The Secret Southern Slang

I tell you this because I care, dear northern friends. Many of you have started saying this cute little southern colloquialism and run the risk of saying it to someone southern.

Bless your heart.

In the words of Inago Montoya “I do not think it means what you think it means” – in fact I know it doesn’t. You may think you are being adorable but you are actually calling someone an idiot.

Bless your heart.

That’s a southern lady’s way to insult someone and still look like a lady. It’s not very ladylike to call someone a whore, but luckily they have this saying which covers so many occasions for them. Use it with caution!

This has been a public service announcement from DeepFriedYankee, a “damn Yankee” surviving in the buckle of the Bible Belt.

    DF Yankee – Stop spilling all our secrets 🙂
    Thanks for the laugh. I had the opposite experience – a Southern kid in a New York school. I’m not over that yet.
