I’m experiencing quite a bit of culture shock in my neck of the woods in Florida. “But it’s just like the North, only warmer!”, you say. Nope – I’m in an demographic enclave that has a “Southern cultural orientation.”
I’m wondering about the decals many people in my part of the Orlando metro area have in their truck windows. Specifically:
Random phrases in the front window, reading something like “A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT,” “DOWN FOR THE COUNT,” “MEAT AND POTATOS,” “COME AND GET IT,” and so on.
Rolling memorials, not just to #3, but to average people. One out of every 20 trucks 'round these parts has a rear window memorial, something like “IN MEMORY OF BETTY LOU GOAD 1968-2001.”
What’s the deal?
