Whooo Boy !!
I understood almost all of those without the explination. I'm not sure if I should laugh or cry !!
Being a southern boy myself - I find that things like this just serve to prove my theory ->
If you can't laugh at yourself, someone else will do it for you
Thanks for the laughs Speedi !!

A blonde hurries into the hospital emergency room late one night with the
tip of her index finger shot off. "How did this happen?" the emergency room
doctor asked her. "Well, I was trying to commit suicide," the blonde replied.
"What?" sputtered the doctor. "You tried to commit suicide by shooting off
the tip of your finger?"
"No, silly!" the blonde said. "First I put the gun to my chest, and I
thought 'I just paid $6000 for these, I'm not shooting myself in the chest.'"
"So, then?" asked the doctor.
"Then I put the gun in my mouth, and I thought, 'I just paid $3000 to get my
teeth straightened, I'm not shooting myself in the mouth.'"
"Then I put the gun to my ear, and I thought 'This is going to make a loud
noise,' so I put my finger in the other ear before I pulled the trigger."
N2DFire, being a Southern girl and a Blonde, I find that it is best to always laugh at yourself before someone else gets the chance. Enjoy Y'all lol

If you get into East Texas, people actually talk like that!
10-06-2000, 10:58 AM #5Speedi120Firehouse.com Guest
They blame talk like that on the South, but the truth is that people from all over the US are prone to such speech. I have talked to people from the North that has never set foot on Southern soil and they talk just like that. I don't think that it is so much where you are from but how much education you have received.

Sorry, the East Texas thing is more of an inside joke. Around here its considered the hillbilly part of the state. Kinda like our version of Arkansas.
I'm not a native Texan -- moved here from Michigan 6 years ago -- so I don't have an accent, since everyone knows that midwestern english is the correct form and everyone else has accents!

I have to agree with N2D - kind of scarey to be able to recognize every one of those!!! Thanx for the entertainment!!

Speed: I am not sure what part of the north you were in, but it sure wasn't the parts i've been in

I have talked to people from Michigan, PA, and Ohio that have talked maybe not as bad as that but pretty close to it. How many of you know what a mater is? Well, this southern girl didn't. And as far as I know that is suppose to be Southern slang. Yes us Southerners tend to be lazy with our speech, yes we tend to take short cuts. Thus you all become Y'all, and tomato becomes mater. But I personally would not live any other place.
