I hear folk using the term “Porch Monkey” without understanding its origins.

The term is correctly “Poarch Monkey” referring to the Poarch Creek Indian tribe most specifically in the Delta areas of Lower Alabama.

It came about with the cross breeding of the Africans and French with the tribe. Its a unique “Creole” breed of peoples.

My next education will be with the term “Raising Cain”

Which is different than a Porch Pirate which is different than a Butt Pirate which is the same as a Rump Ranger .... which should suffice as bait enough-to draw a few of them out in this thread.

Thank you for that clarification. I hate it when someone uses a racial epithet incorrectly.

I thought it was to explain the difference between the ones sitting on the porch and the yard apes running loose.

When the little apes get too fat and lazy to run around the yard, they become porch monkeys- - - -it's an evolution thing! When it gets too hot and humid out on the porch, they go inside, turn on the air conditioner and the computer, and spend all day trolling internet chat rooms.

I seen some just the other day; there they were seated in their chairs, on the porch, each side of the front door to the house. Looked like they were counting cars going passed.

Yeah, I’ve never seen toothless crackers do that….
You’ve obviously never driven through Appalachia before

The Poarch Tribe still exists. They have a reservation with a very nice truck stop on I65 there in south Alabam. Also, of course, a shiny new 20-story casino.

Over many thousands of miles of road, that was my favorite truck stop. Spent the night there hundreds of times.

I go there for lunch sometimes, I have a spread just west of there (65) on the Little River. When at my other spread north of there on the Burnt Corn I eat at the Shrimp Basket by Evergreen.

Me either. They normally have an old commode to set on, or they're all settin' together on an old sofa.

“Porch Monkey” didn't have nothing to do with Indians where I grew up.

You live just west of the Poarch Truck Stop. How about that.
And you like to eat at the Shrimp Basket in Evergreen. Small world that is my second favorite truck stop, right across the interstate there at exit 96, Spirit Truck Stop.

I call those two "mom and pop" truck stops. All the drivers want to stay at the big chain places, Flying J and Pilot etc. I might pull in to that huge Loves at exit 93, and it is full, but I can go 3 miles to exit 96 and get a place to park at the mom n pop. I never ate at the Shrimp Basket, but they had pretty good food at the Spirit Truck Stop. Black mammies in there at 6am cooking sausage and scrambled eggs and grits. Southern cuisine, ya know.
