Never heard of the term, so I looked it up. Seems it's a regionalism, used by people from the American deep south.


I thought OP was just making things up.


I would never.

it's more of a Florida euphemism than a regionalism, intended to protect tourism, or some such nonsense.

You're lucky. I once squashed one in half under my shoe, and the part with the head managed to walk away. I went to the kitchen to get a towel and pick of the bottom half of the roach. When I got back (10/15 seconds) the top half was eating the guts of his own bottom half. That was pretty much the worst thing I've ever seen.

Wow, that definitely wins the badass sweepstakes! That's an image that would be hard to forget....
