Rain Dog BS: Is the Mudcat American? (114* d) RE: BS: Is the Mudcat American? 24 Apr 20

Like I said, don't get me started on northerners.

I live on the south coast and one of the worse things anyone can call you is a northerner. It used to be that if you lived outside the town you might well be labelled a northerner. But then came the internet.

Certain people (extremists) then said you can only be a southerner if you lived within a certain distance from the shoreline. Over time and due to many heated exchanges on the net, that distance has gradually got shorter and shorter, so we end up with the situation that people who come from families who have lived in this town for generations are now labelled northerners. That is not easy to take.

Then there are the even more extreme extremists who gather at the shoreline at low tide, just so they can harangue the other inhabitants of the town, calling them northerners. Most of us think of them as a right bunch of canutes. Just be thankful that none of them have made it to the mudcat yet.
