(noun) A Briar is a reference used in southwest Ohio and southeast Indiana to refer to a white person of Kentucky (usually Eastern Kentucky)and sometimes even East Tennessee, Virginia or West Virginia heritage. The term has a certain amount of irony because much of the areas where the term is used are chock-full of Briars. It's the N-word of white folks in parts of the Upper South. If you are a Briar, you may call another Briar a Briar, but if you are not a Briar and call another a Briar, them are fighin' words! "Briar" is especially well known in Dayton Ohio.
Darryll is a real Briar. He lives in Drexel and his ex-wives live in Riverside and Northridge. He has an old El Camino up on blocks outside his house and an ancient upholstered sofa on his front porch. He has three dogs and a chain-link fence around the perimeter of his property and they bark on a regular basis. He has a long extension cord on a portable TV so he can sit on the porch, drink Milwaukee's Best and watch NASCAR. His Momma Darlene lives in East Dayton with her third husband, Larry. Darryll, who is on disability from GM, is living with Kathy Lou, who is divorced from Harold. His ex-wives are Glenda and Brenda. They are twins and Kathy Lou is their cousin. Larry is related to Darryll on Darryll's daddy's side.

A genre of chili local to Cincinnati, Ohio and its suburbs in Newport and Covington, Kentucky. Developed by Greek immigrants in the early 1920s, it is a variation of a Greek meat stew. It generally includes some ingredients unusual to chili such as cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cocoa and a touch of vinegar. The first Cincinnati Chili was Empress, which is still a small but vital chain but the most popular/widespread chains are Skyline and Gold Star. Dixie Chili is based in Newport, Kentucky. The chili is served two-way, three-way, four-way and five-way with the addition of spaghettti, cheese, onions and beans and oyster crackers and hot sauce are expected gratuitious condiments on the table or by request. Frozen, canned and kits in spice packs are sold at Kroger and other Upper South grocery emporiums.

This genre of chili is rightfully more of a spaghetti topping or sauce than it is a traditional chili and has an addictive quality. It's also a popular late-nite after-bar food in the area along with White Castle hamburgers.
I live in Dayton (Ohio) where we can only get Skyline and Gold Star Cincinnati Chili in the restaurants so we took a road trip to Newport, Kentucky to sample some Dixie Chili and back through Cincy for some Empress Chili. Then I found out that you can get canned Dixie chili and frozen Empress at Kroger back home.

Assholes Anonymous or AA – A 12-step program for assholes in an attempt to recover from its horrible sphincter grip into recovery. An asshole can never be cured but they can be β€œin recovery.”

Some never come to grips with their situation until they have suffered an assectomy

The 12 Steps of Assholes Anonymous
1. We admitted we were powerless over our assholiness - that our lives had become unmanageable
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to non-asshole living.
3. Made a decision to turn our asshole desires and asshole habits over to the care of God as we understood God
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of our own personal asshole.
5. Admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our being an asshole.
6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of being an asshole.
7. Humbly asked God to remove our assholes.
8. Made a list of all persons the asshole in us had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or other assholes
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were being an asshole, promptly admitted it
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood God, praying only for knowledge of God's will to free us from our assholes and the power to carry that out
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other assholes, and to practice these principles in all our affairs
From an AA (Assholes Anonymous) meeting:

Mike: "My name is Mike and I am an asshole. I was born an asshole and have been an asshole, sometimes in denial all of my life."

Group: "Hi, Mike!"

A fruity, ginger-flavored soft drink/pop popular in the Upper South that has a high amount of caffeine and a distinctive flavor. It is considered a ginger ale. Manufactured in Winchester, Kentucky, Ale-8-1 got its name as the result of a contest in the 1920s and refers to "a late one," as in those days many people drank a soft drink at night before bed to settle their stomachs. Also featured in the Cameron Crow 2005 film, Elizabethtown. Available through the company store but only sold in the Upper South in stores.
"I couldn't get any Diet Ale-8-1 in Dayton, so I had to drive an hour to Kentucky to buy some. They only have the full-sugar version in Dayton (Ohio)."

Noun. Adj. version "limerent."
The sheer shining moment and a brief period of time when a person falls blindly and intensely in love. Limerence is a temporary condition that fortunately goes away, allowing the love-er to come up for air and see a person or situation for what it is rather than what they want it to be. Limerence is being high on love. This condition makes people believe that they have found their soulmate.Usually followed by a crashing blow - the manic becomes depressive.
"I was in limerence for the entire semester of my senior year, when I had three classes with him. I was so excited I could hardly breathe. He was good, he was kind and everything he said was wise nad witty."

(verb) A very genteel southern term for urination. Used for both sexes in childhood, used by women throughout their lives. Tee tee comes from the tee-hiny. A person who would use this term would never let the coarsely vulgar "pee" ever cross their lips.
"I have to tee tee so bad - I hope that fat lady in the left stall and the woman with three little children in the right one will hurry up," said Velva Mae to her sister Venery Ann.
