I would have ruled this world too, if it weren't for you meddling kids!

Only in North Carolina can you find strange things like

A big Ford truck sporting a "Tool" bumper sticker beside an "NRA" bumper sticker.

People smoking pot before going to the symphony.

People who think its a wonderful thing if you've been "shagging".....why, there's even a whole beach festival centered around shagging!

A weight-loss clinic sharing building space with a Baskin & Robbins.

Women who must get their hair "teased" and "set" every Wednesday before their Women's Rights meeting.

A pew full of dyed-and-pierced teenage punk rockers at the Baptist church on Sunday nights.

Women who refuse to walk to the mailbox unless they have a full face of make-up on.

Highly-paid executive CEO's who are totally stoked for "Mule Day" and "Merlefest".

A popular restaurant, right in the middle of a ghetto, called "Whitey's". Geez.

People who grow marijuana plants between their tomato plants.

Women who were asked to leave the Baptist church because they started dating again after getting a divorce.

People asked to leave the Pentecostal church because they were unable to tithe.

Rabid Clay Aiken fans that condemn homosexuality to the death.

And this isn't one of those cute "you know you're from North Carolina when..." lists. This is just people and things that I know of personally. How do I survive? That's easy, I just do a lot of smiling and nodding!
