Default What kind of tree is this???

Maybe you guys can help. I've been watching some hunting shows and on one or two of them I've heard the guy say he was setting up near an "akern" tree. I think they were hunting somewhere in the southern states. Is is like a persimmon tree? I know those grow in the south too.

I'm not sure what it its, but it seems like the hot ticket if these top notch hunters are using them. I don't think we have those here, but maybe I could import one and plant it.

Handles,
In southern speak akern means acorn, the mast found on most
oak trees. I'm willing to bet you have them up there already.

Just another reason why the Drury Bros are better than Toxy-n-Cuz, they actually know that there is no such thing as an "Akern" tree, but rather that "accorns" come from Oak trees. I heard about a language theorist who said that "Ebonics" that modified/made-up English language used by many urban african americans, started in the south with the many modified/made up words already used in the region. I wonder if it will reverse its self and Ebonics will become widely used by everyone in the South. I'd love to hear Harold Knight or Will Primos talking about his "Mo-shizzle, manizzle".

THAT'S IT Handles, you have come up with something that just MIGHT make the Jackie Bushman Show bearable. Jackie needs a "shizznizzolator", that might just make the show exciting enough to stay awake!!!

As for comaring "ol Cuz an Toxey" too the Drury midgets, lest you forget that Toxey could buy the Drury's out and throw em in the garbage!!!

You tell me whose language is "more civil"???
