* Only a Southerner can show or point out to you the general direction of “yonder.”
* Only a Southerner knows exactly how long “directly” is as in: “Going to town, be back directly.”
* All Southerners know exactly when “by and by” is. They might not use the term, but they know the concept well.
* Only a Southerner knows instinctively that the best gesture of solace for a neighbor who’s got trouble is a
plate of hot fried chicken and a big bowl of cold potato salad.
* Only Southerners grow up knowing the difference between “right near” and “a right far piece.” They also know that
“just down the road” can be 1 mile or 20.

(in the car).
* In the South, ‘y’all’ is singular….’all y’all” is plural.😎
* And a true Southerner knows you don’t scream obscenities at little old ladies who drive 30 MPH on the freeway. You just say “Bless her heart” and go your own way.

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes….

One of our projects at military leadership school called for us to speak

in front of the class on a topic picked by our instructor. A classmate gave
an impassioned speech on the benefits of drinking liquor. Alcohol, he
insisted, warded off colds, kept you alert, and even made you steadier
on your feet. “Good job,” said our instructor when he finished. “Only one
thing: Your topic was the benefits of drinking liquids, not liquor.”😱😏😁😎

Wednesday’s Quizzler is…….

Emperor Akbar once ruled over India. He was a wise and intelligent ruler, and he had in his court the Nine Gems, his nine advisors, who were each known for a particular skill. One of these Gems was Birbal, known for his wit and wisdom. The story below is one of the examples of his wit. Do you have it in you to find out the answer?

One day, a dishonest, one-eyed man wanted to punish Birbal. He accused him of stealing his 24 karat gold necklace and reported this theft to the police. The case was brought to the high court where the judge knew Birbal very well, and he also knew that he was not a thief. So, he asked the man, “What makes you think that Birbal stole your necklace?”

“Your Honor, with my own one eye, I saw him stealing the necklace,” the man swiftly replied. Then he stated, “If he is innocent, let him prove it. Allow me to bring a hot iron, and if he can hold it in his bare hands, then I will be satisfied that he didn’t take my necklace and isn’t lying to me.”

A confused Birbal said, “You mean that if I’m telling the truth, I will not burn my hands with that red hot iron?”

“Of course not! God will then protect you,” the man strongly declared in front of a nodding crowd.

It would seem as if Birbal couldn’t do anything but hold the red hot iron which would undoubtedly burn him whether he was telling the truth or lying. However, he came up with another one of his witty replies on the spot.

Can you guess what he said?
