I don’t think much explanation is needed for this but once you read it, you’ll be dying to read a dictionary for it’s proper spelling alone! Anyone outside of Tennessee, this is not the best we have to offer… I hope. My favorites: 1. tryna make it (hey, aren’t we all) 2. ne thing (much easier than typing anything, ow my fingers hurt now) 3. all she needs are hot water and a toothbrush (for her 3 teeth, I’m assuming)
Hard to believe it’s already December and while there’s clearly still time left in 2013, I present the “Out of the Wilderness Top 10 Posts of the Year”! If doing this before December 31st rubs you the wrong way, then I encourage you to bookmark the page and revisit it on new year’s day. Hey, that’ll give you something fun to do at halftime of any of the 75 football games going on that day. Out of the Wilderness had 122 new posts this year, which is roughly 1 every 3 days. The list below, though… it encompasses the entire Wilderness catalog. So before I get all misty-eyed, let’s get to it!
More about the post: I’ll let you in on a little secret… I love lists. So around the time of this particular post, I was making lists of other Top 10’s also. I don’t know what got into me! So anyway, this post includes a few things I’ve noticed over the years about people who are typically considered rednecks. And this was before I ever started watching Duck Dynasty! I’m sure there would be a few more additions had I typed it up after getting hooked on DD.
Anyone know the plural of “y’all”? It’s “all y’all.”
Anyway, it’s been going on since the first redneck said “y’all.” I’m talking about combining words to make shorter words. This sort of mashing up doesn’t really concern me, because it’s unstoppable. But a recent trend isn’t sitting well with me. Combining words that have no business being combined. Over the course of some months I jotted a few down. Let’s start with the one girls invented… brunch. Men don’t eat brunch. We eat breakfast. We eat lunch. Anything in between is just another breakfast, or a first lunch. Here’s the rest of the list.
Brunch. More on this, here.
Cassingle. A cassette tape featuring a single song from your favorite artist.
Liger. A cross between a lion and a tiger. Bred for it’s skills in magic.
Infotainment. Car commercial promoting the vehicle’s information/entertainment system.
Twitterverse. Not a real universe.
blogosphere. Wrong on many levels.
Brangelina. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.
Bennifer. Ben Affleck and any Jennifer he’s dating/marrying at the time.
Minajesty. Often a sarcastic reference to Nicki Minaj.
Beautimous. I heard this on Honey Boo Boo. Beatiful + ??? = Beautimous.
Twerk. Twerking. To work. People all over the country are getting in trouble for this one. Even Miley Cyrus.
And the worst of them all… Subway’s “FebruANY.” C’mon son. That’s elementaweak.
I feel like a Southerner. Why? How many Northerners have to mow their driveway? I think all they do is drink unsweet tea and talk about the big snow of ’04. I’m right, right? Let me know. Meanwhile, I’ll be outside mowing the yard/driveway.
