A native Alabamian and a big fan of grits, I was a teenager when the show was on television. I do not remember having heard it at all anywhere else.

At the time, I thought it was a fake and corny (pun unintended) attempt to capitalize on the '70s trend of "kiss my . . ." put-down phrases--I guess I still do.

Is KISS MY GRITS a true southernism, or is this just a faux folk expression
popularized by the old sit-com ALICE?
