1. The Atlanta School Board, sensing that Oakland is about to cash in with the Feds by labeling Black slang, "Ebonics," as a language, has decided to pursue some of that endless taxpayer money pipeline through Washington by designating Southern slang, or "Hickphonics," as a language to be taught in all Southern schools.

    A classical Scots variation on this theme in Glaswegian dialect is
    "Seezapunnaburrafurramurra!" This phrase, when broken down, translates as
    Seeza = See us a = Give me a
    punna = pound of
    burra = butter
    furra = for the/my
    murra = mother.
