Terms Every Hillbilly Needs to Know

Bonus - When we git together with Bo to do something…as in "Bonus are fixin' to go dancin' at the Horseshoe in a little while! Wanna go?"

Pooling - Something we git together and do in are millionaire friends' backyards--the ones that put in a pool with all that new money instead of buying a new boat…as in "Hey! Bonus are fixin' to go pooling over at Kassi's house in a little while! Wanna go?"

Pugh Clause - Something Bonus wrote into are leases that says that the drilling in are backyards is not allowed to out-stink the smell of Boudreaux's dog pen.

Workover - What Bonus do to them landmen and flippers that come around here with ridiculous stories about how are shale here ain't as thick as there shale thar so that that is why are upfront money here was less than there's over thar. As in, "Hey! Bonus are fixin' to workover that landman over thar, but we gotta hurry cause we're fixin' to pooling in little while!" Course now, when we git through with the workover, them boys' underware have done violated the Pugh Clause and we git 'em throwed off our land!

Haynesville Shale--is that purty lil shell I found when I wuz at the beach in Haynesville. I think I will git a piece of strang and tie it around that shell and make Granny a necklace!
Okay. Here's another need to know term.

Horizontal Drillin' - Well, shucks! It warn't be right to talk out loud about what that is. Bonus told them girls not to tell folks that we drove 'em out to Elm Grove after the dance th'other nite so's that we could witness us a little horizontal drillin'.
After all the serious stuff on this site, you all have this Illinois "flatlander" LOL!!! As I'm watching the play from afar, I just have to believe some of the landmen and O&G people probably look at you all that way. They have no idea what they're in for!! Keep makin' me laugh. Thanks, Cannie
