clean cutthroat and dried

A car-rental agent (functional equivalent of a used-car salesman? not quite, I guess) describes himself to my sister:

… trying to tell me that despite his suit and tie, he really is a Batesburg redneck at heart. He said, “I’m not really the clean cutthroat and dried person people think I am!”

*If the human mind were simple enough for us to understand,
we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .

(Possible Corollary: it is, and we are .)
