Funny Southern Ladies

Maybe it was a childhood (and young adulthood) spent watching Gone With the Wind and Designing Women, but for some reason, I have always been a huge fan of funny Southern fiction. I still count Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man, by Fanny Flagg as one of my all time favorite books. My fandom particularly encompasses funny Southern women, who get to tell people off using great vocabulary words and run on sentences, and a tone that makes you forget for just a second that you are actually being told off. They also seem to point out the most ridiculous of truths, and also tell stories that are just plain funny.
Here are just a few of my very favorites:

Usually the titles, alone, are enough to get a snicker out of me.
