What we have here, is a failure to communicate

Now see, I don't think this guy would have had any problems if he was in South Louisiana... (KIDDING!)


Bartle Doo? What say you?

I thought it was "bottle of Dew." He talks like ... Sherri types? Nah, at least we can figure out your words, sherri!

I have an uncle that talks exactly like Boomhowr (I have no idea how to spell that name) from King of the Hill. The sad part is I can understand him and Boomhauer (looked it up because I can be OCD like that, but my ADD usually cancels it out) but not this fella.

This is why I don't go to Texas, I don't speak the language, although much longer and I'll be able to understand the Mexican better than the "English" down there.

Nick - Are you kidding me? My uncles talk way more like Boomhauer than anyone down here. (My uncles from Virginia.)

I gotta drive to Austin with 2 kids and a weiner dog. I'll check in later! Bartle Doo!

I like how he uses Bartle Doo as every part of speech.

And how the last guy's all, "Yeah..."

When I was in CA, a guy moved there from Mississippi, & I could not understand him AT ALL.

Then I moved to GA, and for awhile I had a tough time understanding some local commercials.

Now I find myself actually preferring a Southern accent. Even tho I don't seem to have acquired one.

(But when I went to England, I had to force myself not to adopt an English accent. And I was only there for 10 days.

That was very entertaining though I would hate to be one of the workers in that position.

About his "bartle doo" thing: I thought it was like the movie Babe. "Bartle doo, pig, bartle doo."

Ok, katdish. That was pretty funny. South Louisiana, what? I personally find some Texans harder to understand than Cajuns, but maybe I just have a trained ear. :)

I'm not helping my cause here, but please tell me you've heard of Poo Poo Broussard. Look him up on youtube. You will laugh! This is one of my favorites:

kat,

How often am I serious? Actually my uncle really does talk like him. I don't know why because he is the only one in the fam that does. Weird. He is a Georgian BTW.

Kris,

If your father ever says, "Bartle Doo" in my presence, please apologize for me as I lay rolling on the floor in uncontrollable fits of laughter. I am snickering right now as I imagine him saying to Ron, "Bartle Doo, little brotha, bartle doo."

Kris said...

no, no, no. he uses 'what we have here is a failure to communicate'...in a cajun accent

katdish said...

Dang! Bartle Doo is so much funnier! Hey, maybe you could just tell him that those cargo pants Jeff wears that he likes so much are called "bartle doos".
