    Great article. Thanks for posting it.

    I could imagine hitting a dog, but a dog falling on me? That would not be foreseen even by the amazing kreskin...
    I never knew why a dog would stick its head out the car window until I took my first ride on a motorcycle.

    I liked this line:

    As the farmer said when his mule died, "It never did that before."

    " It ain't never done that afore."
    Having lived in Oklahoma for 8 years, I think you are still giving a bit too much credit to their linguistic abilities.

    It should read "ain't never dun that fore"


    BTW: very interesting article. Makes you wonder what's around the next corner

    I think the author did an excellent job pointing out the differences between an accident and a crash.

    Dog falling off an overpass: accident.

    Just about everything else he mentioned: crash.

    Sooooooo, only your dialect is correct? How about "yoose guys" ? I use the word ain't all the time, everyone in the south does. That doesn't make us any less intelligent. BTW, ain't is now in the dictionary.
