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?
What do you call a Northerner who comes to Mississippi for a visit and stays?
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!
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.
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!
Again, for about the umpteenth time: Iceman, I dare you to post your picture!!
<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?>
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
