Jed was a Beverly Hillbilly, but whenever he had something on his mind, he would sit on the curbstone of his Hollywood mansion and whittle, the way he used to do back in the swamp. When he came up with the answer, Jed would exclaim, “Welllllll, doggies!”

Jed had the wisdom to his time. He was honest. He never denied his actions. He didn’t make fun of people. Jed never tweeted.
