Instructions For Moving
To The South
Save all manner of bacon grease.
You will be instructed later how to use it.
If you forget a Southerner's name, refer to him (or her) as "Bubba."
You have a 75% chance of being right.
Just because you can drive on snow and ice does not mean we can. Stay
home the two days of the year it snows.
If you do run your car into a ditch, don't panic. Four men in the cab
of a four wheel drive with a tow chain will be along shortly. Don't
try to help them. Just stay out of their way. This is what they live
Don't be surprised to find movie rentals and bait in the same store.
Do not buy food at the movie store.

Remember: "Y'all" is singular. "All y'all" is plural.

Northerners can be identified by the spit on the inside of their car's
windshield that comes from yelling at other drivers.
Satellite dishes are very popular in the South. When you purchase one

and should, therefore, be displayed.
Tornadoes and Southerners going through a divorce have a lot in common.
In either case, you know someone is going to lose a trailer.
