:I am originally from southeastern Ohio, and grew up in the 50's. My brothers and sisters grew up in the 30's and 40's. We all have used the term "drunker than Cooter Brown". I have lived in south Texas for the last 10 years, and recently the phrase came up in conversation from a native Texan. We got to wondering where the term came from. Apparently, it is a widely used phrase, with everyone thinking it is local. I grew up thinking it was a real man local to southeastern Ohio.
