Did anyone watch American Idol last night? They were in Kentucky. This one young man named Mark Mudd got up to the mike and sang George Jone's White Lightening. He of course was turned down by the judges. As he was walking out he told the judges to be careful. Ms. Drama Paula and Simon took that as a threat!
This young man was in no way threatening any of them - Here in WV the phrase " be careful" is used in the same context as "take care". Really! I tell my hubby and kids and most people I know to be careful all the time. When they leave for work, school, ball games, the movies etc. It is basically just Southern hospitality.
I felt sorry for that poor guy last night on American Idol. When Paula asked him if that was a threat he had a look on his face like "Huh?"
Maybe the big city producers should learn a little bit about Southern hospitality - they could take a few lessons from small town life and mannerism.
You can watch Mark's audition here.
