Why would Texas try to be like California?!

California-Broke
Texas- Definately not broke
California- Cant shoot anyone
Texas- Can shoot anybody that comes in your yard
California- Likes health food and granola
Texas- Never met a Texan that would turn down Soul Food or that liked granola all that much.

Methinks Texas has the better end of the deal.

No, you don't need to say more. ROFLMAO. A Texan/Southerner will immediately appreciate -- ala your post -- the old Japanese wisdom. Which roughly translates as:

"One can see another's ass, but not their own."

Now, while you translate that, OP, Im going to go clean my shotgun and watch my cousin court my sister...
Here is the translation:

What you going do when you find out honey?
Is you going move somewhere down here that gets the most votes for country?
If thats your reasoning, then I suspect I'm going leave you wondering. If it's not, then I most likely say down Louisiana anyway. Them folks have drunk too much of that swamp water. I can understand a little southern... lol. Both of my grandparents are from the south.

Thats a good Yankee. Though you did miss a couple small trifles. " down Loosiana way" means "Down Louisiana's way"

and "expect" as well as "reckon" translates also into "think" or "thinking".
So, the complete sentence is that I think Im going to leave you wondering.

But still...not bad at all. Now 2 questions...just out of my own curiosity.

1. How many times did you have to re-read it.
2. Could you understand it if spoken quickly in person?

1. I had to read it two or three times( especially the part to translate going). My grandparents are originally from the south.
2. Probably not, The person may have to repeat it twice, depending on how thick his or her accent is. You like using the word yankee huh.

I'm from the South but even I had to read a bit slow...I'm not used to seeing words spelled like that lol.

Anyways, I don't know why "country" gets applied towards Southern all the time. There are country folks all over America. Maybe there are more in The South, I don't know. I wouldn't consider myself a country boy but I am a Southerner.

Lol
We're just teasing. You havent been called "Damn Yankee", so therefore it isnt an insult.
But, I have to say, your OP sounded a bit conedscending ( for lack of a better word). Hence the ribbing you are recieving.

Where were your grandparents from?

Be nice Tex.
He's been up in the cold too long and probably forgot that his grandparents probably wouldnt like to have their home state/area be called "country" in a seemingly negative way. Bless his heart....

I am going to ask again...and won't even use the term "yankee"

I confess. I don't know the answer to the question. Which is it, and why?

I know you're just joking. My grandfather is from Shreveport, LA and my grandmother is from Greensboro, AL. My grandparents are remove from the south by over 50 years.
