Southern Sayings Are Very Unique!

Facebook: Texas

Do you have some weird southern sayings in your family?  Maybe you only realize they’re a tad weird when you say them around non-family members and they look at you funny.

I grew up in Nebraska, and although my grandma isn’t the least bit southern, she is a little left of center when it comes to the things that come out of her mouth!  She always use to say, “I don’t know him from Adam.”  And I would ask who “Adam” is and she just looked at me like I had three heads and laughed at me.  That still confuses me.  She’d also say things like, “hotter than a two dollar pistol,” “well ain’t that just a peach,” and Lord only knows what else.

She’s also an expert at inserting the word “catawampus” into sentences in the most random places, and that’s one thing she shares in common with folks in the south. That word is included on the list of “13 Southern Sayings That The Rest of America Won’t Understand.”

What are some others?  See if you relate.

“She was madder than a wet hen.”  Perhaps you’ve said that about your wife a few times.

“He could eat corn through a picket fence.”  That’s not weird, that’s talent!

“You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.”  Hmm.  Another pointless one; my grandpa used to say, “It takes an awful big cow to weight two thousand pounds.”  Yes, it does.  Why do people say that and what does it mean?  Who knows!

May you be as peaceful as a dry hen and eat lost of great corn on a regular ole plate. Have a great weekend!
