We’ve all heard someone use southern slang. Heavens to Betsy, maybe you use it yourself! But do you really know what you’re saying? Slang stems from deeper meanings that can be quite different from the phrases we say today. Are you confident you know what you mean when you say you’re happy as a dead pig in the sunshine? Maybe you were raised with these sayings, but did anyone ever explain what they meant?
Test your knowledge of southern slang and see how much you really know. Have you got the gumption? Or, goodness gracious, maybe you’ve been slinging southern phrases in all the wrong ways.
Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.

In fact, people who are not from the United States imitate us with either a cowboy impersonation or a lazy Southern drawl. There are 24 unique dialects throughout this country, and the Southern dialect of this quiz is only one of them. Others include Upper Midwestern (Dontcha know), and Boston Urban (Pahk tha cah = "park the car").
