Stuff I Heard Today...

...damn... sometimes, I just LOVE living in the South... and am PROUD to be a Southerner... here are a few snippets of Wisdom I overheard today during my various and sundry travels...

..."He was busier than a three-peckered puppy"... I have absolutely no idea what this means... so, don't bother asking...

..."He's his father's Son... kind hearted, but half retarded".... heh.. I know the kid.. AND the Father... and, yep... that was putting it mildly....

..."people around here?... well, they can be broke down into a few different categories... Creekers, Hillbillies, Knobites, Rednecks, Townies, and Foriegners"... in a simplistic way, it pretty much sums up the denizens of rural East Tennessee... present company included, of course...

Oh, come on Eric! Don't you think you'd be a little busy if YOU had three peckers?

I love southern sayings - - One of my friends is a southern from the deep south and she once said to me:

'Happy as a dead pig in the sunshine.'

I had no idea what it meant and asked - - she said it means not to worry about what is going on - - to let conflict slide right by without worrying about a thing.

I personally still don't get how being a dead pig in the sun wouldn't be something to stress about - - but then who knows! *heh*

Not knowing any better, if I lived up there I believe I would be a Knobite.

Reminds me of my post on colloquialisms.

...awesome post, Velociman... but, knobite, my friend, you ain't... you are a Creeker... or a Townie... Knobites make the toothless, Squealing Grinner from The Movie That Shall Not Be Named look like a friggin GQ Model....

UptownGirl: Think about it. If YOU were a dead pig in the sunshine, would you be stressed?

the best line from the Billy Crystal movie "City Slickers" was by the dude ranch owner,".....I'd be happier than a puppy with two peters."

and one more of my favorites describing a busy work day," I was busier than a pair of jumper cables at a Mexican wedding."
