Tips for Northerners Moving to the South

If you are a northerner you will inevitably want to someday move south to warmer weather and away from…  well you know what I mean.   Here are a few tips that will help you transition into southern ways.

First, you are going to need to get used to hearing proper english.  After hearing words pronounced incorrectly all your life you may feel like you are in a foreign country.  The letter “R” is used often in words so you will need to get used to that.  Just give it some time and you’ll be communicating just like a pro. 

Now being up north has probably made you very angry which is why you are so aggressive and rude.  Sort of like a bear coming out of hibernation.  We understand that down here in the south and are tolerant to a point.  I know your momma told you that politeness was a weakness but remember that your momma is a yankee.  If you get the idea that your aggressive, rude behavior may give you some type of competitive edge just remember that there are more guns than people in the south.  Plus plenty of wide open spaces to bury you.

Waving is a southern tradition.  Sort of like cursing is in the north.  When someone waves at you they are not indicating that they need assistance so you don’t need to ignore them.  Instead, wave back.  If you don’t you will be seen as rude in which case you should refer back to my point about the guns and wide open spaces.

When it comes to driving in icy conditions we concede that you have us beat.  This being said, if it does snow it is best if you stay off the roads.  We know you can drive on ice but you should know that we cannot.  If you do decide to drive make sure you keep a 12 pack of beer in your trunk.  This is not for you.  It is for the 2 guys that will be pulling you out of a ditch with their 4 wheel drive truck after an out of control southerner runs you off the road.  No need to help, just give them the beer and go on your merry way.

Speaking of the weather, if you live near the coast down here in the south you will no doubt be introduced to what we call a hurricane.   Southerners are known to wrestle live alligators and hunt wild hogs with just a bowie knife and a bandana.  In other words, they don’t scare easily.  I say this to drive home the point that if you see southerners evacuating then something bad is definately about to happen.  A hurricane is like a bad redneck marriage.  It is almost certain that someone’s going to lose a trailer.  After it is all over you will see a phenomenon that you have probably never seen in your life.  People helping other people for no reason at all.  Don’t worry, it is contagious but it won’t kill you. 

Before you head south, start saving bacon grease in a can.  There is no need to refrigerate it, just keep it under the sink.  When you arrive down south you will be instructed on how to use it.

We spoke a while ago about guns.  In the north only the mafia, cartel members and the police carry guns.  Down here we all have guns.  It is not unusual at all for a 10 year old boy to get a shotgun for his birthday.  We believe that gun control is when you use both hands to aim.  Keep this in mind the next time you get the urge to honk at the guy in front of you.

Now, a little more information about that bacon grease.  Up north grease is something that gets into pipes and requires a plumber to clean out.  Down here we cook with it.  It makes almost any dish taste better.  We add it to baked beans, collard greens, turnip greens, green beans, hash brown potatoes, fried eggs and so much more.  To be southern you have to cook southern and eat southern so just get used to it.   It will subtract about 10 years from your life but hey…  You’re a northerner.

Speaking of food, eating down south is going to be a little different for you.  We don’t eat scrod or lox.  Let me see if I can create a mental picture for you.  New Orleans is the center of the universe when it comes to good food.  Think of it as the sun.  As you move away from it the food gets worse and worse.  If you go to New Orleans and don’t like the food then living down south is not going to go well for you.  Also, we will fry and eat almost anything.  Frog legs, chickens, turkeys, pork chops, egg plant, okra, squash, seafood, onions, pickles, cheese and even ice cream.  What do we fry it in?  Grease.  We love grease.  How do we remove grease?  With soap of course.  Where does soap come from?  Grease.   That is sort of cool.  Kind of like the circle of life.

Don’t talk about how nice it is up north or how much you miss home.  You never hear Haitian boat people do that and neither should you.  Keep in mind that many of us have visited the north.  Why do you think we make fun of you?  Just enjoy your new found freedom.  We have everything you need here.  Fresh air, mild winters, plenty of waterfront and beaches, mountains, woodlands, streams, fishing, hiking, camping, sunshine and more.  Plus you can join us in making fun of yankees.  That is sort of the best part.

