Never heard of Harvey Updyke. Have heard of John Updike, who was a celebrated author etc. And I didn't know updyke was a slang term for redneck white trash with major chip on shoulder issues.

Which was? :P
updyke

An updyke is a type of white trash redneck that is particularly unsuccessful in life, has an inferiority complex and is very angry and bitter towards others. Most have little formal education and are prone to violence and profane or derogatory language that is used to make the updyke feel better about himself or herself. The term updyke is largely regional in use with high concentrations in the Southeastern United States, particularly the state of Alabama, as it most often refers to fans of the University of Alabama’s athletic teams.

The origin of the word is from a man's name, Harvey Updyke, who became so upset that Alabama’s football team lost to Auburn University that he vandalized Auburn’s campus, poisoning two 130-year old oak trees that were a symbol of the school’s traditions.

The word updyke is most often used as a noun, but can also be used as other parts of speech.

Don't be an updyke, vandalism is not cool.

Did you see all of those updykes at the Alabama football game?

I can't believe you just said you hate a university, you didn't even graduate from high school. You're such an updyke.
Not to be confused with:
updike

A man who has retained an obsession with sex well into his dotage, with a creepy effect on others.

Don't look at my daughter that way you fucking old updike!
However, it's entirely possible that an updyke will one day become an updike.
