In the South, we believe in manners and politeness. We love “yes ma’am” and “no ma’am,” “please,” and “thank you;” and sometimes we’re so polite we don’t even say real cuss words. In fact, we’ve created quite the vernacular of fake cuss words – words that aren’t quite as offensive as the real thing, but words that still get your dadgum point across.
