Hee Haw! It's another episode of the Puddles Show!!
That's a great couch you got there P. Do they come already stocked with beer in SC??

Your dictionary will be most useful in translating your posts. Have you checked into a redneck translator widget for your blog?? That would be even more convenient for those of us who speak and read ENGLISH.


Jeff Foxworthy's got nothin' on you duddles.

Road Dog Tales said...

Mom 'bout spit her coffee all over the keyboard. She's from Lanner, Jawjuh and she still laughs about this. She has a funny story about working at an import company that sold mopeds and was trying to tell someone in Ohio about oil and he asked her to repeat what she said so many times that the whole office started laughing when she kept saying Oil/all and finally had to spell it.

A MilShelb Mom said...

hahaha! Our Mom just laughed so hard she's got tears on her face! We have to admit that we hear people talk like that all the time, but the only word our Mom uses from that list is "fixin'" and our Dad doesn't talk like that at all cause his family is from Maine.
~Milly and Shelby

ps- We LOVE the song! lol

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Puddles, we were sure hoping you would like to come visit us in Kansas one day, but we sure have a lot of studying to do - not sure we would be able to communicate very well. We are off to study hard right now:)

Y'all have a good weekend now.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

Mollie said...

We must hereby declare that we no longer admit to knowing Puddles. We have been worshiped by Egyptians and sat at the feet of Pharaohs. We are far too dignified for such behavior and language. We can barely stand living here with our mom - you see, she is from West Virginia. Need we say anything more?! Oops, here she comes now...must go beg for treats. She's a sucker - it works every time!


Sequoia & Petunia & Emma said...

Hee heee heeee Puddles we luvs it!

Peggy Frezon said...

Wow thanks for that education! That was funny!

Lorenza said...

I have problems understanding "normal" english and now... I guess I am lost!
Beer and cheetos is what I need now!
Kisses and hugs

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

That was most educational, Puddles. Being up here on Lawn Guyland we don't know nuthin' about no accents or how youse guys in the Sout' talk. We got cultcha heah.

Hee, hee. Sounds like you were madder'n a hornet in a mayonaise jar at somedoggy. (Alpha Mom lived in NC for a while and a friend of hers used say that about his wife - when she was mad, that is.) We did enjoy the post. We love learning about exotic places and stuff like that.

lotsa licks, Lola

Waggin my soggy tail at ya,

Tucker said...

Hey Puddles, I cashed in all my curtesy sniffs in the car today on the way home from my adventure. BOL! I luvs that joke.....

Dexter said...

Miss Puddles! That was most instructive. I am going to have my momma try it out. Stay tuned.


Ziggy Stardust said...

PeeS: Save one of those beers for me??

Anonymous said...

Heehee! Thank you for giving me all those translations. My mom understood every one of 'em - being from Oak-luh-home-ah and such. But since I'm a Collie-rado girl, I needed a little help. says that that should be "hep."

Wiggles & Wags,

PeeS. Mom says one of her all-time Southern favorites is "warsh." As in, it's time to warsh the clothes in the warshing machine.
