Weekend Wisecrack

As a Yankee transplanted to the South, I have had numerous big ol' belly laughs over some of the thangs these Southerners say and do (and I'm sure they get just as many laughs at my expense). When three different people sent me the following video thinkin' it was blog worthy, I just knew I had to share it with all of you. One of the gals is even a born and bred refined southern lady and she can even find the humor in some of this quintessential southern shit that people say 'round these parts. ENJOY:

  1. ah, brings me back to the days of visiting the step-relatives in 'Bama and the time we spent living in Arkansas. It's one crazy language they speak down there. And so easy to pick up. I'll be saying ya'll the rest of the day now!

  2. I am a midwesterner by birth but have lived in the south longer than there. First time I was asked if I wanted a "draannnnnk" at 10am I didn't know it meant a soft drink.....I was ready to party.

  3. Thanks for always making me LMFAO! My daughter (from Chicago) went to Clemson for a year and a half and when we would visit her, we'd see and hear all the this! She's safely in the Midwest now but Hoosiers are a different reed as well. S%#T Chicagoans say s pretty funny too. Happy Saturday.

  5. I have to imagine how strange we sound going to northern/western grocery store looking for "buggies".

  6. As a native San Franciscan I find it all so strange that people actually talk like that. BUT, I do have a brother who lives in Alabama and has for years - he has raised his family there. I went back to see them, and oh my, they all talk like that. I can't understand them. I keep saying, "Huh?" and asking them to repeat it. I hate to be rude but I can't understand them - they talk so fast.

  7. Oh now that was funny. Reminded me of 'Steel Magnolias' (I love that movie). I have a Utah accent and say many strange things that others from other parts have said 'where you from?' It is all hilarious.
