Wow, that really redefines the term "goofballs"

I think it's time for "umver" to enter the popular lexicon. It can be best buds with "uff da."

I have never seen it spelled out like that but I like it. Looks more like a real word.

"Hessians" was a thing in Louisiana. "Hessian aggression" is what made them cause trouble.


Used that word in California as well, along with "hesher," which meant the same thing.

I can't take credit - that's how it's spelt at the Urban Dictionary!

When I was a kid, I lived in the Arklatex, the area where Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas meet. You never hear the term outside of the area, but turn on a TV station from Longview or Shreveport, and it's Arklatex this and Arklatex that. Best catfish in the Arklatex! Your #1 Chevy dealer in the Arklatex! Most of the Arklatex will be under a tornado watch until 9:00pm...


This stretches way farther west into Texas than it should. I grew up in Longview and Tyler; Shreveport stations were where we got all of our news. I was explaining Texarkana to a co-worker just this week. Jack King Jr. In "DAAAAAOOOOWNTAAAAAOOOOWN TY-LURR" Was your number one car dealer in the Arklatex.

My grandpa used to ask about my grades and say something along the lines of "wow, you're a fart smeller.... I mean a smart feller!"

"Can't beat that deal with a stick,"

"Tits on a boar hog," in reference to a useless person or thing.

"Shit on a shingle" was beef tips in gravy on toast. I believe that's a military term.

"Finer than frog hair split four ways," is a response to an inquiry as to your general well being.

I can do this all day. I'm surprised I have a decent time getting my point across.

More Texas stuff:

I have always heard and used the expression "hunt you down" to mean. . .well, you know. I have also always heard and used "tore up" as a euphemism for being drunk.

A person I met from southwest Texas uses "hunt you up" and "tore down" to mean the same things.

Don't like-- seems to be on the east coast people say " next on line"
I can't stand it. I'm not on line . I'm not on a computer. My body and the other bodies around me make a grouping that appears to be a line. We are the line . We are in line.

Rodeo Week.. or was it Month? (February I think)

Two weeks of gym class devoted to square dancing. I made it to 'finals' one year: a recital in front of the whole school..

I seem to remember there being 2-3 truck months per year in my neck of the woods growing up.

I can’t do it because I’m at work right now, but someone needs to post some Texas Dairy Queen commercials.

Yuck. This is probably the first time I've ever really appreciated not having a big dick. So, thanks for this.

I came-up with the name during an unfortunate icepicking incident in my old apartment. If it happens to touch a turd, then you've been tugboated.

Hard agree. "Go up and visit her, she'll make ye a mess of catheads." (Catheads are bigass drop biscuits in Appalachia.)

"y'all" and "yonder" fill holes in American English, imho.

I enjoy "plum", as an adverb meaning "completely".
"I'm plum wore out."
"He didn't just break it, he plum tore it up."

As insults that don't contain curse words go, "dingbat" and "peckerwood" have a lot of character.

Party Store

No, not a place to buy balloons or streamers or birthday candles, but the Pure Michigan® name for a package liquor/cigarettes/convenience store.
