View Full Version : Expressions from the South... got any good ones?

Hi Dopers! I remember seeing a thread here once a while ago that listed a bunch of interesting and colorful expressions, some of which originated from the South. I can't seem to find it.... anybody a clue what I'm talking about, or better yet, a link?

See, I have this friend who is moving to North Carolina and wanted to compile some of the best ones. I'd much appreciate any contributions, if y'all know any.

Here's some I remember:

"He's slicker than snot on a doorknob."

"You can't ride two horses with the same a s s."

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

That dog don't hunt. (Your logic is fundamentally flawed, my good man.)

If that don't work, we'll always think it shoulda. (I think that one's pretty recent, but it's always delivered with a Southern drawl.)

So dry the trees are bribin' the dogs.

The classic, whole bucket o' ugly.

Splittin' mud. (Running fast.)

... you'd think after six years in Texas I would know more of these, but most of the other ones coming to mind ("Lower than a snake's belly") strike me as cliche. Ah well.

First of all, welcome to the Straight Dope!

"Yeah, and if frogs had wings, they wouldn't bump their butts on the ground."

"He needed killin'."

Important North Carolina fact:
It's spelled 'Krzyzewski', but pronounced 'shuh-shef-ski'. Likewise, it's spelled 'Duke' but pronounced 'the-university-of-new-jersey-at-durham'. At least, in Chapel Hill, it is.

And maybe a helpful moderator could shuffle this off to IMHO.

'sweatin' like a whore in church'
'colder than a witch's tit'
'colder than a brass monkey's balls'
'hotter'n 700 hunderd dollars'
'he needs kil't'
'a big ol' (anything)'
'bless her heart' (usually just after a horrible insult: i.e. she is the filthiest whore in this town...bless her heart)


just a few of my favs.

Sharper than a bowling ball is more funny. Also, he's about as dumb as a box of hammers/rocks.

Sigogglin - means crooked or tilted, generally unbalanced. I assume it's short for side-goggling. Note, this is a totally hillbilly word, and I'm usually the only one who knows it on any particular occasion where this subject comes up.

Also, we can be right (very) mad, or just a might (little) peeved.

"Buggy" - The wheeled cart in which one deposits groceries while shopping.

"Good People" - Used to describe one who will come to your aid, is trustworthy, or generally a nice all-around individual. This is a singular phrase, not a plural one. As in "George Thatchberry? He's good people!"

"Fambly" - Your relatives.

"Seb'm Leb'm" - A convenience store that was originally named for the hours it was open.

"Play Pretty" - Term that should identify a toy; but in actual use only identifies what a toy is NOT. As in "JimBob! Don't touch your Grandma's glass unicorn collection! That ain't no play-pretty!"

"Football" or "Spring Football" - The only two acceptable answers to the question "What sport do you play, boy?"

One good thing about the south, IMO, is the fact that you can go into almost any eating eastablishment and order sweet tea. If you order sweet tea North of the Mason-Dixon line, you get a funny look and a comment like, "There's sugar on the table."

I actually like grits, too, but I think of Flo every time I eat them.

I think this is a variation of "Looks like two pigs fightin' under a blanket," a phrase made famous by the film Steel Magnolias.

This thread is making me homesick for good ol' Georgia...it's been 8 1/2 long rainy months without the Georgia sunshine and somebody to offer me a glass of sweet tea. Interestingly, one does need to differentiate in southern restaurants now as to whether you want sweet or unsweet tea, due to all of the diabetics and health nuts. Just ain't the same, I tell ya.

I have to reiterate the "Bless his/her heart" comment. My friends used to say that it was code for "He's an idiot," as in, "That boy fell out of the back of the pick-up and broke his arm. Bless his heart."

I have to admit that quite a few of these sayings apply to me. I say:
might could have
fixin' to
I ain't studyin' 'bout you.
aight
over yonder
He needs kil't.
That boy needs a whippin'.
Alrighty and Alrighty then
Don't pay me no mind.
It don't make no nevermind to me.

if you want to really submerge yourself in the vernacular of the South, I'd suggest the route of literature, as the pickings are sweeter than a summer time cane patch.

Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird" is a treasure trove of colloquialisms, as is "Cold Sassy Tree"..... the list could go on and on, and I don't mean to start another thread on good southern lit, but it could be a great resource for you. Especially as you live in the arctic circle.