If you are a guy and lucky enough to have escaped the north at a young age you are going to want to know a little bit about southern girls.  They are not like northern girls. 

  • Tip Number One – you don’t have to pay them for a date.  Remember, you are in the south now. 
  • Tip Number Two – No cursing.  Remember, this is a southern girl, not your mother. 
  • Tip Number Three – Don’t tell her where you are from.  If you have to just say you are from Canada. 
  • Tip Number Four – a prenuptial agreement is useless.  Remember, she probably owns a gun and her father most likely has some acreage purchased for just such an event.

Definition of a Yankee or Northerner – What is a Yankee?

The term yankee or northerner refers to people who live in the northeastern part of the United States.  New Englander is another name for them but not often used due to its lack of offensiveness. Yankees do not include people west of Minnesota even though they are in the northern United States.

Besides participating in the war of northern aggression, yankees can be identified by a few distinct characteristics.  These are as follows:

Anger – Yankees seem to always be angry. They communicate this anger verbally through constant cursing but also non verbally using their car horn and middle finger. Northern anger is partly genetic due to inbreeding but it is also attributed to toxins found in both northern air, soil and water.   Some say that this aggression is from the cold weather but when a yankee is relocated to a warmer climate the condition does not seem to change leading scientists to conclude that the problem is genetic.  Pharmaceutical companies are currently developing medication for this condition but so far only alcohol seems to help.  To be effective, alcohol must be administered in large quantities to everyone except the yankee.  If given the other way around the problem just becomes worse.

Rudeness -If you see people holding the door open for others or saying thank you then you are either hallucinating or you are in the south.  Southerners are famous for good food and hospitality, Westerners are famous for their pioneer spirit, Californians are famous for being laid back and Northerners are famous for being rude.  If you want to be trampled at a concert, cut off in traffic, honked at, yelled at, cursed at, spit on, and ridiculed then just head north.  This trait is also the reason for the unmarked graves often found along southern roadways.

Omniscience –  In the north people are born knowing it all and die the same way.  Again, the only explanation is bad DNA.  Because they know everything they are the only ones that really need to talk.  In a conversation your only job is to nod your head and grunt.  Any attempt at talking on your part will be considered offensive to a yankee.  They truly want to be the bride at every wedding and the corpse at every funeral. 

Arrogance – Possessing all knowledge inevitably leads to arrogance.   Here are some things that northerners have to be proud of – high crime rates, poverty, pollution, over crowded schools, illiteracy,  homelessness, and political corruption.

Greed – They say that life is all about give and take.  In the south we give.  In the north, they take.  While the south was busy inventing refrigeration the north was busy inventing white collar crime and toll roads.  Here are some facts – The 10 greediest states, starting from the bottom, were New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Wisconsin, Connecticut, Minnesota, Colorado, Hawaii and Michigan.   The 10 most generous states were, in descending order, Mississippi, Arkansas, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Alabama, Louisiana, Utah, South Carolina and West Virginia. That pretty much says it all.

These are just a few characteristics that define a true Yankee.

Yankee Children Born in the South – The Truth about Yankee DNA

A frequently asked question is whether a child born in the south to a Yankee couple is officially a southerner.  The answer is NO.  Yankee DNA does not change merely because of a persons location when born.  If it did then yankees would be flying down by the thousands to have their children here. 

Here are the scientific facts:

If a child is born to yankee parents while they are in the south then that child is still a yankee. DNA testing has confirmed this over and over again. Gene therapy has been attempted but donors have been difficult to find so progress in this area has been limited.

If the child marries a southerner they  would have what we would call a mixed marriage.  If the child marries a yankee then they are right back where they started and have made no progress whatsoever.  This rarely happens since yankees hate each other even more than they hate southerners. It would be like eating at McDonalds when you live next to a 5 star restaurant.

