About this title

Synopsis:

"Pull up a chair and sit a spell!" (For you Yankees, this means "hello!") Ninety-five helpful, humorous lists are included in this book to remind Southerners and inform Yankees of what it means to be Southern. The lists cover topics near and dear to every true Southerner's heart, like food and pickup trucks.

Breakfast for the Southerner may be traditional ("buttermilk biscuits and gravy, fried eggs and sausage, and 'taters, coffee, and milk") or unusual ("Moon Pie and Diet Coke"). Also, "lunch" is called "dinner" south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and iced tea, served in as large a glass as possible, is an acceptable drink with any meal.

Southerners love their pickup trucks! They are "rarely washed, never totally clean," and have a "muffler that rarely muffles anything." And no pickup would be complete without the obligatory gun rack on the rear window that may contain a "shotgun, umbrella, whip, cattle prod, baseball bat, or cowboy hat."

"Take care now." That means good-bye.
