Southern Dictionary: Folks June 30, 2008

Posted by smooregasbord in General.

Folks is a term that many southerners use to refer to immediate family members but, more specifically, their parents. Here’s an example:

“How are your folks doing? Tell ’em we said, ‘Hi’!”

There is also a chain of restaurants in the south called Po’Folks which serves up all sorts of fried food just like your mama made for Sunday dinner.  They also used to serve fish shaped like a square.  I love square fish.
