Have you ever thought about the things that make us 'Southern' here in Shreveport-Bossier City, LA? If you don't like any of those things, does that mean you lose your 'Southerner card?'

What could make someone from Louisiana lose their 'Southern' card?

That's easy! There are some things here in Louisiana that we hold sacred above all else. Those items are our food and LSU/SEC Football. If you don't truly believe in your heart that our cuisine is the best in the world and that nothing can beat a Saturday night in Death Valley, you might as well hand in your 'Southern Card' now. Heck, we might even kick you out!

When I decided to ask this question on social media, the Ark-La-Tex didn't hold back. The creativity you threw down was darn right impressive and hilarious. Keep in mind, these folks don't actually feel this way, they're being funny. Right? We all know that dogging the SEC or drinking unsweet tea around these parts will get you in trouble quickly!
