Good ol' Mobtown, the Port City, the City of Six Flags, the 251, whatever you may call it, if you call this incredible place your hometown you know many things that out-of-towners just don't understand. Nothing can be more annoying than someone asking you "Mardi Gras started in New Orleans, right?" or "Aren't you from Mo-bill?" Ugh so wrong.
1. It's pronounced 'Mo-beel'
Yeahh nope. Never call it 'Mo-bull', 'Mo-bill', or even 'Mo-byl' to a Mobile native unless you really want to irritate them.
2. You can't fake the Foo.
You've never truly tasted Heaven until you've had some of Foosackly's chicken fingers! No other fried chicken can compare!
3. Football isn't just a sport.
It's a lifestyle. Friday nights in the Fall are dictated by high school games with the biggest rivalries. Then it's Saturday and it's all about college. Just hope you're not stuck with a Bama fan while watching an Auburn game.
4. Dew Drop hot dogs>>>>
Yes, they're red. No, it's not weird. They're delicious.
5. The Crichton Leprechaun
"Who all seen the leprechaun say yeahhh"
6. Mardi Gras started in Mobile.
No, it did NOT start in New Orleans. It was actually originally celebrated 15 years in Mobtown before it made it to New Orleans.
