“A SOUTHERNER TALKS MUSIC.”   -MARK TWAIN

I will continue to add to this list. I won’t tell you where I heard anything because it just wouldn’t be polite. Y’all come back now, ya hear?

“Bless her heart, she can’t help being ugly, but she could’ve stayed home.”

“That boy ain’t right.”

“Her eyes look like two holes burned in a blanket.”

“Just because their kids were born here don’t make them Southern. My dog sleeps in the garage. It don’t make him a truck.”

“You’re not really married ’till you send out that last thank you note.”

“Are you trying to grow potatoes behind those ears?”

“I’ve gotta see a man about a dog.” ( have to use the restroom)

“Are you catching flies?” (Don’t walk around with your mouth open.)

“When God handed out brains, he was standing behind the door.”

“Were you raised in a barn?” (referring to manners)

“If you swallow those seeds, watermelons will grow out your ears.”

“You could serve TEA off that butt!”

“He’s old as dirt.”

“Don’t bite your tongue. You’ll poison yourself.”

“No hill for a stepper.”

“You are working my last nerve.”

“I don’t have a dog in that hunt.”

“I have a bone to pick with you.”

“Gooder than grits.”

“Fuller than two ticks on a hound dog.”

“I feel like I’ve been shot at and missed and pooped on and and hit.”

“All hat, no cattle.”

“She told him how the cow ate the cabbage.”

“Everything he’s got is on the showroom floor.”

“You don’t put your money in the front window.”

“She’s a pistol!”

“He’s a hoot!”

    Nest time we’re at a social function together, you’d best not be whispering the “God bless her…” about me.

    ‘Tis a hilarious saying which I hope to use at some point.

    Too funny.

      I remember someone telling me that ever since she had moved to the South, people had been blessing her left, right and sideways. Bless her heart, she didn’t have a clue.

    I’ve got three for you…

    “The bent nail doesn’t get hammered.”

    “Quit p!@#$%g on my shoes and trying to tell me that it’s raining.”

    “Don’t put a bell on it if it ain’t a ringer”
