    Yes, that was a classic thread - but mine answer was in another thread that was only like 8 posts long - so I took the liberty to copy it below:


    The joke in Mississippi goes like this:

    What do you call a northerner who comes to Mississippi for a visit and returns home?

    A YANKEE!

    What do you call a Northerner who comes to Mississippi for a visit and stays?

    A DAMNYANK!

    I am originially from Eastern Penna and after 23 1/2 years in the Air Force (17 1/2 yrs of that overseas) I moved to Mississippi because my English wife had a sister living here and everytime we came to visit her - we liked it better down here!

    We've been here for 10 years now and I work at the Post Office - right after I started working there, the "good old boys" ( I call them REDNECKS) started calling me DAMNYANK - the rest of the story is history!

    I still answer to DAMNYANK at work to this day!

    I resemble that remark Iceman but at least that old fugly Damnyank and I have made it past 50, and in Damnyanks case, well past. :cool:

    Gee, I used to sing that song (badly) to my ex wife years ago. Brings back scary memories. :(

    I feel like a 20 year old, just can't find one though. :D

    I don't know smokie after seeing both of you guys pics, it is fairly obvious both of you guys hit every branch falling down off the ugly tree.

    course i have no room to talk have a birthmark side of my face that looks like a dog banging a camel.

    Never having seen a dog banging a camel, I can't comment on that, as much as I would like too. :eek:

    But I will say that damnyank hit a few more branches than me on the way down. :D

    Okay guys - I resemble those remarks - well most of them, but once again "Mr. Cold as Ice " - I have to remind you that Smokie and I may be old and ugly (and also fugly in my case) - but we have posted our pictures - come on Ice - show us what a dog banging a camel looks like. :D

    You can't be afraid that my big ears, Smokie's bald head and all those branch marks from the ugly tree left either of us better looking than you! :eek:

    Again, for about the umpteenth time:
    Iceman, I dare you to post your picture!! :p :p :p

    <dy thinks - why does Ice continue to comment (I do not consider it flaming) on me & Smokie when Ice won't post his pic? He is too unblievably well educated to be so insecure?>:p

    nah, I just like teasing you two guys as I consider both of you to be friends of mine.

    as far as my pic, I am pretty vain about it I know. I usually will not allow pictures to be taken with me, it's hard growing up as a kid with this kind of thing, nuff said.

    Naw - don't lighten up - ain't no problem with you (or anyone else) teasing me - I just wasn't aware of your birthmark and I know better than to go there. Had I known - I would've never gone there!

    Now - next insult??
    ;)
