MISSISSIPPI DECLARES WAR ON U.S. GOVERNMENT- Courtesy of "Wrench"
President BOBO was in the Oval Office when his telephone rang."Hello, President BOBO" a heavily
accented southern voice said.
"This is Jimmy Boy, down here at Bump's Catfish Shack, in Vicksburg , and I am callin' to tell ya'll that we are
officially declaring war on y'all!"
"Well Jimmy Boy," BOBO replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is your army?"
"Right now," said Jimmy Boy, after a moments calculation "there is myself, my cousin Tom, my next-door-neighbor
and brother Gerald, and the whole dart team from JD's Bait Shop.
That makes eight or maybe nine depending if Bump can close the store.
BOBO paused. "I must tell you Jimmy Boy that I have one million men in my army waiting to move on my command."
"Wow," said Jimmy Boy. "I'll have to call ya
Sure enough, the next day, Jimmy Boy called again. "Mr. BOBO, the war is still on!
We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!"
"And what equipment would that be Jimmy Boy?" BOBO asked.
"Well sir, we have two combines, a bulldozer, and my brother Mike's farm tractor."
President BOBO sighed. "I must tell you Jimmy Boy, that I have 16,000 tanks and 14,000 armored

SOUTHERN CONFIDENCE CANNOT BE SHAKEN"
Three Yankees died in a car accident but since the quota for
Yankees had already been met St. Peter gave them a chance to go back to
earth as anything they wanted.
The first Yankee said ” I want to come back as myself, but 100 times smarter. So he was sent back 100 times smarter.
The second Yankee said “I want to be better than that guy, make me 1000 times smarter. So he was sent back 1000 times smarter.
The last Yankee decided he would be the best. So he said “make me better than both of them, make me 1,000,000 times smarter”.
So he was sent back as a Southerner !!
What do you call a northerner in handcuffs. Trustworthy.
Q: How do you keep a northerner from reading your e-mail?
A: Rename the mail folder to “instruction manuals”
Three Southerners and three Yankees are traveling by train to
a conference. At the station, the three Yankees each buy a train ticket
and watch as the three Southerners buy only a single ticket. “How are
three people going to travel on only one ticket?” asks a Yankee.
“Watch and learn,” answered one of the boys from the South.
All six boarded the train where the three Yankees sat down,
but the three Southerners crammed into a toilet together and closed the
Shortly after the train departed, the conductor came around
to collect tickets. He knocked on the toilet door and said, “Ticket,
The door opened just a crack and a single arm emerged with a ticket in hand. The conductor took it and moved on.
The Yankees saw this happen and agreed it was quite a clever
idea. Indeed, so clever they decided to do the same thing on the return
trip and save some money.
That afternoon when they got back to the station, they bought
a single ticket for the return trip and watched, while to their
amazement, the three Southerners didn’t buy even one ticket.
“How are you going to travel without a ticket?” asked a puzzled Yankee.
“Watch and learn,” answered the three Southern boys in
unison. When they boarded the train, the three Northerners crammed
themselves into a toilet and the three Southerners crammed into another
toilet just down the way.
Shortly after the train began to move, one of the Southerners
left their toilet and walked over to the toilet in which the Yankees
The Southerner knocked on the door and said, “Ticket, please.”
During world war two, three POWs, a southerner, a Californian, and a Yankee, are scheduled to be executed by firing squad.
They bring out the Southerner and stand him in front of the wall.
He points and shouts, “Tornado!” They all run for cover and the Southerner runs away.
Next, they place the Californian in front of the firing squad.
He yells “Earthquake!” They all hit the ground for safety and the Californian escapes.
Next up is the Yankee. He looks around and shouts “Fire!”
After a terrible storm, two Yankees from Boston wanted to
make some extra money cutting up trees that had fallen. They go to a
chainsaw shop and ask about various chainsaws for their new venture. The
salesman takes them straight to the top of the line model. “This
chainsaw will cut a hundred cords of wood for you in one day.” He says.
