Southern Thinking


The owner of a golf course was confused about paying an invoice, so he decidedto ask his secretary for some mathematical help. He called her into his officeand said,

"You graduated from the University of Georgia and I need some help.

If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how muchwould you take off?"

The secretary thought a moment, and then replied,"Everything but my earrings."



A group of Alabama friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day.

That night, one of the hunters returned alone,

staggering under the weight of an eight-pointbuck

"Where's Henry?" the others asked..

"Henry had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up thetrail,"

the successful hunter replied.

"You left Henry laying out there and carried the deer back?" they inquired.

"A tough call," nodded the hunter."But I figured no one is going to steal Henry!"



A senior at Louisiana was overheard saying...

"When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Louisiana ."

When asked why, he replied

"he'd rather be in Louisiana because everything happens in Louisiana

20 years later than in the rest of the civilized world.



The young man from Mississippi came running into the store and said to his buddy,

"Bubba, somebody just stole your pickup truck from the parking lot!"

Bubba replied, "Did you see who it was?"

The young man answered, "I couldn't tell, but I got the license number."



A Tennessee State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-65.

The trooper asked, "Got any ID?"

The driver replied, "Bout whut?"


North Carolina :

A man in North Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the road,

and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it.

Then he got back in the car to wait.

A passerby studied the scene as he drove by and was so curious

he turned aroundand went back.

He asked the fellow what the problem was.

The man replied, "I have a flat tire."

The passerby asked, "But what's with the flowers?"

The man responded,

"When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back.

I never did understand it either."


And My favorite:

You can say what you want about the South,

But you never hear of anyone retiring and moving North...
