The Slug Saaalutes CMT for Airing "Hee Haw" Reruns

Wudya get if you cross "Laugh-In" with a redneck? The iconic bumpkin variety show "Hee Haw," which CMT has unbelieveably but thankfully begun airing reruns of this summer. (Maybe it has something to do with that spot-on "Wonder Shozen" spoof "Horse Apples.") The Slug is falling in love again with the vintage cheesy production values, live but obviously lip-synced country music performances and corny jokes told from the middle of a cornfield . We can't help but wonder if  "Hee Haw" was actually self-aware during its 25-season run. Doesn't matter. It's still funnier than "SNL."
