Classic speech by Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter) on Designing Women.

(After reading a New York Times article that says that Southerners eat dirt for the vitamins, Julia calls the editor)

Julia:
"Yes, you can give him a message. You do take shorthand, don't you? Good, we take it in the South too.

Anyway, just tell him that I have been a Southerner all my life, and I can vouch for the fact the we do eat a lot of things down here and we've certainly all had our share of grits and biscuits & gravy, and I myself have probably eaten enough fried chicken to feed a third world country; not to mention barbecue, cornbread, watermelon, fried pies, okra, and (pause) yes; if I were being perfectly candid, I would have to admit we have also eaten our share of crow, and for all I know during the darkest, leanest years of the Civil War, some of us may have had a Yankee or two for breakfast.

But (pause) speaking for myself and hundreds of thousands of my Southern ancestors who have evolved through many decades of poverty, strife, and turmoil; I would like for Mr. Weaks to know that we have surely eaten many things in the past and we will surely eat many things in the future, but God as my witness we have never, I repeat, NEVER EATEN DIRT!!!"
