A backwards, backwoods, inbred, slow talking-slow thinking individual, usually white trash of some sort.
Bestiality is a sport and white lightening is a privilege. A po-dunk packs their toothless mouth with wads of chewing tobacco, masticating it with their cancer ridden gums.
This person can usually be observed at race car tracks, livestock auctions and moon pie factory's. They claim to be a religious preacher, all the while drinking hard liquor, gambling in secret locations and consorting with known prostitutes (more than likely another po dunk family member under the age of 16).
They believe that Dale Earnhardt was a hero/messiah, Hee-Haw is still the number one show on TV and sweet tea is the nectar of the gods ( be advised that to make their type of sweet tea, you seriously add more sugar than tea, which accounts for the high amount of toothless-ness).
Their culture is as rewarding as their language. The higher in the mountains that you go, the more guttural vernacular you will experience. At some points I have noticed that these po dunks can communicate by a combination of burps, farts, grunts and squeaks.
A typical Po-Dunk will use the word SODA's, as in "Your wife gives good head, SODA's my sister"

a phrase for a small or rural town that was popularized by the movie "The French Connection" in 1971, starring Gene Hackman. The film was about a drug smuggling operation that had french connections in mid-state New York. This was all based on actual happenings and the small, rural town known as Poughkeepsie was the actual setting in both real life and in the movie. Countless times in the movie, they used slang phrases such as "podunk" or "pough town" to describe the area.
Today, the phrases have caught on with many individuals and spread throughout many states and towns all across America. By being spread through word of mouth, many people lost the true meaning of podunk and did not even realize it was originally used and first created for Poughkeepsie. The town of Poughkeepsie and city has now become less rural and more developed. Surrounding towns have all been overcrowded by many people coming from the suburbs of NYC due to the ripple effect. Too many people work in the city and live just outside of it, so they move a little bit farther out to escape the high density living. Even though Poughkeepsie may not even count as a podunk town anymore, it should always be credited for inspiring the popular phrase.
Guy 1: "So now that Poughkeepsie is no longer a podunk little town, what else can we call podunk?"

Guy 2: "Well Poughquag isn't that small, but it sure does have a lot of cows, so I guess we can call it podunk."

Guy 1: "Neighboring towns keep the word alive."
