    I remember a phase used in the military. I don't know the origin of it so if someone does...let me know.

    when somone fouled something up others would say, in describing the screwup "So and So totally screwed the pooch"

    Again, this is most likely just a Southern thing, but when you're talking to just a couple of people, you use the word "y'all". When it's a larger group of people, you use "all of y'all" (or, more likely, "all y'all")...

    Having married into a family of Texans, I can vouch for Perc. Though not as well as our huge Dallas area contingent, I'm sure.

    My wife used to work for the American Humane Association. That phrase would get me a cross look at home.

    A recent development: "Coffee need now" meaning:

    If I say it: Make tea
    If Sar says it: Make Bouillon
    If Marc says it: Make a Martini