My grandfather used to confuse me by referring to me as "stout." I was a skinny kid. But what he actually meant was "strong." He also asked me to "tote" things when he meant "carry."

All sodas are called Coke. "What kinda Coke you want?"I must protest this. I have lived in Georgia all my life and never, ever once heard this. We know that Coke is Coke and that all other sodas are different. If someone asks you if you want a Coke, it's probably because that's all they have in the fridge (aside from the sweet tea, that is).

More:

It don't differ. Usually pronounced "Hit" don't differ. Means "It doesn't make any difference."

Month of Sundays. Means a long time. "I ain't seen you in a month of Sundays!"

Also, victuals is pronounced vittles and means food. "Them's good vittles."

Be careful of the second-person-plural thing. If you say YOU it means you-singular. Y'all is plural. Other useful constructions are: "all of y'all" and "y'all's" (your). Someone who says "you all" is trying to sound proper.

Every North Carolinian uses the following words--

summers = somewhere
young 'un = young one, child
beegun = big one
littlun = little one

These may be real old be here goes -

Store bought - as opposed to home made

book learning - learned in school

trash - meaning people, not what is in the garbage can

public works - not the city departments but working in the public arena as opposed to working at home or on the farm. My sister works public works. She works in a store. My mother does not have a "job" but no one says she does not "work" as she runs the house and farm.

You got that right, Mariemarie..I can't stand it when yankees (or in the movies) somebody says "y'all" to a single person. And "you all" is just as bad. Ya is the singular roun cheer (around here), and y'all is a group.

I must protest your protest. :) I've lived in Georgia all my life with the recent exception of the last 8 months. When my mother offers someone a Coke, and they accept, she'll then say, "We have Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, and Dr. Pepper. Which one, sugah?" It's not that we don't know the difference as you stated, it's just a semantic thing. It's like saying "the store". If my mother asked me to go to the store, I'd then have to ask her to which one she wished me to go. And trust me, it matters.

To add a few terms of endearment, I do indeed call people (and especially my students) sugah, baby, darlin', pet, and honey.

Sister Vigilante
05-01-2003, 12:48 PM

He done wore his spurs to church again. (Acted inappropriately, usually while drinkin')

And the best advice my Grandmother ever gave: Jist 'cause you're used to the smell, don't think your shit don't stink. (Translation; Not everbody is gonna agree with you, so don't be so damned sure you're right.)

Also, there is an occasion known as "a come-to-Jesus-meetin". This is when somebody tells you 'zakly what they mean for you to know or do, and you'd best be heedin' what they say.

she's come undone, where is your friend moving to in North Carolina? It's a great place--I wouldn't live anywhere else. (Okay, maybe my own tropical island. Maybe.)

Tell her to look out for:
- Barbecue and hush puppies. It can't be beat. New York has its pizza; South Carolina has its low-country cooking; this is our culinary claim to fame.
- Cheerwine. It's a cherry-flavored cola that's only made around here. I used to suck it down by the gallon.
- Rabid basketball fans. Football might rule in Texas, but here it's basketball all the way.
- Rabid NASCAR fans. I don't get it either.
- The most beautiful spring seasons you'll ever see

Folks will call her "ma'am" and "honey." Tell her not to pay them no nevermind--they're just being friendly.

romansperson-
Here in Charleston the war is called - The late unpleasantness with the yankees.
And just an interesting note on how many people get the wars mixed up, I overheard this on a boat in Charleston Harbor.
"Look out there. That is Fort Summer where that guy wrote the Star Spangled Banner."
Oh Lordy! :(

Cheerwine!!

My outlaws love that stuff.

That may be why they moved back to Buies Creek.

It is strange tasting stuff, but oddly addictive.

I'll state some of the more obvious ones I grew up with.

"Lawd have mercy." (Amen.)

"You don't hate 'em, you hate their ways!" (No, I hate 'em.)

"Didja know that?" (No, fucker, I didn't. Thanks for telling me.)

"Stop by and see me, now." (Verbal answer: Of course I will, shugah! Mental answer: Not if you paid me, biatch.)

"I reckon she's a right nice girl." (You reckon?)

"I can NOT believe she's laid up with some man and them not even married!" (Lawd!)

"The child just ain't right. I don't know what it is, but he just ain't right." (Oh, he's fine. He's just a lil' slow.)

Memories, lawd, memories.
