This one makes even more sense when it's said with a thick German/Yiddish/Russian accent.

I guess we hillbillies are the only "minority" that can still take a joke.I still use terms that I learned from my parents and grandparents. "Shortly" means within the next hour or 2. "Dreckly" which means the same as directly,could mean 2hours or 2 weeks depending on who said it.A "right smart bit" or "right smart" means a lot. "I'll be dogged" means surprised or annoyed. "Get shut of" means to get rid of or sell. Btw to clear up a misconception any self respectin' southerner would never use the word "Ya'll unless they were talking about more than one person. My Grandfather used the phrase "I guyeah" which means the same thing as "I think". Russell (A Hillbilly all my life)

Gramps,did you ever get "whupped with a peachtree limb"? Or go the "eye doctor" or the "tooth dentist"? I bet you and I could carry on a conversation and the rest of the guys wouldn't have a clue as to what we were saying. But it would all be in English. [Linked Image]

How about the following:
"GOOD NIGHT!" which means "Gosh!"
"I'm fixin' to go to the store" which means I'm going to the store.
"bowa" which means boy.
"hee-ah" which means here. As in, "Come hee-ah bowa."
"hyeah" which also means here. This version is a bit more dignified than the "hee-ah" version.
"I te' you what!", or "Boy le' me tell ya" is a way of letting someone know that you mean what you are saying.
"yonder" which means "over there"

Y'all come back now, Ya hee-ah,
Doc
