Southern Expressions That Will Crack You Up!

Okay, this goes so well with my earlier post of Southern Discomfort that I have to reblog it. Thanks, Joyfultobeeblogs for bringing it to my attention.

I saw this video today and have to share it. Not all Southern women are the same but these ladies are saying a lot of the expressions I have heard from Louisiana to North Carolina. We don’t all talk like these women but most of us have used some of their expressions in our life. This and other videos of the same name were first shown on the Southern Women Channel. I just wanted to share them with you.

You will laugh!

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    Dead on and hilarious! We do say all those things and many more besides down here in the South. Now if she’d just post similar videos from the Eastern seaboard, the Midwest, the Northwest, the Pacific Northwest, and Southern California. I’m sure every geographic region has humorous colloquialisms.

        Eh hem. :::stands up straighter::: I’m a northern girl. If anything I have a bit of a California accent, so I’ve been told, and I don’t know what that means. I’ve lived in the South, and bordering the South, enough to have heard what was said on the video. Enough that I sometimes use the very useful y’all. So it is creek. Stream. And there ain’t no duuurned hollers.

          No. No hollers in “South” Dakota, either, although my mother had a few in her past in Missouri. I am so sorry for taking it for granted that your knowledge of southern vernacular branded you a native of that region. I know we northern girls have our pride as well!!!

            Odessa native pride themselves on Odessa being the place where the concept of humor was invented! Ovid was exiled to the Northern part of Black Sea and spent the first two weeks of his exile in a little village where Odessa now stands. There he started “Metamorphoses” “Letters from the Black Sea” were written later, when he settled in what is now Romania.
            The most famous Russian satirists, comedians, and humorous songwriters originated from Odessa, as well as an actual annual holiday of humor “Humorina” – appropriately on April 1st.
