The Most: North Carolina Brackets-- Part 3: Bless Your Heart and Y'all

Continuing With the Our State North Carolina Brackets.

"BLESS YOUR HEART"  vs. "CATAWAMPUS

When these two get together, throw out the dictionary.  Sure, plenty of people think they know what "bless your heart" means, but they only truly understand it when it is used in the right situation.

Meanwhile, catawampus means "askew,"  diagonal.

Well, I sure didn't know what catawampus meant.


"Y'ALL  vs. "-VUHL/-BURUH"

Y'all could win it all.  Its ubiquitous.  Really, you have to go out of your way to say "you all."

Then again, "vuhl" and '-buruh" allow you to spot out-of-towners.  Point at Greenville or Asheboro on a map.  If a person says "Green-ville" or "Ashe-burrow" the jig is up.

Good Stuff.  --RoadDog