Assuming the child of yankee parents marries a southerner, the children produced by that union would be eligible for full southern citizenship, but only under certain conditions.  First of all, the original grandparents (full blooded yankees) need to be either dead or living in a foreign country.  The reason for this is simple.  Genetically, this child is still 50% yankee and any northern influence at this point could tip the scales and create yet another yankee.   If you feel that the child needs grandparents then you may want to consider a surrogate program.  The National Organization of Surrogate Elderly or NOOSE has a great program that provides grandparents in situations like this.  The child will never know the difference and the results are phenomenal.

If two generations have passed and there has been no northern influence in a childs life then you should have yourself an honest to goodness southerner.  But wait.  There is no need to take any chances.  Observe the child and look for the following characteristics –

  • Holding a door open for strangers.
  • Letting a lady go first in line. (applies to men)
  • Waving at neighbors.
  • Respecting people of all races.
  • Treating others like they would want to be treated.
  • Literacy and a desire to go beyond the 10th grade.
  • Calm Even Temper. No sudden outbursts of cursing.
  • Love of family and country.
  • Love for the south and all it stands for.

If they exhibit all these characteristics then it is safe to say that your families heritage has been forever altered.  Congratulations.

That way she would not get stuck in the snow drift. This made her feel much better and sure enough in a little while a snow plow went by and she started to follow it.

As she followed the snow plow she was feeling very proud as they continued weaving and turning down what would have been dangerous roads. After quite some time had passed the snow plow stopped and the driver got out and came back to her car and asked her to roll down her window.

Every time he would see a yankee walking along the road, he would swerve to hit him, there would be a loud “THUMP” and then he would swerve back onto the road.

“No problem,” said the Priest, “I have learned to put others ahead of myself and I am humble enough to sleep in the barn for an evening.” With that he departed to the barn and the others bedded down for the night.

Moments later a knock was heard at the door; the farmer opened the door. There stood the Priest.

“What’s wrong?” asked the farmer.

He replied, “I am grateful to you , but I can’t sleep in the barn. There is a cow and a pig in the barn and the smell is just more than I can stand.”

His Buddhist friend agrees to switch places with him. But a few minutes later there is a knock on the door.

“What’s wrong, now?” the farmer asks.

The Buddhist replies, “I too am grateful for your helping us out but there is a cow and a pig in the barn and the stench and filth is more than I can bear!”

The Northerner cursed and complained, but went out to the barn. Moments later there was another knock on the farmers door. Frustrated, the farmer opened the door, and there stood…. the pig and the cow.

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 were hiding.

The Southerner knocked on the door and said, “Ticket, please.”

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?”

A stupid yankee (redundant) went down to Texas on vacation. Late one afternoon he
decided to go for a drink at his hotel’s bar. Swinging a leg over the stool he
calls out, “Bartender, I’d like a beer.”
The bartender asks, “You want a Texas size beer or a regular beer?”
Without hesitation the northerner answers, “I want it Texas sized.”
The bartender goes to get the back and brings back a barrel of beer. The
yankee looks in surprise at the size of his beer. “Well, if I’m going to
drink all this beer I’d better get some peanuts.”
“Texas size or regular size?” The bartender asks.
Nodding the yankee says, “Texas size of course.”
The barkeep leaves and brings back a bushel basket of peanuts and puts it
next to the stupid yankee. A long time passes and the barrel of beer is almost empty
and the peanuts gone. The yankee asks the bartender, “Where’s the bathroom?”
The bartender points down a hallway. “Just go down that hall and take the first
door on the left.”
The yankee stumbles and staggers down the hall but instead of taking the
first door on the left he takes the first door on the right. He goes into the
dark room looking for a light switch and falls into the hotel swimming pool.
“HELP ME! HELP ME!” He cries out. The bartender runs into the room and turns on the
light.
The yankee in a panic cries out. “Don’t flush it! Don’t flush it!”
