A bad rap for Southern Cuisine

During water aerobics I overheard two ladies talking about taking friends out to dinner.

Joan, a retiree transplant from New York, taught in culinary schools for years but quipped about Southern cuisine to her friend from Connecticut.

“A typical saying down here is ‘You kill’em we cook’em’."

“What do you mean?”

“It refers to road kill.”

“What’s ‘road kill’?”

“Anything that’s hit alongside the road.”

“You’re kidding. Really?”

“Yea.”

“Are we eating ‘road kill’?”

“Of course not.”
There was a sigh of relief.

The next week, Joan received a thank you gift from her Connecticut friend.
Inside the package was a box marked “Road-Kill Helper”.

Joan wasn’t amused.


I wish I'd sent the box...

What's your opinion? I'd love to hear from you at aitken.helen@gmail.com.
