    Lea, the phrase is actually that somebody’s got a “bee in their bonnet.” which means that they’re awful angry over somethin’. I don’t feel like putting a lot, but a few include,
    “It’s hotter than two possums makin’ love in a wool sock.”
    “It’s hotter than a nun out here!”
    “I’m just as fine as froghair!”

    “The devil’s beating his wife.”

    (means it’s raining while the sun is shining. happens a lot during the summertime in the deep south. I work with guy from New York. He was down here in the Baton Rouge office one day, and I made that comment during a summer shower, and he didn’t get it. I had to explain it to him over and over and he was still confused. In case you’re a Yankee reading this I will explain once more: The sun represents the devil, and the rain represents tears. Thus, “the devil’s beatin his wife.” And I can’t believe southerners are the ones who gets the “stupid” stereotype.)

    I’m from Georgia and there are a whole lot of sayings we use in regular conversations that aren’t really funny but that most Yankees don’t understand.
    “I’ve got a blue million things to do today.” or “We’ve got a blue million of those.” It just means a great many.
    “I’m starting to get ill.” this does not mean you are getting sick. It just means you are getting angry/frustrated.
    “They’re sitting in tall cotton.” meaning that they are wealthy.
    “Don’t get your knickers in a twist.” don’t get riled up over nothing.
    we also use the word “coke” for any and all sodas, even if it is a pepsi or sprite or other flavor. It is still a “coke.”

  149. Cristy Says:
    June 16th, 2009 at 10:43 pm

    and also, forty eleven can mean the same as blue million. As in, “I’ve got forty eleven things to do today.”

  150. Cristy Says:

    “He didn’t know me from Adam.”

    “He’s so tight, you could stick coal in his butt and have a diamond in two weeks.”

    “Bless their heart.”

    If the answer is obviously yes, but the person wants to be sarcastic “Does a chicken got lips?”

    “Home again, home again, jiggity jig. A kiss and a peck and a hug around your neck.”

    Someone’s tickling you, they tell you to yell “Calf rope” or they ask “You steal sugar?”

    If someones pants are pulled up high-”Here comes old high pockets.”

    About to eat supper-”Puttin on the feedbag”

    My great grandma used to say:

    “You kids are windier than a barrel full of a$$ holes.” (you kids are noisy and talk too much)

    “This knife is so dull you could ride it down the Guyandotte River and back and it wouldn’t cut your a$$.” (dull knife)

    My grandfather would often say:

    “bigger than Pete” as in “He ran that red light bigger than Pete!”

    “Crazier than a bed bug”

    “Shanny boat” actually “shanty boat” (Used to describe something of poor build quality or in severe disrepair like the old makeshift houseboats cobbled together by drifters that traveled the Ohio River back in the day.)

    “Don’t know sh*t from Shinola.” (a reference to an old brand of shoe polish in describing someone who lacks knowledge, intelligence and general good sense.)
