    Depends on who you ask. It's usually regarded as a subregion of the South, but not part of the Deep South.

    i know this is a few pages back. but i literally had words with chicks who make fun of other people in class.

    It wasn't zumba, and i wasn't teaching, but i was, of course, the teacher who was there for the teacher-in-training, who was freaking out and didn't know how to handle the situation. skinny bitch goes "god, she looks like a COW" to her mean little friend while they giggled away, and so i said (while in downward dog no less) "moo, bitches, cows are sacred in india. if you have a problem, how about you shut the fuck up or get the fuck out? all cows are welcome here! MOOOOOO!"

    and then my students and fellow teachers-in-training in the class all started going "MOOO MOOO!" and then the gal they were picking on said "MOOOOO!" too, and then those bitches high-tailed the the heck outta MY classroom. As soon as the door slammed, everyone cracked up, and we got back to business. Instead of Om, that day, the teacher-in-training said "let us finish with the most sacred sound: MOO!"

    it was great.

    that student went on to loose 200 lbs, currently teaches yoga herself, and btw, kicks major ass. She also got a tattoo of a cow (dressed up india-style) on her body in celebration. when she got it, she said to me "i have to show you! look!" and there it was, a glorious cow tattoo. She said "it was the first yoga class ever, and when that happened, i could have cried. i wanted to do yoga SO bad, but was SO scared, and my worst nightmare came true! I was always fat, always bad at anything physical. And here people looked great and were making fun of me! but then you just told them to shut the fuck up and started mooing! that day, the cow became my symbol, and moo was my mantra. even though i was fat and awkward, i was still sacred, and it didn't matter. i was still welcome into the very heart of yoga! it changed everything!"

    Sometimes, standing up can change lives.

    aside from that, i have to gripe about people being alarmist of facebook. drives me nuts.

    @zoebired----GREAT story to read this morning. Don't know why I'm such a sap about stories like that but it brought tears to my eyes! (being serious here) I think it's the underdog thing.
    I learned a valuable lesson with the first steer I sent to slaughter. I should have named him Hamburger and not Snookers.
