“If you ever start feeling like you have the goofiest, craziest, most dysfunctional family in the world, all you have to do is go to a state fair. Because five minutes at the fair, you’ll be going, ‘you know, we’re alright. We are dang near royalty.” – Jeff Foxworthy 

“You know, I remember Career Day in high school. I remember plumbers and lawyers… I don’t remember a booth where you could sign up to learn how to shoot chickens out of a cannon at the windshield of an airplane, ’cause there would have been a line at my school to do that!” – Jeff Foxworthy 

“We’re all screwed up. And the way Christians mess things up is we act like we’ve got it going on. And if we would just stay in that place of, ‘Hey, we’re all screwed up and but for the grace of God, none of us have a shot here.’ We need to have a sense of humor about it; that’s kind of the way I’ve always faced my comedy.” – Jeff Foxworthy 

“My wife is so analytical with raising kids, and I am not. My feeling is if they turn out good, then that means I was a good daddy and put a lot of effort into it. If they turn out bad, it means they took after her side of the family.” – Jeff Foxworthy 

“The thing about that singles apartment is you never had to clean it up… until the day you got the security deposit back. You’re arguing with the landlord… ‘No sir, the back door was missing when we moved in here! The pizzas were always on the ceiling!” – Jeff Foxworthy

    He doesn’t think or act like he’s better than anybody else, he’s just like any other blue collar worker trying to make it in life. He’s what this country needs more of. He did his parents proud.
