Him: "I don't know, both."

Reminds me of:

"Do you look at a menu and say, 'OK.'"

Name the movie (big hint: Rodney Dangerfield)

Ryan, Back to School? (not 100% sure)

Matt, I feel ya'. I live in the same basic region of the country as you. Had someone tell me how good deep fried PB&J was not too long ago.

You know Will, I'm sure that stuff is good. I won't deny it...I live 3 blocks from a Corky's, and when I open my windows I smell barbeque that I'd condiser killing for. And every once in awhile...I'll indulge and have some ribs or chicken.

But I just can't grasp the unending "stuff your face" mentality here in the South. I've never lived in an area like this, where people seem to have given up all hope of a healthy lifestyle and actually seem to be attempting to commit suicide by eating. It's unreal.

I know exactly what you mean Matt. Around here it's deep fried anything. Deep fried fish/chicken/turkey, deep fried green tomatoes, deep fried corn, I've even seen deep fried candy bars. If we can fit it in the frier, we can eat it.

Born and raised in southeast Missouri (Sikeston; not too far from you in Memphis, Matt), went to school in Texas, currently living in southwest Missouri: I understand everything that is posted here.

I allow myself to be disgusted twice a week, by going to Wal-Mart and seeing all the obese people on the lard carts (the scooters intended for handicapped customers).

Those things are hysterical Chris. At the Kroger near my house, I have never once seen an older/elderly person in one of those...but I see obese younger people in them all the time.

It must be comforting to them, knowing that they're motoring towards their death at no more than 2mph.

To never need a lard cart and to never have to cry at the bottom of a flight of stairs for about 100 years of life=my physical fitness goals and reason for crossfitting.

You guys forgot how you have to put salt pork into perfectly good fresh green beans and deep fried corn meal hush puppies with every meal....man do I miss the pig-pickins and shrimp boils in North Carolina.

I live in rural Southwest VA. Everything is deep fried. I get made fun of for trying to eat "healthy".

Matt,

This is what I over heard while walking behind a Mother and son the other day:

11 year old boy: Mom... Mom.

Mom on cell phone: Hold on... what!?

11 year old boy: I'm hungry.

Mom on cell phone: Well I don't have time right now, just go home and microwave yourself a Pizza Pocket!

Mom returns to her phone conversation as she and her son part ways at the next street corner. What a sad, sad sight...
