More on the South. Might be a repeat.

I have learned the following while living in the
Southern part of the USA.

1. Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their
feet in the air

2. There are 5,000 types of snakes and 4,998 live in
the South.

3. There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live
in South plus a couple no one's seen before.

7. If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.

8. Onced and twiced are words.

9. It is not a shopping cart; it is a buggy.

10. Fire ants consider your flesh as a picnic.

11. People actually grow and eat okra.

12. Fixinto is one word.

13. There is no such thing as "lunch". There is only
dinner and then there is supper.

14. Ice tea is appropriate for all meals and you start
drinking it when you're two. We do like a little tea
with our sugar!

15. Backards and for'ards means "I know everything
about you."

16. Jeet? is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"

17. 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.

18. You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH them.