The two yankee boys purchase the chainsaw, take it home, and
begin eagerly working on the trees. After cutting for several hours and
only cutting two cords, they are exhausted and decided to quit. “How
can we cut for hours and only cut two cords?”, they ask themselves. “So
the next day they start early in the morning and cut all day” Still they
are only able to cut 5 cords of wood.
Convinced that they were sold a bad saw they went back to the
shop to complain. “This is a bad saw” said the smarter of the two
yankees. “The dealer told us it would cut one hundred cords of wood in a
day, no problem and it only cuts 5 cords. The dealer, baffled by the
yankees claim, removes the chainsaw from the case, pulls the cord and
cranks it up. The two yankees jump back and simultaneously say “What the
@@!??$ is that noise?”

SUBJECT: Southern Press Release
Issued by the Southern Tourism Bureau to All Visiting Northerners and Northeastern Urbanites:
1) Don't order filet mignon or pasta primavera at Waffle House.
It's just a diner. They serve breakfast 24 hours a day. Let them cook
something they know. If you confuse them, they'll kickyour ass.
2) Don't laugh at our Southern names (Merleen, Bodie, Ovine,
LutherRay, Tammy Lynn, Darla Beth, Inez, Billy Joe, Sissy, Clovis,etc.).
will just HAVE to kick your ass.
3) Don't order a bottle of pop or a can of soda. Down here it's
called Coke. Nobody gives a flying damn whether it's Pepsi, RC, Dr.
7-Up or whatever -- it's still just a Coke. Accept it. Doing otherwise
can lead to an ass kicking.
4) We know our heritage. Most of us are more literate than you
e.g., Welty, Williams, Faulkner. We are also better educated and
lot nicer. Don't refer to us as a bunch of hillbillies, or we'll kick
5) We have plenty of business sense (e.g., Fred Smith of Fed Ex,
Turner Broadcasting, MCI WorldCom, MTV, Netscape). Naturally we do,
sometimes, have small lapses in judgment e.g., Carter, Edwards, Duke,
Barnes, Clinton). We don't care if you think we are dumb. We are not
enough to let someone move to our state in order to run for the Senate.
If someone tried to do that, we would kick their ass.
6) Don't laugh at our Civil War monuments. If Lee had listened to
Longstreet and flanked Meade at Gettysburg instead of sending Pickett
the middle, you'd be paying taxes to Richmond instead of Washington. If
you visit Stone Mountain and complain about the carving, we'll kick your
7) We are fully aware of how high the humidity is, so shut the
hell up. Just spend your money and get the hell out of here, or we'll
8) Don't order wheat toast at Cracker Barrel. Everyone will
instantly know that you're a Yankee. Eat your biscuits like God intended
gravy. And don't put sugar on your grits, or we'll kick your ass.
9) Don't fake a Southern accent. This will incite a riot, and you will get your ass kicked.
10) Don't talk about how much better things are at home because
we know better. Many of us have visited Northern shit holes like
Chicago, and DC, and we have the scars to prove it. If you don't like it
here, Delta is ready when you are. Move your ass on home before it gets
11) Yes, we know how to speak proper English. We talk this way
because we don't want to sound like you. We don't care if you don't
understand what we are saying. All other Southerners understand what we
are saying, and that's all that matters. Now, go away and leave us
or we'll kick your ass.
12) Don't complain that the South is dirty and polluted. None of
OUR lakes or rivers have caught fire recently. If you whine about OUR
beauty, we'll kick your ass all the way back to Boston Harbor.
13) Don't ridicule our Southern manners. We say sir and ma'am. We
hold doors open for others. We offer our seats to old folks because
expected of civilized people. Behave yourselves around our sweet little
gray-haired grandmothers or they'll kick some manners into your ass
like they did ours.
14) So you think we're quaint or losers because most of us live
in the countryside? That's because we have enough sense not to live in
filthy, smelly, crime-infested cesspools like New York or Newark. Make
fun of our fresh air, and we'll kick your ass.
15) Last, but not least, DON'T DARE come down here and tell us
how to cook barbecue. This will get your ass shot (right after it is
You're lucky we let you snowbirds come down here at all. Criticize our
barbeque, and you will go home in a pine box -- minus your ass.
