Being Southern, I consistantly use “Bless your heart” as the equivalent of “You’re a fucking moron.” 🙂

My grandma still uses “I’m busier than a one-legged man in a butt-kicking contest.” It’s amusing to hear it come out of an 89 year old lady’s mouth. Oh, Grandma.

Oh, FI has so many country expressions! I feel like I learn a new one every day!

Some examples:

I’m gonna stomp a mudhole in your ass (I’m gonna kick your ass)

I bet that makes your asshole pucker up! (I bet that scares you!)

Don’t show your ass. (Don’t embarass yourself)

The mouse in your pocket (He says this if he’s talking to me and I’m not paying attention and then ask if he’s talking to me. He’s like — No, I’m talking to the mouse in your pocket.)

Now that I type these out, I realize a lot of them have to do with asses Surprised

Personally, I love when old southern ladies use “bless their heart” to make something less offensive, like “that tramp couldn’t keep her.legs shut if they were duck taped together, bless her heart”. Like adding the ending somehow makes the insult less insulting? I’m sure I use lots but I don’t notice because everyone uses them.

My favorite, used all the time by my bff, is to say that something was so good it was  “jump up and slap your grandma good.” 

??!!?? WHERE oh where do phrases like this come from?

How about “hungrier than a nun’s twat?” – One of my husband’s friends said that and I laughed and then immediately felt awful for laughing. Who thinks of these?? Hah, I almost can’t believe I actually posted this.

My favorite is “Even a blind hog finds an acorn once in a while”

Also hear..

“Well I’ll be dog-gone” or “Well I swanney” (Used to express incredulity)

“Nervous as a cat in a roomfull of rockers” (self explanitory and I think hysterical)

“Ridden hard and put up wet” (if someone looks terrible – its not dirty its a horse reference!)

“A month of Sundays” (a long time)
