I've said almost all of those.  That's just run of the mill southern stuff.  My redneck colloquialisms are much more entertaining, but they might actually be what your average sailor or truck driver says with a y'all thrown in here and there.

But like redneck colloquialisms... It is the artful application of the words that make it successful - Anyone can swear like a muleskinner.

Am I being Gaslighted here? Is anyone else seeing this or is this one of my routine acid flashbacks from the early 90's?
@Frank Cannon

No, I see the F bombs writ large as well.  Must be some kind of formatting @Dexter is engaged with.