Southern Flavored Jokes:
A Department of Agriculture representative stopped at a farm and talked with the old farmer.
I'm going to inspect your farm."
The old farmer said, "You better not go in that field."
The Agriculture representative said in a wise tone, "I have the
authority of the Government with me. See this card? I am allowed to go
wish on agricultural land."
So, the old farmer went about his farm chores. Later, the farmer heard
loud screams and saw the Department of Agriculture representative
for the fence
and close behind was the farmer's prize bull. The bull was madder than a
full nest of hornets and the bull was gaining at every step.
The old farmer called out, "Show him your card!"
How do you tell the difference between Democrats, Republicans, and Southerners?
Answer: Pose the following question:
You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small
children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a wild look in his eyes;
and a huge knife in his hand comes around the corner, locks eyes with you,
screams obscenities, raises the knife, and charges. You are carrying a
Glock 40, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he
reaches you and your family. What do you do?
Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man
look poor or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire
him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the
kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of
his hand? What does the law say about this situation?
What would the ACLU say? Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into
it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does
this send to society and to my children? Is it possible he'd be happy with
just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content
just to wound me? If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family
get away while he was stabbing me? Should I call 9-1-1? Why is this street
so deserted? We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make
this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior.

Daughter: "Nice grouping, Daddy! Were those the Winchester Silver Tips or Black Talon Hollow Points??
A Southerner is having breakfast of coffee, grits, biscuits and jam,
when a northerner, chewing obnoxiously on gum, sits down next to him.
Southerner ignores the Northerner who, nevertheless, starts a
Northerner.."When you Southern people eat bread, do you eat the whole
Northerner..(After blowing a huge bubble) "We don't. Up North, we
onlyeat what's inside. The crust we collect in a container, recycle it,
transform them into biscuits and send them to the South." The Northerner
has a smirk on his face. The Southerner listens in silence. The
persist.."Do you eat jam with biscuits?"
Northerner..(Cracking and smacking his gum between his teeth and
chuckling) "We don't. Up North, after we eat fruit for breakfast, we put
peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, and
transform them into jam, and then send it down South."
Then the Southerner asks.."Y'all have sex up North?"
Northerner.."Why, of course, we do." And he pops another big bubble.
Southerner.."And what do y'all do with the condoms once ya use 'em?"
Northerner.."We throw them away, of course."
Southerner.."We don't. Down South, we put them in a jar, melt them down
into bubble gum, and sell them to Yankees."
A few Virginia boys were up in the Blue Ridge hang gliding one day when a couple of yankees came along.
"What are youse guys doing," they asked.
"Hang gliding," replied one of the Southern boys. "Want to give it a try."
"Well maybe... but I've never done it before," volunteered one of the yankees.
The Virginians assured the yank that there was nothing to it. So they
hooked him up, waited on the right wind, and off he went, sailing over
valley just as pretty as you please.
About this time a couple of good ole boys are in the valley hunting.
One of them looks up and exclaims, "Bubba, look up yonder at that
Squinting against the sunlight Bubba sees it and then lets go with a couple rounds.
"Did you get em?" asks the first hunter.
Bubba squirts out a stream of tobacco juice. "Naw, but I made it drop that damn yankee."
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six days.
Eventually, Michael the archangel found him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired of God, "Where have you been?"
God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael, look what I've made."
Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?"
"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put LIFE on it. I'm going to
call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance."
"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.
God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth, "For example,
Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while
Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over there will be a hot
spot and the Antarctica in the South will be very cold. Over there I've
a continent of white people and over there is a continent of black
people. God continued, pointing to different countries.
"This one will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."
The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a large area and asked, "What's that one?"
"Ah," said God. That's the SOUTH, the most glorious place on Earth.
There are beautiful mountains, lakes, rivers, streams and an exquisite
coastline. The people from there are going to be modest, intelligent
and humorous and they're going to be found traveling the world. They'll
extremely sociable, hardworking and high-achieving, and they will be
known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace. A truly
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, "What about balance, God? You said there will be BALANCE."
