How to Install a Southern Security System

Go to Goodwill and buy a pair of size 14 or 16 men’s work boots.

Place them on your front porch, along with a copy of Guns & Ammo magazine.

Put four giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazines.

Leave a note on your door that reads:Bubba,Me and Marcel, Donnie Ray and Jimmy Earl went for more ammo and beer. Be back in a bit. Don’t mess with the pit bulls. They got the mailman this morning and messed him up really bad. I don’t think Killer took part but it was hard to tell from all the blood and everything. Anyway, I locked all four of ‘em in the house. Better wait outside. Be right back.Cooter
