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

...There are 5,000 types of snakes. 4,998 of them live in ARKANSAS.

...There are 10,000 types of spiders. All 10,000 live in ARKANSAS, plus a couple no one's seen before.

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

..."Onced" and "twiced" are words.

...It's not a "shopping cart". It's a "buggy".

...Fire ants consider you a picnic.

...People actually grow and eat okra.

..."Fixinto" is one word.

... It's not "dinner". It's "supper".

... Ice tea is appropriate for all meals, and you start drinking it when you're two. Oh yeah, and if it ain't sweet, it ain't TEA!

... "I know you backards and fords" 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 start when you're ready and you work until you're done or it's too dark to see.

...You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH 'em.

Got more?

Walking down the hall at school with my class of around 9 and 10 year olds, we saw a 7 or so year old rolling around in the floor. My young man in the lead that day said, "OOOO WEEEEE, Mrs. D., that boy's got ISSUES!"
