.

            I was just surprised to see such a vehement negative response. Normally, in my experience, that sort of response comes from a person who's only really come into downtown on the interstate, then left again via interstate. Corresponds a lot to UK fans that come in for one game, see the Yum Center, then leave by the same route.

            They have a tough time admitting that the city that shares a name with their hated rivals could possibly have any redeeming features.

    • John

      False, "The Ville" is the turd in all of Kentucky's beautiful punch bowl.

    • Tar Tarlton

      Kentuckians who don't live in Louisville consider Louisville to be a part of Indiana. Also, Go Cats.

    • vegasnites

      Ignore the people saying Louisville is a dump.. Anyone that likes Louisville will not like the rest of KY and vice versa. If I had to move back to that hell hole I'd live in Louisville.

  • A.J.R

    This is amature work… Check out the local headlines in Orlando and Miami that's the crazy/stupid headlines

  • MonkeyMadness

    #25 Sounds like he went off half cocked.

  • Brad

    I was working at that fire house that the porn star broke into….quite the interesting evening

  • TreyD

    Who has my yellow marker??
