Question The South, You Gotta Love It


The owner of a golf course 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
Tennessee 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

You gotta love those UT women.

A group of Alabama friends went deer hunting an d 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

"A tough call," nodded the hunter. "But I figured no one is going to
steal Henry!"

A senior at Louisiana was overheard saying... "When the end of the wo

he replied he'd rather be in Louisiana because everything happens in

The young man from Mississippi came running into the store and said to

A Georgia State trooper
pulled over a pickup on I-65. The trooper asked, "Got any ID?"

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."

And my favorite: You can say what you want about the South, but you
never hear of anyone retiring and moving North!

Default Where'd I read it?

I lived in Washington for 26 years and you don't wear no polar fleece when the temp hit 112 in the shade
I thought the weather was one of the best things about the place besides the good paying jobs and hunting fishing rc flying water skiing snow skiing
camping snow mobiles all within 50 miles of my house in fact I had over 100 public access lakes within 50 miles of my house
Now if my wifes kids and grand kid would only move there I'd be gone in a skinny minute
