Quinton and I had lots of things to do today, so I didn't blog. I'll just post something Catfish sent me via email:
Blue Necks are Northerners -- the opposite of Rednecks. Because of Redneck jokes, here are some takes on how Southern folks look at Northerners (or how Northerners sometimes think of themselves;)
YOU JUST MIGHT BE A BLUENECK IF...
...Instead of referring to two or more people as "Y'all," you call them "you guys," even if both of them are women.
...You think barbecue is a verb meaning "to cook outside."
...You think Heinz Ketchup is really SPICY.
...You would never stop to buy something somebody was cooking on the side of the road. (e.g., boiled peanuts) .
