Topic: Things EVERY True Southerner Knows


Someone sent me this and I got a kick out of it and thought I'd pass it on. I'm sure we have more than one true southerner here. Anyone familiar with all of these? Don't worry if you're not even from the U.S. because not everyone from the U.S. will get all of these either

1. The difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit.

2. Pretty much how many fish make up a mess.

3. What general direction cattywumpus is.

4. That "gimme sugar" don't mean pass the sugar.

5. When somebody's "fixin" to do something, it won't be long.

6. The difference between Yankees and damn Yankees.

7. How good a cold grape Nehi and cheese crackers are at a country store.

8. Knows what "Well I Suwannee !!" means.

9. Ain't nobody's biscuits like Grandma's biscuits !!

10. A good dog is worth its weight in gold.

11. Real gravy don't come from the store.

12. When "by and by" is.

13. How to handle their "pot likker".

14. The difference between "pert' near" and "a right far piece".

15. The differences between a redneck, a good ol' boy, and trailer trash.

16. Never to go snipe hunting twice.

17. At one point learned what happens when you swallow tobacco juice.

18. Never to assume that the other car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to turn.

19. You may wear long sleeves, but you should always roll 'em up past the elbows.

20. You should never loan your tools, pick-up, or gun to nobody.

21. A belt serves a greater purpose than holding Daddy's pants up.

22. Rocking chairs and swings are guaranteed stress relievers.

23. Rocking chairs and porch swings with an old person sitting in them are history lessons.

Don't forget, In Texas, a defense for murder is "he needed killin'"
Also loading the dishwasher means getting your wife drunk.
Hotdam is not cursing.
Hidedoo and Howyu mean the same thing.
How much is a buttload, really.
Y'all pretty much includes everyone.
My wife run off with my best buddy, and I miss him.

In deep East Texas, a sentence can sound like one word so you have to listen close before answering.

Catch Jeff Foxworthy's act whenever you can if you like this kind of humor, I guarantee you will enjoy every minute.

What do all these 23 things mean? As a non American I can't get it, but I'm really curious. The y'all and all y'all thing, the yankees and damn yankees one, the by and bye, everything. I know it's asking too much.

In the Southern United States, 'Y'all' is a blended contraction of "You all."

An example would be .. "Do y'all want to go to the store for some coke?"

"Coke" is also the general term for ALL soda in the south, at least in NC and GA. "What kind of coke do you want?" Reply: "A Pepsi"

Yankee is a term for those Americans that live in the Northern United States. My first post was at Ft. Benning, Ga - in Ireland as in most parts of the world, Yankee means "American," regardless of what state he's from. I was often getting into scraps with the local population over calling them "Yanks."
