Being and Ex michigander living in Altanta I can appreciate all these joke LOL.
Got to meet Foxworthy. He's a funny guy non stop.
Now a few observations. People from Michingan don't have accents...except when they are drunk (which is most of the time).

You folks up north don't know how to make tea.

I am actually happy when it snows 2 inches here. I get at least one day off.

When in Marietta GA all Direction involve either "When you get to the big chicken" or "from the big chicken". We were afraid to ask what a Big chicken was when we moved here LOL. Go to www.google.com and put in "Big Chicken".

At one time the Big chicken was in bad shape and they were going to tear it down. Marietta residents pititioned to save it because nobody would know how to get anywhere without it.

Ok here is a popular Georgia joke. (It's really started from UGA)

Why do the trees in Georgia lean west?


















Cause Alabama SUCKS! LOL
I didn't make it I'm just repeating it so our AL subcribes need not to linch me.

As a new Southerner, I have to take exception to those "Red neck jokes" by Jeff Foxworthy. He obviously does not know what he is talking about:

"you may be a red neck if you mow your driveway"

As every full or half blooded red neck will tell you:

You do not mow a driveway.....you weedwack it.


[PICTURE _ home after 3 months on the road: one of our 2 weedwackers is by the door]

and a "music business" joke:

what is 50 feet wide and has 12 teeth? ANSWER: the front row at the Grand Ole Opry

Let's see: Dad was from New Jersey, Mom was from Pennsylvania, my sister and I were born in Texas because my dad worked for Shell Oil. I have several cousins from Conn. (oops, one just moved to Pa.) and that about covers it. Hmmmm, does this make me international because I've been in Tn. since '67?

Seems to me that makes you pretty smart. Got out of the cold north, got out of Hot Texas and found a nice middle ground.

No you still don't have it....You let the goat loose, if you don't have a goat you barrow one and bring it home in the back seat of your camaro.

Please.....I don't want to hear anybody talking about getting a goat.

Mike has been dreaming about goats & sheep for years. (no, NOT that way, very innocently). He thinks they are the solution to our weed problem.
The REAL reason we got a truck instead of the van, was we couldn't find our way home. Try to follow a 1/4 mile driveway, covered 3 feet high by grass, in the headlight, at night, that's a nice homecoming. That's when it hits us :"we are not in Philadelphia anymore"

About those goats/sheep: we do a show in the Finger Lakes of NY, on a sheep farm. Mike has been learning every year more and more about the superiority of sheep over lawmower (they RENT sheep to power companies !!!).
I am afraid that this year he is going to try to smuggle a few home. Just pile a dozen of them on the lift gate and hide them in the truck.

Get one of those industrial type blow torches and burn it to the ground!

No worries on health, age, etc. Take it out only when you need it. Don't worry about it getting cold or freezing. And it can be very theriputic.

Burn who?

1_ weeds? tried it, does not work

2_sheep? tried that, whole sheep. It's called a "mechoui". It's great.

3_Mike? I think it's a bit radical, he's got a few years left.

Of course the weeds silly.

They do it around here in the forrest preserves and they are gone for about a month or so.

The minus is that you have to do it again. The plus is that you get all that Rambo style stuff out of your system.

If that's no good, then be a like a northerner and pave it. Take the dead cars, stoves, and rubbish away first since asphalt does not adhere to those surfaces very well!

Regards,

Eric
