Southern cooking so farking bad for you but Christ on a Stick* is it delicious.

Southern cooking is perfectly fine if you work 14 hours in the sun doing manual farming labor. Not so good if you're sitting in front of a TV for 14 hours.

I used to drink coca-cola out of ignorance. Then after forcing myself to drink Diet Coke for like a couple of weeks, I couldn't understand why the diet version wasn't enough for anyone. Drinking the high cal version just seems pointless.

I guess if you want to fark up your metabolism, go for it. Or you could drink some water. It's that stuff in your toilet. But clean.

Those states must be full of people like a friend of mine. Whenever he calls me to tell me he has "discovered" this really great new restaurant he wants to take me to, the next words out of his mouth are always "you get a huge plate loaded with stuff and it's cheap!" For some reason, the description never involves how the food actually tastes.

Because, you know, breakfast isn't good unless you get 9 pancakes, a biscuit as big as your head, 4 eggs, a platter of bacon wrapped around sausages, and enough gravy-covered hash browns to choke a horse.

I love the cooking, but my gall bladder does not. I had to give up fried gizzards to protect the gold crowns in my mouth. Dentist "Are you eating sand?"

It's not the southern cooking.

It's refined and processed fast food

Just a side note, the nearest OG to my part of Mississippi is in Hattiesburg, an hour away.

It is also number one for food stamp usage. I think a requirement to receive food stamps should be classes in nutrition and basic cooking skills.

Get out of here with your logic.

I took a trip driving through the heart of the south a couple years ago and I got to admit - holy mutha, the size of people down there!
No one walks anywhere instead they have the biggest collection of Rascals scootin' around in the world.
Course it's friggin' hot as hell, so no one's in a rush to go anywhere.
Might have something to do with it.

It is also the has the highest African American population. Ethnic food plays a role.

You know a person is from Mississippi when they pronounce it as a two-syllable word. Burns less calories that way.

I've lived in the south for most of my life and call south Alabama home.
Despite how close we are, there's nothing I can think of that would make me trust a person from Mississippi.....nothing.

Is that not normal? I had that for breakfast today. Biscuits and gravy is a great breakfast, if you aren't a lazy piece of shiat and actually move around in the morning.
 
2012-08-17 11:25:50 PM
At one time in the south a big breakfast was essential because you labored on a farm. Unfortunately labor changed and food consumption stayed the same.

Yeah, pretty normal, even here in Florida.

No kidding. A thick gravy and biscuit breakfast is the minimum requirement to get your Rascal Scooter or HoverRound moving in the morning.

Those machines don't work on bacon and cheese alone!

must be a cultural thing. Do northern states citizens eat gravy and biscuits for bkfast?
 
2012-08-17 11:44:58 PM
I come from a fat state and its very odd how use I am seeing fat and obese people every day that when traveling to other states I'm a startled at the large amount of healthy people compared to fat people.


More motivation to loose a few pounds myself before ending up the size of a small car.

No, usually just buttered toast and sadness.
