    I hate Nascar. There you go again with what you consider to be derogatory stereotypes ... I have a derogatory stereotype of my own: I guess your reading comprehension is a little low, otherwise you would have noticed the word tribute in the title.

    No, it's just that many Americans don't believe in tribute.

    "Millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute!"



    I don't necessarily agree with that attitude, so I'll see if I can think of something positive about the South.

    1. It's warm here.
    2. We're more autonomous than many other regions of the country.
    3. We have Radio Shack, Texas Instruments, and AT&T headquartered here.

    And there's plenty of space on this forum for ya'll to start a thread to hate on the stuff people find awesome. But this isn't the place for it. This isn't meant to be a discussion on debating the South, its a discussion on celebrating good points of an area people call home.

    If someone came into your celebration and insulted your home, I'll bet you wouldn't take very kindly to it either. Ya'll can relocate the negativity.

    +1. And that's all I'm going to say on that aspect.

    More awesome stuff about the south:

    The Texas Renaissance Festival
    Saying "ya'll" and "howdy" without getting odd looks.
    Wearing cowboy hats around like its normal.
    Seeing a man or police officer riding horseback down the lane right next to the street full of cars.
    Paula Deen.
    Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
    Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.

    Cimarron: maybe Prpl will be your girl-bud
    prplchknz: i don't like it

    Ah, the American South. What can I say? You guys have strong taste buds. You make lots of cream-based sauces and gravys with buscuits and grits, and lots of other beige-colored stuff. It has no flavor. It's like eating water sludge sprinkled with blandspice.

    As for your non-beige foods, they're almost always drowned in fat. It's like eating a crisco caserole made with lard, butter chunks, and globules of chicken fat subtly flavored with blandspice and served with a double thick oil sauce.

    Southern food is way more than just that buddy.

    What about a damned good gumbo, or a crawfish boil, or boiled shrimp for that matter.

    What about boiled peanuts?

    That's not nice.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    Did you actually eat real homemade Southern food, or just go through the drive-thru of Tudor's Biscuit World on a road trip?

    That sounds like cajun. I consider that more of a new orleans thing than a southern thing. At least, that has always been my impression.

    ... boiled peanuts?

    The homemade stuff fits more in the second category. While delicious, it's deadly... and don't deny the ubiquity of chicken fat globules!
