I thought that sharing this might bring a smile, chuckle, or even an outburst of laughter to my readers. You see, I'm from California, and moved to Mississippi in 2006. My inlaws are from Mississippi, and I'm hoping that you can find the humor in some of these. Of course, some of these are just silly. However, many seems to be true! This is all in fun and I hope that I don't offend anyone with this. As I said, I live in Mississippi, my kids have grown up here, husband was born here, and my inlaws are from here.
