"Down Yonder" Luke Barker says... Rotten Eggs

Down Yonder - Luke Barker says...      Some o' them who are tryin' t' handle th' political machine had better learn somethin' 'bout drivin' first.
     Th' robbers thet broke in an' stoled a crate o' eggs from Hy Watheys store met that equal, they were rotten eggs.

Translation for city slickers (non-hill people):

     Those who are trying to handle the political machine should learn how to drive first.
     The robbers that broke in Hy Watheys store and stole a crate of eggs, met their equal, they were rotten eggs.
