Top Ten Ways to Annoy an American Southerner

The Top Ten

1 Correct their grammar

I do this all the time. - Hermione_Granger220

Oh, America, how I South could I do this to American wish all time the. - PositronWildhawk

Grammar Nazis piss everybody off

2 Say that the North is better

I was planning to take a vacation in there before actually moving to the north and staying there for the rest of my life until death has come by(I might be in a different location). The south is no doubt an atrocious place to be in. The stereotype is actually true after all... I know, this is a comedy list... - Kevinsidis

Well it's true! The north is so much better! Education, food, air, cleanliness, cities, people, etc.

Well, the South definitely wins in food and hospitality, but the North is cool too. - ethanmeinster

3 Call them "rednecks"

Some of them would like it, because the term "Redneck" comes from the coal-miners Labor Union movement.
At the big political rallies of the day, those in favor of forming a coal-mine worker's Labor Union wore red bandanas around their necks, so that they were readily visible in the crowd.

Anyone reading this from the Southern United States: I found this while searching for...well, never mind. It is in NO WAY intended to offend, in fact it's quite sweet.

4 Hold up a sign promoting abortion

That's not a good idea in the land of Jesus fish symbols and religious billboards. - ethanmeinster

5 Call them "Billy Bob Joe"
6 Tell them that NASCAR is not a sport

That would be very similar to telling somebody from California that surfing is not really a sport.

It really isn't though.

How dare you - lbelle0527

7 Call their cousin their "girlfriend"

Wouldn’t that annoy anyone, not just a Southerner?

8 Offer them only beer, fried chicken and watermelon

Don't forget to add country-sized desserts! - ethanmeinster

9 Ask if their mom is Carrie Underwood

Yeah, and my dad is Luke Bryan. - ethanmeinster

10 Hit them with a banjo

Why would anyone want to be hit with a banjo in the first place! It would annoy me, and I live in the north!

That annoys everyone, doesn't it? - ethanmeinster

The Contenders

11 Tell them that the the state of Mississippi was named after a hippy's wife

Mrs Hippy. Ho ho!

12 Teach them about gun control.

The last school shooting in Britain was in Scotland Dunblane, in 1996.
There has been no school shootings in Britain since 1996
We do not have gun stores, we do not sell guns in supermarkets.
We do have knife crime but there has been crime with knifes forever its more heard on the news lately, there isn't going to be a school stabbing.

Guns are for sport.
