Recommended Posts

I had a friend from college who used to say, "Geez Manetti." I've never heard anyone else say this before (or since), and I just looked it up - apparently it's "a thing," sort of like "Geez Louise."

Jul 1, 2011 - "Twanglish Lesson: Southern Cussemisms" on real-southern.com (see the comment section)

Apr 15, 2010 - "A Word To Capture the Carolinas" by Elizabeth Jensen on carrborocommons.mj.unc.edu

NB - The only term on this website that's forbidden is "pop" for soft drink, so all you folks from Cleveland, please keep it in your pants and/or get a room.
