Ok, I'm erasing my little joking post here, and putting in something more serious, see if I can get things started.  The first thing that I think of when I think of Southern Gentlemen Is "honor".  Simple word, complex concept.  Both "personal" honor, and living by a "code of honor".   I'm sure others can expound on this concept more articulately than I can....

The only thing distinctive about the south is grits. Other than that, they're just Americans who talk funny. Well, maybe a bit friendlier, but not more so than Iowans or Minnesotans.

ps, ole - everbody eats grits - ya'll just call it Cream o' Wheat. And put butter and sugar on it. (Salt & pepper on my grits, please, and sugar in my tea.)
No. Not everybody eats grits. Haven't touched anything like it since I was allowed a choice. (Usually, what ma put on the table, you ate -- or didn't.). I wouldn't dream of criticizing anyone who actually enjoys grits. Hey. I like liver. And anchovies. And pickled pork hocks. Oh yes. Have yet to see a northern breakfast menu that offers Cream o' Wheat.

Grits are that tasteless congealing glop right next to the fries and the steak. Gimme your steak and you can have my grits.

Putting salt and pepper on wallpaper paste makes it taste like salted and peppered wallpaper paste. There ain't enough salt and pepper to make grits taste good.

Corn. Cream o' Wheat or farina, is made from wheat. Grits is made from corn.

When I lived in Kenya, there was a Kenyan version of grits called posho. I hated it. Even salt and pepper or sugar wouldn't help that stuff.

I think we need a new thread here, entitled "Grits", ;):D

How about if we leave the grits for dinner (or breakfast tomorrow morning), and get back to the Southern Gentleman question.  I am most anxious to hear what people have to say.  Having lived both south and north, I've found quite a difference in manners and values, and am interested to know others' thoughts and experiences.

"Miss Joanie likes her grits thin with molasses". 

Hmmmm- will have to back with you on that one, LOL.  :P

Sorry for being so anal there before :shock: - yes, let's get back to grits:cool:.  I hereby declare this The Grits Thread.  Grits and Southern Gentlemen, ummmm, delightful combination!

That's it, I like my grits with Southern Gentlemen on the side :D!
