Did you ever hear of a Blue Neck?
Bluenecks ARE NORTHERNERS... I'm sure that you have heard all the Redneck jokes. Now here are some takes on how Southern folks look at our Northern cousins:
YOU JUST MIGHT BE A BLUE NECK IF:
You think barbecue is a verb meaning, "to cook outside."
You think Heinz Ketchup is REALLY spicy!
You don't have any problems pronouncing "Worcestershire sauce" correctly.
For breakfast, you would prefer potato au gratin [awh....what? ] to grits.
You have never, ever eaten okra.....fried or boiled.
You eat fried chicken with a knife and fork.
You have no idea what a polecat is.
You don't see anything wrong with putting a sweater on a poodle.
You don't have bangs.
You would rather vacation at Martha's Vineyard than Six Flags.
Instead of referring to two or more people as " ya'll," you call them "you guys," even if both of them are women.
You have never planned your summer vacation around a gun-n-knife show.
You don't have at least one can of WD-40 somewhere around the house.
You don't have any hats in your closet that advertise feed stores.
You call binoculars opera glasses.
You can't spit out the car window without pulling over to the side of the road and....Stopping!
You don't know anyone with at least two first names (i.e., Joe Bob, Bizzy Bee Bob, Faye Ellen, Dragon Fly, Derek Ray, Mary Jo, River Rat, Bubba Dean, Joe Dan, Ted Joe, Mary Alice).
You don't have doilies, and you don't know how to make one....[ or even know what the heck one is,....or even care....but we won't say that right here, bless your heart.] You probably get freaked out when people on the subway talk to you.
You can do your laundry without quarters.
None of your fur coats are homemade, bless your heart.
