este assunto não é novo, mas fiquei com uma dúvida, devido ao jogo das palavras, edição 29.
Encontrei no dicionário -> yokel = caipira, este termo se trata apenas de substantivo?? É utilizdo para dizer algo como "O caipira trabalha em sua horta." ou pode ser um adjetivo, como em "frango caipira", "vida caipira", etc??
Após ter postado uma resposta fiquei com esta dúvida.
Caipira seems to be a backwards person (because of his limited education), right?

2. "The term has been used for different groups in different time periods. The most common American usage, that of the working class rural white Southerner, is generally believed to derive from individuals having a red neck caused by working outdoors in the sunlight over the course of their lifetime.
In the Dictionary of American Regional English, the earliest citation of the term in this context is from 1830, as "a name bestowed upon the Presbyterians of Fayetteville [North Carolina]". A citation from 1893 provides a definition as "poorer inhabitants of the rural districts...men who work in the field, as a matter of course, generally have their skin burned red by the sun, and especially is this true of the back of their necks".
3. Many refer to rednecks as "trailerpark trash" or some other epithet.

Back then a true Oregon Redneck was the type of person who liked mudbogging, big pickups with bigger tires, rodeo, the American Flag, drinking beer at the drive-in, wearing cowboy boots and western clothes, taking a dip of chew, just about everyone had a ring in their levis back pocket from skoal or coppenhagen."
