“Some men you know are Southern before they ever say a word. They remind you of something good - picnics or carrying sparklers around at night. Southern men will hold doors open for you, they’ll hold you after you yell at them, and they’ll hold on to their pride no matter what. Be careful what they tell you, though. They have a way of making you believe anything, because they say it that way.” “What way?” “I hope you never find out.” - The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen.
Somethin’ about ‘em.
As a Southern man, I approve this message.
Why I Love My Mother
- Politician at door: (blah blah blah)...and my strong commitment to traditional family values, as my wife of 28 years will attest.
- Shade's mom: Sir, I don't care if you have orgies every Tuesday night so long as you get your job done.
- Politician: ...
- Shade's mom: Also, if "traditional family values" is a sneaky way of saying "anti-gay marriage stance," you should know that my daughter is bisexual, and if I never get to cry at her wedding because some law you passed made her wedding illegal, I will personally see that your wife of 28 years has a lesbian awakening in time for you to discover the virtues of traditional divorce.
- Politician: ...you have yourself a nice day, m'am.
