Ozark words

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

Here are some words and what they mean in our remote Ozark hills.

RAM- male sheep

Screen saver- thread you fix the hole in the screen door with, so the flies can't get in.

Hard Drive- bumpy road trip

software- long johns

I have more, but I can't remember them right off the bat.

And one of my personal favorites is I Got Tears in My Ears from Lying on My Back in My Bed While I Cried Over You. That one just gets me every single time I hear it!
