While I am still baffled by the grammar, I find it funny that I (uncounsciously and probably wrongly) ended my own sentence with a preposition such as Stitchawl's Nebraskan Retirement Option:

In my research, I found this to also be common to Texans:

A Texan professor and an Oxford professor are chilling at a conference bar. The Texan professor, bored, looks to the Oxford professor and strikes up a conversation. “So there partner, where y’all from?” Oxford prof. replies, pushing his glasses to his nose: “Well, in reply to your query, I hail from Oxford. In addition, where I come from, we never end our sentences in a preposition.” The Texan prof. blinks once, shrugs his shoulders and drawls, “My apologies! What I mean to say is ‘where y’all from, asshole?’”

( I wasn't sure if you did it on purpose, or not! I thought you might have.....) Oh, and I've been seeing articles go by lately stating that those rules aren't really true, and that some prepositions work just FINE that way, thank you. So dinna fash yersel aboot it.

A farmer goes out and buys a new, young rooster. As soon as he brings him home, the young rooster rushes and services all 150 of the farmers hens. The farmer is impressed. At lunchtime, the young rooster again services all 150 hens. The farmer is not just impressed anymore, he is worried.

Next morning, not only is the rooster servicing the hens but he is servicing the turkeys, ducks even the cow. Later farmer looks out into the barnyard and finds the rooster stretched out, limp as a rag, his eyes closed, dead and vultures circling overhead. The farmer runs out, looks down at the young rooster's limp body and says: "You deserved it, you horny bastard!"

And the young rooster opens one eye, points up at the vultures with his wing, and says, "Shhhh!, they're about to land."
