I done been enlightened

ok, so I am a transplanted Northerner, but I DO like my grits now. When I done moved down here, I was a bit quizzicle and apprehensive, cause dammmmm they shore did make a fuss over them. When I finally did get me some, I really did loves them, but when I was-a growin up up North, Cream of Wheats and Cocoa Cream of Wheats were popular.

And, ya has to find just the right place to get them when yer eatin out, cause everybody does em differnt. Dang tootin, they shore'nuf can be troublesome when ya dont liken the grits they is thinking was the best'un ever. Best to shove nasty ones off'n the floor (by accident, 'course).

I found this while perusing the web, and found it quite correct, er, shall I say SC (ie changing Politically Correct to Southern Correct), which is almighty important should ya'll wanna live down here. Naw, pay'tention and git this straight, ya'hear?

9. Thou shalt not put syrup on thy Grits.
