For years I have heard people use that phrase to describe a remote community. sometimes in a more unseemly language. I never thought it to be an insult. I guess in today's world people are too sensitive. Let's also drop the words. , hillbilly....rednecks...shorty.....baldy....slim....fats...sexy... Four eyes......any more???
