    Southern girls know their prime real estate:

    The Beauty Salon
    Southern girls know the 3 deadly sins:
    Having bad hair and nails
    Having bad manners
    Cooking bad food

    Only a Southerner knows the difference between a hissie fit and a conniption fit, and that you don't "HAVE" them,
    you "PITCH" them.
    Only a Southerner knows how many fish, collard greens, turnip greens, peas, beans, etc., make up "a mess."

    Only a Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction of "yonder."

    Only a Southerner knows exactly how long"directly" is, as in:
    "Going to town, be back directly."
    Even Southern babies know that "Gimme some sugar" is not a request for the white, granular, sweet substance that sits in a pretty little bowl in the middle of the table.

    All Southerners know exactly when "by and by" is. They might not use the term, but they know the concept well.

    Only a Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for a neighbor who's got trouble is a plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad.
    If the neighbor's trouble is a real crisis, they also know to add a large banana puddin'!

    Only Southerners grow up knowing the difference between "right near" and
    "a right fer piece." They also know that"just down the road" can be 1 mile or 20.

    Only a Southerner both knows and understands the difference between a redneck, a good ol' boy, and po' white trash.

    No true Southerner would ever assume that the car with the flashing turn signal is actually going to make a turn.

    A Southerner knows that "fixin" can be used as a noun, a verb, or an adverb.

    Only Southerners make friends while standing in lines, .... and when we're "in line", we talk to everybody!

    Put 100 Southerners in a room and half of them will discover they're related, even if only by marriage.

    In the South, y'all is singular, all y'all is plural.

    Southerners know grits come from corn and how to eat them.

    Every Southerner knows tomatoes with eggs, bacon, grits, biscuits, and coffee are perfectly wonderful; that red eye gravy is also a breakfast food; and that fried green tomatoes are not a breakfast food.

    When you hear someone say, "Well, I caught myself lookin'," you know you are in the presence of a genuine Southerner!

    Only true Southerners say "sweet tea" and"sweet milk." Sweet tea indicates the need for sugar and lots of it -- we do not like our tea unsweetened. "Sweet milk" means you don't want buttermilk.

    And a true Southerner knows you don't scream obscenities at little old ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway.
    You just say,"Bless her heart"... and go your own way.

    To those of you who are still a little embarrassed by your Southerness: Take two tent revivals and a dose of sausage gravy and call me in the morning, bless your heart!

    And to those of you who are still having a hard time understanding all this Southern stuff.....bless your hearts, I hear they're fixin' to have classes on Southernness as a second language!

    Southern girls know men may come and go, but friends are fahevah !

    Now Shugah, send this to someone who was raised in the South or wish they had been! If you're a Northern transplant, bless your little heart, fake it. We know you got here as fast as you could.

    I like the barnyard pimp thing, Those roosters are the most untruthful birds I ever observed. They will scratch at the ground, cluck and cluck, the old hen will lean forward put her head to the ground to see what the rooster is making all the noise about and then WHAM, that old rooster will grab a hold of that hens neck and everyone knows "The rest of the story" to quote the late great Paul Harvey.

    Oh another Southern favorite is Lima Beans and rice.

    When Southern folk answer the phone they say, "Hey", and they end every sentence with the word "thare".
