Jackson, Mississippi (CNN) - Add a new joke to Jeff Foxworthy's stand-up routine. . . on the subject of Mitt Romney's invitation to go hunting.
Earlier in the day, Foxworthy appeared at Romney's side at a campaign event in Mobile, Alabama, where the blue-collar comedian threw his support behind the former Massachusetts governor.

Romney quipped that he could use Foxworthy's help.
"I am looking forward to going there and hunting with you sometime. And you can actually show me which end of the rifle to point," Romney joked in Mobile.
Asked by CNN whether he would take Romney up on the offer, Foxworthy had a one-liner of his own.
"That sounds even more dangerous than Cheney if you ask me. We may start with a BB gun and work our way up to a rifle," Foxworthy joked just after an event where he appeared on Romney's behalf in Jackson.
In the days leading up to Tuesday's primaries in Mississippi and Alabama, Romney has shared his stories of exposure to Southern culture, revealing that he now enjoys "cheesy grits" and saying "y'all."
Foxworthy said he teased the GOP contender about the revelations, telling reporters the comments sound slightly inauthentic coming from a New Englander.
"But it kind of makes me laugh. I told him 'I gotta spend a day with you and teach you how to speak Southern a little bit,'" Foxworthy said.
Then the comedian got serious.
"We don't elect presidents on personality. We did that in 2008," Foxworthy said.
