Translation Tuesday: Kiss My Grits

August 27, 2013

Ah, a new Translation Tuesday! Look, consistent blogging, go me! Today’s translation is a phrase I need to use more often. I really struggle using curse words… the f.bomb is pretty popular in my house. But I have nieces and nephews who are beginning to learn words. So I need to find better substitutes and this is a great one.

Kiss my grits is a nice Southern way of saying Kiss My Ass. Doesn’t Kiss My Grits sound prettier?

 

It also has a back in the day reference to a sitcom called Alice I think. It was set in a diner and I vaguely remember it from when I was a kid. One of the characters who was an eccentric waitress made the comment a lot. So, do any of you use the phrase kiss my grits?
