    The South - You Gotta Love it!

    Alabama
    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-point buck."Where's Henry?" the others asked.
    "Henry had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail," 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!"
    Georgia
    The owner of a golf course in Georgia was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help. He called her into his office and said, "You graduated from the University of Georgia and I need some help. If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?"
    The secretary thought a moment, and then replied, "Everything but my earrings."
    Louisiana
    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."
    Mississippi
    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."
    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 around and 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 neither."
    Tennessee
    A Tennessee State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-65. The trooper asked, "Got any ID?"
    The driver replied, "Bout whut?"
    Texas
    The Sheriff pulled up next to the guy unloading garbage out of his pick-up into the ditch. The Sheriff asked, "Why are you dumping garbage in the ditch? Don't you see that sign right over your head."
    "Yep", he replied. "That's why I'm dumpin' it here, cause it says: 'Fine For Dumping Garbage'."

       Flares, that's so funny.

    Flares, that's so funny. The Tenn was good too. A guy I used to work with always pronounced his last name as "bears" I thought that was his last name. I found out later on his last name was actually Bowers lol. He was looking at a magazine about hunting and there was a bear on the page, I was like it has the same last name as you, Mr. Bear! He said no it don't and spelled it out Bowers lol. I was like ooops! :)

    I know what you mean.  I

    I know what you mean. I lived in west Kentucky for 4 years (shout out to all my KY kin!), and they would always say tarred when they were thinking tired. I'm like, "You're tarred? Is that like in feathered too!"

    I finished high school up there (I came in, in the middle of the school year.), and I was in one of my senior classes taking a test, and I noticed the teacher was pacing back and forth, back and forth watching me. Others were still taking their tests too, so I was like, WTF? He's like, "How much do you like?" I'm like, "How much do I like?" He's like, "Yea, how much do you like?!" I'm all, "I don't get it! I like a lot of things! I like rock n' roll and partying and..." The kids are starting to laugh at this point, and he's getting ticked. He's all, "No! How much do you like being done on the test?" I was like, "I'd like to be done right now!" The whole class was on the floor cracking up at the new twit. He spells it out for me, "How much do you L A C K being done on the test?!" I'm like, "Oh. Just a little." I had only been in the school like a week, and all of a sudden, I went from being the most popular kid to the least popular kid...or vice versa. Ha! I am laughing so hard typing this, since it's bringing back so many memories. It was so hysterical.
