I think it was Jeff Foxworthy (but don't quote me on that, LOL) who said that in the south you can say anything you want to anyone as long as you end it with "Bless your/his/her heart!" "Is this your new baby Mrs. Smith? Oh, he looks just like a shriveled up little monkey, bless his little heart!"

Babies can look like shrivelled up little monkeys. I finally found out what to say when the proud parent shows you a picture of a butt ugly baby: "precious".
