My best GRIT friend, Ang, send this to me. I love her and her goofy jokes. So do tell, send me a comment and let me know what YOU are....



Have a laugh and enjoy!!Some of us Southerners are pretty skeptical of horoscopes and thepeople who read them. If we are to ever fully understand all the starsigns and the people they represent, we need symbols that all trueSoutherners understand: See the list below...

OKRA (Dec 22 - Jan 20) Are tough on the outside but tender on theinside. Okras have tremendous influence. An older Okra can look backover his life and see the seeds of his influence everywhere. You can dosomething good each day if you try.

CHITLIN (Jan 21 - Feb 19) Chitlins come from humble backgrounds. AChitlin, however, will make something of himself if he is motivated andhas lots of seasoning. In dealing with Chitlins, be careful they maysurprise you. They can erupt like Vesuvius. Chitlins are best withCatfish and Okra.

BOLL WEEVIL (Feb 20 - March 20) You have an overwhelming curiosity.You're unsatisfied with the surface of things, and you feel the need tobore deep into the interior of everything. Needless to say, you are veryintense and driven as if you had some inner hunger. You love to staybusy and tend to work too much. Nobody in their right mind is going tomarry you, so don't worry about it.

MOON PIE (March 21 - April 20) You're the type that spends a lot oftime on the front porch. A cinch to recognize the physical appearance ofMoon Pies. Big and round are the key words here. You should marryanybody who you can get remotely interested in the idea. It's not goingto be easy. You always have a big smile and are happy. This might be theyear to think about aerobics. Maybe not.

POSSUM (April 21 - May 21) When confronted with life's difficulties,possums have a marked tendency to withdraw and develop adon't-bother-me-about-it attitude. Sometimes you become so withdrawn,people actually think you're dead. This strategy is probably notpsychologically healthy but seems to work for you. You are a rare breed.Most folks love to watch you work and play. You are a night person andmind your own business.

CRAWFISH (May 22 - June 21) Crawfish is a water sign. If you work inan office, you're hanging around the water cooler. Crawfish prefer thebeach to the mountains, the pool to the golf course, and the bathtub tothe living room. You tend not to be particularly attractive physically,but you have very, very good heads.

COLLARDS (June 22 - July 23) Collards have a genius for communication.They love to get in the melting pot of life and share their essence withthe essence of those around them. Collards make good social workers,psychologists, and baseball managers. As far as your personal life goes,if you are Collards, stay away from Crawfish. It just won't work. Saveyourself a lot of heartache.

CATFISH (July 24 - Aug 23) Catfish are traditionalists in matters of the heart, although one's whiskers may cause problems for loved ones.You Catfish are never easy people to understand. You run fast. You workand play hard. Even though you prefer the muddy bottoms to the clearsurface of life, you are liked by most. Above all else, Catfish shouldstay away from Moon Pies.

GRITS (Aug 24 - Sept 23) Your highest aim is to be with others like yourself. You like to huddle together with a big crowd of other Grits.You love to travel though, so maybe you should think about joining aclub. Where do you like to go? Anywhere they have cheese, gravy, bacon,butter, or eggs and a good time. If you can go somewhere where they haveall these things, that serves you well. You are pure in heart.

BOILED PEANUTS (Sept 24 - Oct 23) You have a passionate desire to helpyour fellow man. Unfortunately, those who know you best, your friendsand loved ones, may find that your personality is much too salty, andtheir criticism will affect you deeply because you are really muchsofter than you appear. You should go right ahead and marry anybody youwant to because in a certain way, yours is a charmed life. On the roadof life, you can be sure that people will always pull over and stop foryou.

BUTTER BEAN (Oct 24 - Nov 22) Always invite a Butter Bean to a partybecause Butter Beans get along well with everybody. You, as a ButterBean, should be proud. You've grown on the vine of life, and you feel athome no matter what the setting. You can sit next to anybody. However,you, too, shouldn't have anything to do with Moon Pies.

ARMADILLO (Nov 23 - Dec 21) You have a tendency to develop a toughexterior, but you are actually quite gentle and kind inside. A goodevening for you? Old friends, a fire, some roots, fruit, worms, andinsects. You are a throwback. You're not concerned with today's fashionsand trends. You're not concerned with anything about today. You'realmost prehistoric in your interests and behavior patterns. You probablywant to marry another Armadillo, but a Possum is another somewhat kinkymating possibility. Posted by Picasa
