I adore this. It is not something I hear people (gp) say often.
Lol, it's one of my absolute favorite things to say! As many posters here can attest.
I am used to hearing, "Are people here ignorant/inbred/stupid/dumb/hicks?" No, they use an earlier and less common form of english. Just because something else is deemed more proper does not mean that the old words/terms/phrases are forgotten, incorrect, and invalid.
