    Southernisms


    Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit."


    It's been hotter'n a goat's butt in a pepper patch."


    He fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down."


    Have a cup of coffee--it's already been 'saucered and blowed.'"


    She's so stuck up, she'd drown in a rainstorm."


    It's so dry, the trees are bribing the dogs."


    My cow died last night, so I don't need your bull."


    He's as country as cornflakes."


    This is gooder'n grits."


    Busier than a cat covering crap on a marble floor."


    If things get any better, I may have to hire someone to help me enjoy it."


    I'm bout as nervous as a long tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs."


    Busy as a moth in a mitten."


    Happy as a clam at high tide."



    Notice to Northerners moving to the South:

    Save all manner of bacon grease. You will be instructed on how to use it shortly.


    Just because you can drive on snow and ice does not mean Southerners can. Stay home the two days of the year it snows.


    If you do run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in the cab of a four-wheel pick-up with a 12-pack of beer and 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.


    You can ask Southerners for directions, but unless you already know the positions of key hills, trees and rocks, you're better off trying to find it yourself.


    Remember: Y'all is singular. All y'all is plural. All y'all's is plural possessive.


    Get used to hearing, "You ain't from around here, are you?"


    Don't be worried that you don't understand anyone. They don't understand you, either.

    The first Southern _expression to creep into a transplanted

    Northerner's vocabulary is the adjective "big ol", as in "big ol truck", or "big ol boy". "Fixin'" (as in "I'm fixin' to go to the store") is 2nd, and "Y'all" is 3rd.


    As you are cursing the person driving 15 mph in a 55 mph zone directly in the middle of the road, remember: ALL Southern folks learned to drive on a John Deere, and this is the proper speed and lane position for that vehicle.


    If you hear a Southerner exclaim, "Hey, y'all, watch this!", get out of his way. These are likely the last words he will ever say, or worse still, that you will ever hear.


    Most Southerners do not use turn signals; they ignore those who do. In fact, if you see a signal blinking on a car with a Southern license plate, you may rest assured that it was already turned on when the car was purchased.


    If it can't be fried in bacon grease, it ain't worth cooking, let alone eating.


    The wardrobe you always brought out in Sept can wait until Dec.


    If there is the prediction of the slightest chance of even the most minuscule
    accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store.
    It does not matter if you need anything from the store. It is just something
    you're supposed to do.


    Satellite dishes are very popular in the South. When you purchase one, it is positioned directly in front of the house. This is logical, bearing in mind that the dish cost considerably more than the house and should, therefore, be prominently displayed.


    Be advised that in the South, "He needed killin'" is a valid defense.

    Two of my favorites that my mother-in-law uses.

    1. "It's hotter than a bitch wolf in here." I have no idea where in the hell she got that one! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    2. "It ain't no count." Used to describe something that isn't very good. Example: You eat a piece of cake that is marginal at best. You would say, "That cake ain't no count."
