Thursday Thirteen and then some ...
Edition #31

The 'Rules of the South' are as follows!!!

1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.

2. Turn your cap right, your head isn't crooked.

3. Let's get this straight; it's called a "gravel road." I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.

4. They are cattle. That's why they smell to you. They smell like money to us. Get over it. Don't like it? I-40 goes east and west, I-65 goes north and south. Pick one.

5. So you have a $60,000 car. We're impressed. We have $250,000 cotton strippers that are driven only 3 weeks a year.

6. So every person in the south waves. It's called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

7. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of doves are coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

8. Yeah, we eat catfish & crawfish. You really want sushi & caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop.

9. The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November.

10. We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless of age.

11. No, there's no "vegetarian special" on the menu - order steak. Or you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham & turkey.

12. When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats, vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup! Oh, yeah.... We don't care what you folks in Cincinnati call that stuff you eat... IT AIN’T REAL CHILI!!

13. You bring "coke" into my house, it better be brown, wet and served over ice. You bring "Mary Jane" into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.

14. College and High School Football is as important here as the Lakers and the Knicks, and a dang site more fun to watch.

15. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards -- it spooks the fish.

16. Colleges? We have them all over. We have State Universities , Universities, and Vo-techs. They come outta there with an education plus a love for God and country, and they still wave at everybody when they come home for the holidays.

17. We have more folks in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. So don't mess with us. If you do, you will get whipped by the best.

18. The south is the greatest!! If you are from the south you are part of the best people in the USA !!

Love the list.....my hubby is from a small town in Florida near the border of Georgia....and I have heard many of these things myself. He still is flabbergasted that when he sees my mom she doesn't want a hug! Poor guy!

I spent a good deal of time in Biloxi, Mississippi when I was in the Air Force and in training at Keesler Air Force Base so even though I'm a Northerner, I've had the privilege of living amongst the fine people of the South.

And never once did this Yankee complain about the down-home cookin' ya'll have down there! We learn a thing or two up here about that!


Blogger the108 said ... (6/14/2007 7:35 PM) :

Not participating, but had to comment.

Works for me...I understand every single point. You go girl.


Blogger Travis said ... (6/14/2007 8:49 PM) : 

20. In the south, the phrase "No I couldn't eat another bite" actually translates to "Gimme another slice of that pie".


Blogger Starrlight said ... (6/14/2007 9:58 PM) : 

Ahh the South. I so can not wait to move there!


Blogger julie said ... (6/14/2007 11:05 PM) :
