The Queen’s English, American English and then there’s Southern! – Part 2

 Okay, follow the link to get the background behind this line of thought.

Here’s another handy one. The Southern version is “pulling a Dolly Parton”. It basically can be used in place of any English that is saying “trying to saydoactetc. too much into too little”. Think of it in terms of how Dolly Parton herself describes it – “trying to put ten pounds of potatoes into a five pound sack”. You’ll understand that if you have the slightest inkling of who Dolly Parton is.
