Stuff Memphians Say

Okay, I know this meme is very tired, but this little segment does have the ring of truth to it, and there are some good references (weatherman Dave Brown, wrestling legend Jerry Lawler, and Jerry's Sno Cones) in it. And yes, Memphis is full of terrible driving, and Poplar Avenue should always be avoided whenever possible. One thing that struck me when watching this for the first time was that none of the characters actually sounds the way I remember Memphians talking. Such is the influence of mainstream media that the drawl of yore has been superceded by a more Midwestern sound in the younger generation. Oh, and I miss Libertyland, too.
