Things I Learned in the South.....


A possum is a flat animal that sleeps in the middle of the road.



There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 of them live in the South.



There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 of them live in the South, plus a couple no one's seen before.



If it grows, it'll stick ya. If it crawls, it'll bite cha.



Onced and Twiced are words.



It is not a shopping cart, it is a buggy!



Jaw-P? means "Did yall go to the bathroom?"



People actually grow and eat okra.



Fixinto is one word. It means I'm fixing to do that.



There is no such thing as lunch. There is only dinner and then there is supper.



Iced tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're two. We do like a little tea with our sugar.



Backwards and forwards means I know everything about you.



The word jeet is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"



You don't have to wear a watch, because it doesn't matter what time it is, you work until you're done or it's too dark to see.



You dont PUSH buttons, you MASH em.



No, Jew? is a common response to the question, "Did you bring any beer? "



You measure distance in minutes.



You switch from heat to A/C in the same day.



All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect, animal or tree.



You know what a DAWG is.



You carry jumper cables in your car - for your OWN car.



You only own five spices: salt, pepper, Tonys, Tabasco and ketchup.



The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local high school sports and motor sports, and gossip.



You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.



You find 100 degrees Fahrenheit a bit warm.



You know all four seasons: Almost summer, summer, still summer, and Christmas.



Going to Wal-Mart is a favorite pastime known as goin Wal-Martin or off to Wally World.



You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good chicken stew weather. ------OH! YEAH ! ! ! !



Fried catfish is the other white meat.



We don't need no dang Driver's Ed. If our mama says we can drive, we can drive, dag-nabbit.



You understand these jokes and forward them to your Southern friends and those who just wish they were from the SOUTH.

Born in Baton Rouge here and you for sure have to be from the south, know someone from the south or visited to know what this means.

One addition too - for Thanksgiving, you dont roast your turkey. You deep fry it out in the back yard.

When I was younger, and Mark will attest to this, my family was driving through AL and my parents had me convinced that the exploded truck tires on the side of the road were from the Alligators that would come up to the highway to shed their skin.

4 people in a tiny 4 person car driving from Baton Rouge to Tallahassee in the summer without A/C.
