In 1980, John O'Neal wrote the first of his five plays featuring the folk character named Junebug Jabbo Jones. The play called, "Don't Start Me To Talking or I'll Tell Everything I Know: Sayings and Writings from the Life of Junebug Jabbo Jones," featured Jones as a representation of the, "wisdom of ordinary Black folk." O'Neal toured "Don't Start Me To Talking" throughout the South.
