    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!

    Jawl-P? means, Did you all go​
    to the bathroom?

    People actually grow,​
    eat and like okra.

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

    There is no such thing as lunch. ​
    There is only dinner and then ​
    there's 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.
    It is referred to as ​
    the Wine of the South.

    Backwards and forwards means I know ​
    everything about you.

    The word jeet is actually a question 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 don't PUSH buttons, ​
    you MASH em.

    Ya'll is singular. ​
    All ya'll is plural.

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

    You carry jumper cables in your car, ​
    for your OWN car.
    Why else would you carry them?

    The local papers cover national and ​
    international news on one page, but ​
    require 6 pages for​
    local high school sports, ​
    the motor sports, and gossip.​
    Don't forget the obits.

    Everyone you meet is a Honey, Sugar, ​
    Miss (first name) or Mr.(first name)

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

    You know what a hissy fit is.​
    And you know how to pitch one.

    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!!!​

    A Yankee is anybody from the North when in the South.
    A damn Yankee is one that's driving a U-Haul.

    Growing up in the mountains of VA and GA, it wasn't 'till I moved away that I figured out that "DamnYankee" was actually TWO WORDS! Who knew?:whistling:

    I moved away from the south when I was 19. Now that I'm middle-aged, the southern word "usetacould" applies so much more to me...

    "Fer" is a distance of measurement in Georgia. If something is "Two fers down the road" You drive as fer as you can see once't, then as fer as you can see twice't. And "lunch" only comes in paper sacks. If you sit down at a table to eat it, it's dinner.

    Everything sugary that comes in a can or bottle is "a Coke".

    EVERYONE is a "ma'am" or a "sir".

    DON'T wear a hat indoors unless you want folks to ask you if your head's cold.

    Cornbread does NOT have sugar in it.

    And you will never hear a Southerner say "Duct tape won't fix that".

    Now I got a hankerin' for a bag of bolled peanuts and a Coke (not a typo).

    A Coke and a pack of crackers is a suitable breakfast.

    You can say something mean about someone as long as you follow it with 'Bless his/her heart'.

    That Brad Johnson, he's as dumb as a bag of hammers, bless his heart.
