Talking The South

To any southerners, please don't be offended, I was born and raised in Texas. And I just thought this was hilarious.


.

The North has coffee houses, The South has Waffle Houses.

The North has dating

services, The South has
family reunions.

The North has double last names, The South has double first names.

The North has Cream of Wheat, The South has grits.

The North has green salads, The South has collard greens

The North has lobsters, The South has crawfish.

FOR NORTHERNERS COMING SOUTH


In the South: If you run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in a four-wheel drive pickup truck with a tow chain will be along shortly. Don't try to help them, just stay out of their way. This is what they live for.

Don't be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same store. Do not buy food

at this store.

Remember, "y'all" is

singular, "all y'all" is plural, and "all y'all's" is plural possessive.

Get used to hearing "You

ain't from round here, are ya?"

Save all manner of bacon grease. You will be i

nstructed later on how to
use it.

Don't be worried at not understanding what people are saying. They can't understand you either.

The first Southern statement to creep into a transplanted Northerner's vocabulary is

the adjective "big'ol," truck
or big'ol" boy. Most Northerners begin their Southern-influenced dialect this way.
All of them are in denial
about it.

The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper.

Be advised that "He needed killin" is a valid defense here.

If you hear a Southerner exclaim, "Hey, y'all, watch this," you should stay out of the way. These are likely to

be the last words he'll ever say.

If there is the prediction of

the slightest chance of even the smallest accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store. It doesn't matter whether you need anything
or not. You just have to go there.(this is so true!!!!!I think they are giving stuff away..lol)

Do not be surprised to find that 10-year-olds own their own shotguns, they are proficient marksmen, and their mammas taught them how to aim.

In the South, we have found that the best way to grow a lush green lawn is to pour gravel on it and call it a driveway.


Have a good day!

Danger?
Most of the stuff here is VERY familiar to me Ya'll. I am just able to see something like this, and make fun of myself and the way that my family and a lot of families that I know and love are. I love being a Texan. And I love texas jokes. I would never post anything insulting, these are just fun stuff. If I have insulted anyone, I'm very sorry. But being from Texas, I know that we have some strange ways of doing things. And not all of what is on here, pertains to ALL Southerners. It's just funny. So, I won't post anymore jokes like this. I'm truly sorry.

Texasgirl, I love it!! I've lived in SC all my life & all these really hit home & make me laugh!! Especially the one about the 10yr. olds & shotguns, my 8 yr. old son got his first 22 for Christmas year before last. He hasen't gotten to shoot it yet bacause we haven't lined up the scope yet, but I'm pretty darn good with the thing!

She also left out "over yonder" Run Out. "I'm goin' over yonder to see my cousin." There's also "down the road a piece". That could mean anything from a 1/4 of a mile to 10 or 20 miles away!

I have that same list, and maybe one or two more. You left out a couple, though:

-If you're driving down the road, and come across an old, beat-up pickup truck driving 25 MPH straddling the centerline, don't worry. The driver learned how to drive on a combine or a tractor, and this is the proper speed and position for such a vehicle.

-Don't think that just because you moved down South, and had some kids, that Southerners will accept your kids as Southerners. For example, if the cat had a litter of kittens in the oven, we wouldn't call 'em biscuits, now, would we?

FYI, I HAVE driven a tractor.

Thanks you guys, I was horrified that I had offended anyone. I LOVE southern or Texas jokes, as long as they aren't (notice I didn't use ain't) down right insulting.
Have a great day, everyone!!
