THINGS I HAVE LEARNED FROM LIVING IN THE SOUTH
*Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.
*There are 5,000 types of snakes on earth and 4,998 live in The South
*There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in The South, plus a couple no one's seen before.

*Onced and Twiced are words.
*It is not a shopping cart; it is a buggy.
*People actually grow and eat okra.
*'Fixinto' is one word.
*There is no such thing as 'lunch.' There is only dinner and then supper.

*Backwards and forwards means 'I know everything about you.'
*DJeet is actually a phrase meaning 'Did you eat?'

*The first day of deer season is a national holiday.
*100 degrees Fahrenheit is 'a little warm.'
*We have four seasons: Almost Summer, Summer, still Summer and Christmas.
*Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time known as 'goin' Wal-martin' or off to 'Wally World.'
*A cool snap (below 70 degrees) is good pinto-bean weather.
*A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or pop. . . . it's a Coke, regardless
of brand or flavor. Example: 'What kinda coke you want?'
*Fried catfish is the other white meat.
*We don't need no stinking driver's ed . . . if our mama says we can drive, we can

EVERYONE can't be from the south; it takes luck.

A fleeing Taliban, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw something far off in the distance. Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the oasis, only to find a little old Jewish man at a small stand, selling ties.
The Taliban asked, 'Do you have water?'
The Jewish man replied, 'I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5.'
The Taliban shouted, 'Idiot! I do not need an over-priced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first!
'OK,' said the old Jewish man, 'it does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a lovely restaurant. It has all the ice cold water you need.
Muttering, the Taliban staggered away over the hill. Several hours later he staggered back, almost dead.
"Your #*&@^ brother won't let me in without a tie!"
After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their
holiday away from school. One child wrote the following:
"We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They
used to live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they
moved to Florida.
"Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like
grass. They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags because
they don't know who they are anymore.
"They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got
it fixed because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they
don't do them very well. There is a swimming pool too, but they all
jump up and down in it with hats on.
"At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in
it. He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out,
and go cruising in their golf carts.
"Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And, they eat the same thing
every night --- early birds. Some of the people can't get out past the
man in the doll house. The ones who do get out, bring food back to the
wrecked center for pot luck.
"My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his
retardment and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday
too. When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll
house. Then I will let people out, so they can visit their
omigoodness, queenb, how did you find that picture of me???? :eek
