Rural, relatively uneducated female natives of the Appalachian Mountains, hilljills are the female equivalents of hilljacks
. Hilljills often: (1) have children while teenagers by several fathers; (2) are unemployed or underemployed; (3) usually overweight (always past the age of 20); (4) collecting some form of government stipend or welfare or living with someone who does; and (5) is knowledgable about (i) daytime TV, (ii) C&W crooners, (iii) where to find the cheapest smokes
, and (iv) using her kids as an excuse to avoid real work.
After picking up her welfare check at noon, Haley the HillJill took her three children through the drive-through beer barn in her birdshit-encrusted '97 V6 Mustang to pick up Schlitz and Marlboroughs so that her latest boyfriend wouldn't beat her up again back in the trailer park.
