    Things people put up for sale on places like Facebook or Craigslist. Some make me laugh, seen one ad today where this person had a Fridge Raider for sell. Lot's of for sell things not for sale but for sell. Car for sell in good condition, just needs a new door, fender, hood, engine and has some electrical issues or the like. Makes me wonder how these people make it thru life at times or are their enough suckers out there that buy these for sell things. I bet a job interview with some of them would be a hoot. Wife and myself been going thru those sites looking for a rolltop desk she wants. By the prices some ask for one they must be made of gold.

    I find this entire thread extremely ironic.

    I used to work with a guy that had a portion of an old taped Tradio call in that we’d play and laugh our arses off. This lady was trying to sell a couch and kept saying she had a “sexual” for sale. The host made it even worse as he kept asking questions to make her say it over and over. “What kind of couch?” “ It’s a nice gently used sexual.”

    Understandably there’s humor to be found... but honestly I think back to my grand parents and great grand parents. Education wise .. maybe 6th grade or lucky they went as far as the eighth . Which back then .. kids got what they could but they was needed to farm & work in general. Not much stock put into education and definitely not the English language.

    I remember a pillow pronounced “piller” or a wasp called a “wasper”.
    Just a whole slew of words that some how got an “er” added to the end of it...lol.

    Guess I heard it so much growing up I don’t pay a lot of attention to it even now. It’s a little like some of Jeff Foxworthy’s .. you might be a redneck. It’s a language & spelling to itself.

    Back when I was young we had one of the only telephones in our neighborhood. One gal's mom would send her to our house if she needed bad to make a call. Gal always ask if she could news the phone.

    Yep.... then you have the infamous taters & maters ... short version of tomaters and potaters.

    The next degree of worse..is worser. As in grannies feelin worser today then yesterday.

    Also might as well throw in a a few “go get” or “done did” into the mix.

    Another honorable mention ... the word “show” is actually a place. As instead of saying we went to the theatre and watched a movie.... you simply went to the show last night.

    Funny thing is this is universal from one end of the state to the other. If you were born here.. you speak Kentuckian and don’t think twice about it.. lol.

    Heck this is my dad right now JD. Honestly he’s an old throwback mountain man. He just makes up words. Funny part is he’ll talk to crowds at events where he dresses up in his frontier clothes and they’ll just look at each other like, “What the heck is he talkin about?” He’s a hoot no doubt!

    This reminds me of two teen age girls at a birthday party I
    went to last week. The two teens were seated at the same table as
    I was,but behind me.
    One of the older ladies was speaking of her husband and said,"Look
    at him grinning like a old possum".
    The teen girls looked at each other and one asked " Whats grinning like
    a old possum mean ?
    Then the other girl asked " Whats a possum ??
    I ALMOST LAUGHED OUT LOUD
