The Southern Ten Commandments 

Some people have trouble with all those 'shall's' and 'shall nots' in the Ten Commandments. Folks just aren't used to talking in those terms. So, in middle Tennessee they translated the 'King James' into ' Jackson County ' language... no joke (posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Gainesboro , TN ). 
This is funny!!! And much easier to remember!!!

(1) Just one God 

(2) Put nothin' before God 

(3) Watch yer mouth 

(4) Git yourself to Sunday meetin' 

(5) Honor yer Ma & Pa 

(6) No killin'
(7) No foolin' around with another fellow's gal 

(8) Don't take what ain't yers 

(9) No tellin' tales or gossipin' 

(10) Don't be hankerin' for yer buddy's stuff

Now that's plain an' simple. Y'all have a nice day
