hey Gang, I stumbled onto this tonight, after the nine kids dwindled down to just two...mine. Plus, after having seen Lukas Nelson and his band "Promise of the Real" this week, and seeking to find some videos(Great show I might add, cool guys, got their cd...autographed it, and talked a bit, asked if they knew of JJ grey and Mofro, talked Hammond B3 and of course they knew JJ,) all of this plus our friends dying to see the show in May, made me think of the archived shows, and what one was it that JJ tells the story during the superBowl gig, where his Dad saw him on tv and heard him cuss ?
Anyways, one of you bright souls will know the answer I know it.  Oh hell again, what about the post on here or the old site, that talked about southern cussing...the use of the words shiiit, f_ck, god damn..... man I can't remember where I saw that...anyone know of I am talking about ?

Oh god yes Richard. An absolutely awesome show. JohnDude taped it, skotdee transferred it, and there was not a sober person in the house that night including me, my trophy wife, john, skot, liz, oh shit way too many to name; AND including near all, if not all, the guys on stage.

The Social, Orlando, Feb 24, 2008. Three nights in a row...2 at Skipper's Smokehouse in Tampa and then an hour or so east in Orlando for the 3rd.  Kicked ass.  The song was Junior (track 17) I guarantee you it is one of the hottest Junior's you've ever heard.  And while you're there, listen to Harp & Drums too cause it's one of the best as well.

Ah yes. How could I forget that?  That's where I explain how in the South we learned the proper grammatical uses for the word "shit" when we were in 3rd grade. (Some counties in Fla it was 4th grade; I won't name names or nothing but anyone on here from Sumter (Hog) county or Groveland or anywhere in Levy county will know what I'm talkin bout.) (Central Floridian inside joke there y'all, sorry.)

Here you go Richard:

In the South profanity is not meant to offend; it's just part of our everyday vocabulary.  It's part of our blood.

We don't say:  "The dog escaped and ran down the street."
We say: "That goddam dog dun run out the door and took off down the fucking street!"

Doesn't that sound, well...better?
 
Lastly, if not most importantly, the word "shit" is NOT a profanity! Anyone born in the South will tell you that. In the South, it's interchangeable with anything. It's just part of the vocabulary.  Not everyone is comfortable saying "fuck" at anytime, anywhere.  But "shit"......sheiiiiiiiiiiiiiit

In the South, we teach the proper uses of the word shit at an early age, in grade school.  Here you go...
(put on your best deep-South accent)

Noun: "Don't step in that pile of dog shit."

Verb: "I ain't shitting you, I done seen a flying seegar."

Adverb: "I done so shitty on my driving test they done took my fucking driver's license away."

Pronoun: "I shit, you shit, he shit, she shit, they shit, we shit, it shit."

Personal Pronoun: "That fucker over there thinks he's the shit."

Proper Noun: "Mr. Shithead"

Adjective: "I got so shit-faced at the Mofro New Year's Eve show that I threw up on JJ."

Preposition: "To get to the fishin' hole, we gonna have to hack through all this shit."
