Southern Fried Vocab No. 15

Howdy. Howdy. Howwwwwwwww-dee! I hope you all had a better week this week than you did last week and if not, here’s to hoping next week is the BEST! You have just landed smack dab in the middle of the 15th installment of Southern Fried Vocab. If you missed last week’s phrase, don’t you worry your pretty lil’ head none. If the Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, you can click right here and it’ll take you right to it.
If you’re unfamiliar with the rules, they go a lil’ something like this. You will be given a vocabulary word or phrase, a definition and a sentence. You are hereby challenged to go forth and use it in conversation.
Though you may not see a logical place to insert these words into conversation, everything is always better when you cover it in flour and drop it in some hot grease.
This week’s phrase is a hit dog will holler.

If that bad boy is still alive, I guarantee he's a hollerin'!

Definition
A hit dog will holler: when a group of folks find themselves in a troublesome situation, more often than not, the troublemaker speaks up first to clear his name

Example
Lil’ Frankie and Lil’ Johnnie are playing ball in the house after their mother told them to stop. Johnnie throws the ball, knocks over the good vase and it shatters.
Mom to boys from another room: Whodunnit?!
Johnnie: It wasn’t me!
Frankie: A hit dog will holler!
*snaps leather belt* Mom: Every time.

Quick Review
If there is a situation where there is trouble and there is more than one person to blame, the person “whodunnit” will be the first to speak up (i.e. lie) to say that it wasn’t them. This phrase also works if you are speaking truth in a situation that offends one or more people and they speak up in offense. You’ve hit a nerve (it hurts) and they holler, much like when a dog is hit by a vehicle. All of his nerves have been hit, so he hollers. That’s how you get, a hit dog will holler. The proper response is “every time.”

  1. So wait, if everyone knows that the person whodunnit would be the first to say this, isn’t that person essentially just ratting themselves out by saying it?

    Completely confuzzled, once again, which I think means, mission accomplished for you.

  2. This is the equivalent to: She who smelt it, dealt it.

    Thank you and goodnight!

    @Bangs, LoL! Everybody in the room already knows whodunnit. The object is to wait and see if the culprit is dumb enough to try and convince people otherwise.

    @TheJadedNyer, it is exactly the same. The moral of the story here kids is it’s best to keep quiet.
