They probably used one of those receivers that everyone welds under their rear bumper to install bike racks on. A chunk of 2 x 2 square stock and a ball coupler from TSC and your good to go.

Can you say REDNECK that many times?

Humm, maybe it's just a runaway toad?

Or maybe they might just have the wieght distribution just a little off.
