    THINGS I LEARNED LIVING IN THE SOUTH
    1. A possum is a flat animal that sleeps in the middle of the road.
    2. There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 of them live in the South.
    3. There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 of them live in the South, plus a couple no one's seen before.
    4. If it grows, it'll stick ya. If it crawls, it'll bite cha.
    5. Onced and Twiced are words.
    6. It is not a shopping cart, it is a buggy!
    7. Jawl-P? means: Did you all go to the bathroom?
    8. People actually grow, eat and like okra.
    9. Fixinto is one word. It means I'm going to do something.
    10. There is no such thing as lunch. There is only dinner and then there's supper.
    11. 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.
    12. Backwards and forwards means I know everything about you.
    13. The word jeet is actually a question meaning, 'Did you eat?'
    14. 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.
    15. You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH em.
    16. Y'all is singular. All Y'all is plural.
    17. All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect, or animal.
    18. You carry jumper cables in your car for your OWN car.
    19. You only own five spices: salt, pepper, mustard, Tabasco and ketchup.
    20. 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.
    21. Everyone you meet is a Honey, Sugar, Miss (first name) or Mr (first name)
    22. You think that the first day of deer season is a national holiday.
    23. You know what a hissy fit is..
    24. Fried catfish is the other white meat.
    25. We don't need no dang Driver's Ed. If our mama says we can drive, we can drive!!!
    26. You understand these jokes and forward them to your Southern friends and those who just wish they were from the SOUTH.
    AND one more:
    27. Why did the chicken cross the road? To show that stupid possum that it CAN be done!

    there is no more south. too many people moving around from everywhere else has made usa lose its classic demographic cultures.

    True is some areas like the large cities such as Atlanta , Miami, Memphis etc. Those cesspools have been infested and corrupted to no end by carpet bagger politicians and liberal morons from places like Commiefornia ! The rural south is STILL a hold out as far as culture goes.

    Denver was LOST a long time ago. It is a cesspool of lib tards and lefty snowflakes now. But it's creeping in a lot of places ! Look at Dallas ! It's going down the tubes because of liberal SCUM ! God bless Texas but only the Real Texans like yourself (not imported liberal Morons).

    the rural area is losing out to smart phone addicts. instead of leaning on a shovel, they are sitting on fence posts texting.
