The owner of a golf course was confused about paying an invoice, so

he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help. He called
her into his office and said, 'You graduated from the University of Georgia
and I need some help. If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much
would you take off?'

The secretary thought a moment, and then replied,

'Everything but my earrings.'

A group of Alabama friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That
night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck.

'Where's Henry?' the others asked.

'Henry had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail,' the successful hunter replied.'

You left Henry laying out there and carried the deer back?' they inquired.

'A tough call,' nodded the hunter.

'But I figured no one is going to steal Henry!'

West Virgina:

A man had a flat tire, pulled onto the side of the road, and proceeded to
put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he
got back in the car to wait.
A passerby studied the scene as he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back.
He asked the fellow what the problem was.

The man replied, 'I have a flat tire.'
The passerby asked, 'But what's with the flowers?'

The man responded, 'When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front
and flares in the back. I never did understand it neither.'

And my favorite:
You can say what you want about the South, but you
never hear of anyone retiring and moving North...
