Hey bloggy people, there's something urgent I need to share with you.
It's about a new language that I've been learning.
Maybe it's a language you have heard before?
But speaking for myself this is new. And almost daily I've had a crash course lesson in the language I shall call, KENTUCKYNESE.
You see, almost immediately after I started my job I noticed things being said that I had never heard before.
Not just one thing....
Not just two things....
But so many that eventually I started a list.
And since I'm learning a new language, maybe you should as well. Or maybe you've heard these before? PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
Here is my comprehensive list of KENTUCKYNESE thus far:
1) She's walking like dead lice is falling off of her. (When I heard this one I thought my co-worker may have misspoken. I mean what the heck does THAT mean? Well, apparently it means you are walking slow. WHO KNEW?)
2) Fair to midland. (When you ask someone, "how are you today?" Did you know that some people might reply, "fair to midland" Did you even know this was a response? Uh, not me.)
3) Somethings rotten in Denmark. (I think this one refers to fishy behavior. I think.)
4) It's a comin' a frog-strangler. (It's going to rain a ton)
5) It's gonna rain to beat the band. (Another way to say it's gonna rain a lot)
6) He's meaner than a strip-ed snake. (Evidently he's really mean)
6) Biggest duck in the puddle. (I think this refers to someone thinking they are big stuff.)
7) They can worry warts off a frog. (Apparently this refers to a great worrier.)
8) My stomach thinks my throats been cut. (A disturbing way to say you're hungry.)
9) It's like looking for a pig in a poke. (I'm just not even sure.)
10) You're grinning like an opossum eating briers. (Up to no good?)
11) Using dirty Kotex instead of gasoline. (NO CLUE)
And the last thing I need to explain. Here in these parts when you have a package of crackers, say packaged peanut butter crackers, or even the crackers with cheese in them, they are referred to as NABS.
You guys, it's KENTUCKYNESE.