God replied wisely..."Wait until you see the loudmouth obnoxious people I'm putting north of them.
Black Boxes in 4-wheel Drives
The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged they had
covertly funded a project with the US auto makers for the past five
whereby the auto makers were installing black boxes in four-wheel drive
pickup trucks in an effort to determine, in fatal accidents, the
circumstances in the last 15 seconds before the crash.
They were surprised to find in 40 of the 50 states the last words of drivers in 61.2 percent of fatal crashes were, "Oh, Shit!"
Only the states of Georgia, Florida, North and South Carolina,
Mississippi, Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama, Texas and Tennessee were
over 89.3 percent of the final words were: "Hold my beer and watch
Thinks He Knows Her
An elderly couple were driving across the country. The woman was driving
when she got pulled over by the highway patrol. The officer said,
know you were speeding?"
The woman turns to her husband and asked, "What did he say?" The old man yelled, "He says you were speeding!"
The patrolman said, "May I see your license?" The woman turned to her
husband and asked, "What did he say?" The old man yelled, "He wants to
your license!" The woman gave him her license.
The patrolman said, "I see you are from Arkansas. I spent some time
there once and went on a blind date with the ugliest woman I've ever
The woman turned to her husband and asked, "What did he say?"
The old man yelled, "He thinks he knows you!"
Yankees! So many that come down here.... so few who go back.
What's the difference between a yankee and a damned yankee? A yankee
comes down here, looks around and goes back up North. A damned yankee
down here, looks around and stays.
It was another typical day in the flight control tower of a rural
Southern airfield as Bubba made his approach for a landing in his single
"Hello, flight control! This here is Bubba and I'm requestin' clearance to land this thang."
The flight tower paused a moment then said, "OK, Bubba. You take Runway No. 9."
"Roger dodger, flight control," came back the reply. "I'm bringin' 'er in!"
Just then another flight was approaching the airfield from another
direction. He too got on the air waves for clearance to land. "Hey,
This is Jethro. Gimme a runway to land on."
"OK, Jethro," came back the propmpt reply. "You can take Runway No. 9."
There was a moment of silence before Jethro came back on the air. "Hey! I thought you just gave Runway No. 9 to Bubba?"
"That's right," replied the control tower, "..... ya'll be careful, hear now!"
High Test Dog
The big city salesman pulled his car into the little country gas station
for a refill and a RC and moon pie. As he pulled up to the pumps a
old man, the service station attendant, came out of the store and
greeted the stranger with a smile. "Fill 'er up?" he asked.
"Sure," said the salesman and with this he went on in the store to get
the RC and moon pie while the old man filled up his tank with gas.
back outside he noticed an old hound dog laying beside one of the pumps,
for all appearances dead to the world. "Does that dog ever move any at
all?" asked the salesman.
The old man just grinned. He topped off the tank with gas then pulled
the nozzle out and proceeded to pump a little gas into a bowl laying
front of the old hound dog. To the salesman's astonishment, the dog
then proceeded to lap up every bit of gasoline that was in the bowl.
All of a
sudden the old dog came to life like a firecracker going off. He ran
around the gas station 5 or 6 times then tore off down the road at
speed only to turn around about a half mile down the road and come back
towards the gas station on a dead run. Getting back to the station the
came up to the pumps and then suddenly stopped and fell over and just
The salesman was stunned. "What's the matter with him," he asked, "is he dead?"
The old man started chuckling out loud. "Naw!" he said with a grin. "He's just out of gas."
Go Git Yo Mamma
A redneck family from the hills was visiting the city and they were in a
mall for the first time in their life. The father and son were
around while the wife shopped. They were amazed by almost everything
they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move
then slide back together again.
The boy asked, "Paw, What's 'at?"
The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, "Son, I dunno. I
ain't never seen anything like that in my entire life, I ain't got no
what it is."
While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old
lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a
walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The
walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small circular
above the walls light up sequentially. They continued to watch until it
reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the
order. Then the walls opened up again and a gorgeous, voluptuous
24-year-old blonde woman stepped out.
The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his Son, "Boy, go git yo Momma.... "
