The difference in manners North and South

Trooper pulls over an 80 year old lady and in the course of events learns she has three pistols in her car or on her person (one in her purse), he asks "What are you afraid of?" She replies "Not aF@#cking thing!"

I often was asked what prompted me to move from 20 years of Boston taxi driving to New Orleans taxi driving during those 14 years. I would joke and say "I got tired of crooked politicians".

Once a man asked me what I found different about New Orleans traffic from Boston traffic. I said "In Boston they throw the bird more whimsically." He said, "Yeah I guess so, I don't know if an armed society is a safer society, but it is clearly a more polite society."

It is at least when people don't ask stupid questions, I guess.
