If you have heard the hot new song “Countri Bunkan” from the fast rising reggae star, Melodic Yoza, you are probably wondering what is a “Countri Bunkan”.
A country bunkan is the Jamaican version of the American or British country bumpkin. They are not exactly the same however, while a countri bunkan is as simple as the country buumpkin, he/she is not racist. So a country bunkan might have the hillbilly tendencies of the country bumpkin but definitely not the redneck tendencies.
While a country bunkan would offer president Obama his ten acre marijuana farm for the president daughter’s hand in marriage, the country bumpkin would say, “why not offer him a cotton field instead.”
A person, usually from a rural area, the south or small town; who speaks or behaves in a manner that indicates a lack of understanding of the ever changing, modern world. Country bumpkins tend to speak in terms of social overtones indicative of pre-civil rights America and characteristically speak in offensive terms without knowledge of doing so. A bumpkin is more ignorant than uneducated, though most are probably uneducated. Either way, educated or not, country bumpkins are neccesarily ignorant. Country bumpkins come in every ethnicity and in both genders.
People who practice southern “good ole boy” politics are country bumpkins.
People who still say “colored” when referring to African Americans or say “heya, heya,… heya, heya” when referring to Native Americans are country bumpkins.
“Did you hear that country bumpkin call the people on the nearby reservation, ‘injuns’?”
