A few things to know about Louisiana ...


Possums sleep in the middle of the road with their feet in the air.

There are 5,000 types of snakes, and 4,998 live in Louisiana.

There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in Louisiana, plus a couple that nobody has seen before.

Squirrels will eat anything. And folks in Louisiana will eat squirrel.

Unknown critters love to dig holes under tomato plants.

Raccoons will test your crop of melons and let you know when they are ripe.

If it grows, it sticks; if it crawls, it bites.

A tractor is NOT an all-terrain vehicle. They do get stuck.

Onced and Twiced are words.

It is not a shopping cart, it is a buggy.

Fire ants consider your flesh as a picnic.

People actually grow and eat okra.

"Fixinto" is one word.

There ain't no such thing as "lunch." There's "dinner" and then there's "supper."!

Sweet tea is appropriate for all meals, and you start drinking it when you're two.

"Backards and forwards" means, "I know everything about you."

"Jeet?" is actually a phrase meaning "Did you eat?"

You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is. You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.



More about Louisiana: You know you're from Louisiana if:

1. You measure distance in minutes.

2. You've ever had to switch from heat to air conditioning in the same day.

3. You see a car running in a store parking lot with no one in it no matter what time of the year.

4. You use "fix" as a verb. Example: I am fixing to go to the store.

5. All the festivals across the state are named after a fruit, vegetable, grain, insect or animal.

6. You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.

7. You carry jumper cables in your car... for your OWN car.

8. You only own four spices: salt, pepper, Tabasco and ketchup.

9. The local papers cover national and international news on one page and six pages for local gossip and sports.

10. You think that the first day deer season is a national holiday.

11. You find 100 degrees Fahrenheit "a little warm."

12. You know all four seasons: almost summer, summer, still summer, and Christmas.

13. Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time known as "Goin' wal-martin" or "Off to 'Wally World'."

14. You describe the first cool snap (below 70 degrees) as good gumbo weather.

15. A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola, or pop...it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor. Example: "What kinna coke you want?"

16. Fried Catfish is the other white meat.

17. You understand these and forward them to your friends from Louisiana (and those who just wish they were).

These all sound like Iowa and leaving the car unlocked and running. Some are for any rural parts of the country.

I know what Squirrel meat taste like and it ain't like chicken. The squirrels have a taste somewhat like pork with a corn flavor. Guess where those buggers have been (in the silo)

When searching for tractor shows in LA, why do folks keep up sites for defunct clubs? I even e-mailed a guy about his club and why the most recent show described was in 2001. He replied that he left up the site for informational purposes :confused: Even the state fair is real slow in updating their website. All I could get was 2003 info until about 6 weeks before the 2004 fair. I realize that since I an a "damnyankee" (I've been told that is one word through out most of the south) I'm used to a little faster paced lifestyle, so is it just my perception then that is skewed?

Differences between Acadia and Cajun Country:

Around here, lunch is what you get if you enter a nice restaurant between 12 and 2. If it's home it's dinner. Supper is at 6

When I worked in New Brunswick the big dogfight of the year was over whose secretary got to take off the first week of hunting season, and which girl needed to stay to cover the phones! One year i lost, and she wouldn't speak to me for two weeks!

A little warm is over 60. Freedom 55 means it's warm enough to work outside without a shirt on!

The four seasons are winter, fishing, tourist, and hunting.

Women go to Wally world. Real men go "down to Crappy Tire!"

My parents are from Pennsylvannia and when my family went up there to visit grandparents, the joke was...

My grandparants did breakfast, dinner and supper too.

Some other ones that made me giggle.
