    ITEM#: 10142977

    STEVE MITCHELL was born in North Carolinian, and worked as a columnist for thePalm Beach Post. Sam C. Rawls is a Florida cracker and was the chief cartoonist for thePalm Beach Post, and is a past president of the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists.
    The laugh sensation that swept the nation, How to Speak Southern and More How to Speak Southern, is now collected in one complete–and completely hilarious–volume. Embraced by Southerners everywhere and dedicated to all Yankees in the hope that it will teach them to talk right, this uproarious book decodes “Suthun” wit and wisdom for “Nawthun” upstarts everywhere. From “aig” (a breakfast food that may be fried, scrambled, boiled, or poached) to “zackly” (as in “precisely”), here’s just a sampling of what you’ll find inside:

    ATTAIR: Contraction used to indicate the specific item desired. “Pass me attair gravy, please.”
    EVERWHICHAWAYS: To be scattered in all directions. “You should have been there when the train hit that chicken truck. Them chickens flew everwhichaways.”
    YONTNY: Do you want any. “Yontny more corn bread?”

    Funny as well as informative, this laugh-out-loud dictionary will keep you laughing and learning–no matter where you fall on the Mason-Dixon Line!
