I am pretty familiar with the American South. I have lived there and elsewhere and even outside of the US, where people in other countries refer to ANY American (US) as a Yankee.
Georgia is spelling for Alabama too? I knew South was different but that much
Well, people in Georgia pick on people of Alabama (many jokes) and then the people in Alabama have Mississippi to pick on. There are little differences, but basically, if Georgia did not have the large metropolitan area of Atlanta, the remaining parts of Georgia would be pretty similar to that of Alabama and South Carolina in my humble opinion. I had lived in about 4 different southern states, so I think I know that from some first hand experiences.
Anyone care to debate this, please do.
I have never seen the movie nor read the book...I tend to read true life...Deliverance was created in the imagination of James Dickey (which makes one wonder what was on his mind) and acted out by Hollywood rats....It's not a true story...In case you were not aware of that....Neither was Texas Chain Saw...
Not sure where the joke is myself in the thread and being born a US "southerner". I have a very dry sense of humor, so I usually pick up on some things, at least I think I do.
Deliverance is a well known movie, but I haven't watched it in about 2 decades, so needless to say, I do not recall any of the famous quotes. I do recognize "Dueling Banjos" when it is played and understand what it often refers too, though. IIRC, the movie came out in 1972. :D
