The Heimlich Maneuver - Southern Style

(Or why you may need to chew your food a little extra longer in Southern restaurants)


Two Hillbillies walk into a restaurant off of an non-descript exit on I-26 in North Carolina. While having a bite to eat at lunch, they talk about their day's work and a neighbor trading an old horse for a dated tractor needing some work.
Suddenly, a woman tourist at a nearby table, who is eating a sandwich, begins to cough.  After a minute or so, it becomes apparent that she is in real distress.

One of the Hillbillies looks at her and walks over saying, "Kin ya swallar?"

The woman shakes her head, "No."

Then he asks, "Kin ya breathe, hooney?"

The woman begins to turn blue, and again shakes her head no in desperation.

The Hillbilly picks up the woman and lays her on the table, lifts up her dress, yanks down her drawers, and quickly gives her right butt cheek a lick with his tongue.

The woman is so shocked that she has a violent spasm and the obstruction flies out of her mouth.  As she begins to breathe again, the Hillbilly walks back to his table and sits down as if nothing happened..

His partner looks at him without blinking an eye and says, "Ya know I'd heerd of that there 'Hind Lick Maneuver' but I ain't niver seed nobody do it afore!"

Thanks to Len of Canada, eh?
