SCnupe - I'm afraid I'll need some proof of that so you'll have to take this quiz: 1.  Name the colors of the following Skoal flavors   - Straight   - Mint   - Vanilla 2.  What is cow-tipping? 3.  What is a flathead (no Policy, it is not me) 4.  What is the plural of y'all? 5.  What is the proof of Everclear? 6.  Complete this sentence:  Yankees _. 7.  SEC investigation means:         A.  You traded stock illegally         B.  'Bama done bought them another linebacker ....sorry, we've had some Yankees pretending to be good ole boys lately and I think we need a quick credential check on you
1. St- maroon mint- blue vanilla- trick question, only girls dip it. 2. how I spent Friday evenings in So Ga. 3. Whatchya fry and eat with hushpuppies 4. y'all is the 2nd person plural in English (the only language without one.) 5. The proof of Everclear is waking up in a field with no one around after a trashcan punch party. 6. suck. 7. Phat Phil done turned in Logan again. Proudly from South Ga.

Cow tipping doesn't work. They are freakin huge, and it takes at least a couple of guys to push that weight. While they will doze standing up, they are not out of it enough to sleep through 3 guys leaning into them. They just wake up and sort of shuffle over to the side. Cows have this look that they give that makes you feel like an idiot standing in the mud trying to push them over... Of course this is based on Georgia cows. I wonder if Netherlands cows are different. There goes my Friday night. K

tgfny, "y'all" is singular. The plural of y'all is "all y'all".

No, it isn't. I am from South Georgia and have never heard that variant. Have heard the argument that it is either singular or plural, but that is generally from Yankees trying to mock us.

That is ridiculous. Isn't ya'll a contraction of you all. How can ya'll be singular?

don't try to analyze it. that's a dead-end path. "y'all" ain't even a word in standard english, so it means whatever people want it to mean. in my opinion, it's usable almost anywhere you would usually say "you". which means it covers singular and plural. however, the sense i always got growing up in the south, is that "y'all" in the singular was more of an affectation, like someone trying to sound even more southern than they already were. but then again, that's part of the southern good-ole-boy manner. "y'all come back now." ...it's almost a self-caricature. and it's spelled "y'all", not "ya'll". that's a pet peeve of mine. "ya all" just doesn't make sense at all. now let's move on to possessives: mine yourn his'n her'n

Speaking of possesives, I once knew a girl that used to say "mines". As in that's mines. It used to drive me crazy.
