What a bunch of great folks!!

I am totally discombobulated by your comments. Someone on the List here told me about the source of a word I used before. It was a "Dusey!" I really liked that one.

From Deusenberg - a very high end carriage built sports car from the 20's and 30's. Jay Leno owns one and says it is the one vintage auto that he can ride on the freeway without getting rude hand gestures because it will GO. He's taken it to plus 100 mph.

An old Hollywood story has it that Gary Cooper and Clark Gable used to have a "leading man" feud going and that Cooper claimed that "his was 2 inches longer than Gable's".... he was talking about their respective Deusenbergs of course.

Rebuilding your vocabulary. From the top, down.

It is a long road and just remember; "ain't got no" is not slang. It's just bad grammar.

In the deep south, "pot licker" is not an action but something we consider good eats.

I knew just what he was talking about. Actually I know just what Jeff Foxworthy means before he explains what his redneck words mean. This doesn't look good for us down here in Oklahoma, does it? I like the latest phrase "widja-didja". You didn't bring your big truck widja didja?(That's with you did you for you northern folks)

Ohio-speak

catywampus, kittycorner, discombo(o)bulated and kludge are all part my family's language...but when used in "mixed company" some folks don't have a clue what we are talking about.

My grandma also used "youens" or "yens" like in "what time youens comin over fur supper?" Never did get that one...

This is great. NOW I can get with it, so to speak. There's words in here I'll never even be able to find a circumstance to use, but you can bet I'll try

I was born, and have lived in CA my whole life. Cattywampus is pretty common here. Although I don't think I have ever seen it written before tonight. As for cussing, my Dad's version was "dagnabbit".
