SOUTHERNISMS

Standard

More southern phrases I heard growing up:

“Well, she’s cuter than a June bug.” (I know it’s supposed to be a compliment, but have you ever SEEN a June bug?)

“What’d you do, son?  Comb your hair with an egg-beater?” (Yet again from my brother to my nephew, who was blessed/cursed with a ton of cowlicks)

“Well, that takes a special kind of stupid.”

“He was as nervous as a pig on ice.”

And from my school teacher (she was talking to a student that kept trying to haggle about turning in homework and if they did this and that to make up the assignment.)  “Oh yeah?  Well, if a frog had wings he wouldn’t bump his @$$ when he jumped!”
