(Westfield, NC) A Stokes County family's Christmas dinner erupted into a food fight that started over a disagreement about Duck Dynasty, the A&E channel's reality television show about the Robertson family.
The Watson family was at their home-place enjoying a large gathering of grand children, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. "Mamma does it right every year, the food is delicious" said family member Billy Watson; "It's the only time of the year when the entire family is able to gather for an afternoon".
The Duck Dynasty controversy came up in conversation at the table while the family was enjoying a meal of ham, turkey, roast, pork roast, country steak, sausage balls, BBQ, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, macaroni and cheese, fried jowls, fried corn, fried chicken livers, green beans, lima beans, beets, collards, cabbage, chow-chow, cranberries, biscuits, cornbread, Pepsi and iced tea.
"One of the nephews, Bobby Fulp, married a woman from Massachusetts and they live in Boston; She thinks mighty of herself and has one of those hyphenated last names", according to Betty-Sue Watson who is Billy's wife. She continued, "The duck show came up and we all thought Mr. Robertson didn't say anything hateful and thought it funny how worked up people were getting over truthful comments. Bobby's wife took offense and called us homophones. I said I guess the truth hurts, don't it? and she wouldn't look at me. I said it again and she still wouldn't look at me. That's when I flicked a piece of biscuit at her to get her attention and all hell broke loose".
"Food was flyin' everywhere. It was almost funny until Mamma got hit in the face with mashed potatoes and gravy. Everyone stopped and Mamma just sat there for a moment with gravy dripping off her glasses. She took off the glasses and her face squished up and we all knew it was coming, she busted out crying and all of us felt horrible for ruining the meal she worked so hard to prepare".
"For a large family, we all get along just fine, except for Bobby's wife. She thinks she's better than everyone else and has Bobby wrapped around so tight we all say he's cross-eyed".
The food fight almost sparked blows between Billy Watson and his cousin Bobby Fulp as Betty-Sue Watson relates, "Billy called Bobby's wife a Yankee bitch and Bobby got riled".
The two were separated by family members and things settled down enough for the family to enjoy deserts of banana pudding, apple pie, pecan pie, peach cobbler, blackberry cobbler, Jello, chocolate meringue pie, lemon meringue pie, brownies, coconut macaroons, cheesecake, red velvet cake, fruitcake, cookies, ice-cream, cinnamon rolls, Pepsi, coffee and iced tea.
Sounds like Westfield doesn’t it?
LOL. This story makes me hungry.
Here in Red England, it's hard to find one who isn't...
well you trotted out what you thought were the stereo types of a southern Christmas meal frankly I am offended beyond belief. Your food list is non authentic and ridiculous. Moreover you served Pepsi and iced tea things that would never happen south of the Mason Dixon. What the heck is stuffing if you don’t have enough sense to serve dressing you just don’t have enough sense. Plus you have suggested that these folks would willingly waste good food and that ain’t never gonna happen.
Merry Christmas anyway
Three point five billion v*****s in the world, and he had to pick that one....
God bless 'em every one.
It just have looked something like this....
Yeehaw yummy. Sweet tea is common, maybe that’s what is intended. And many folks would call a Pepsi a Coke.
You obviously haven’t eaten a holiday meal in rural NC where it’s a several hour ordeal that you have to repeat 4 hours later at supper.
Oh, and I left off the Fried Okra, squash and oysters.
>> chow-chow <<
I’ll stand up proudly for a family that has no qualms about serving dog at a Christmas meal.
Fun read, thanks for posting, and Merry Christmas.
Hand each one at the dinner a gun and a case of ammo so that they may put each other out of their pathetic lives’ miseries.
Exactly. Anyone from the rural south calls it tea. Outsiders call it sweet tea.
Says Betty-Sue Watson with a hyphenated first name.
That there some good writing!
Oh, the pain! (or is it pane?)
I don’t know those people, no, not at all.
Truthfully, southern ladies are pretty expert at taking control of a situation when a woman among them gets “hysterical”. They would never allow such embarrassing conduct to appear before the menfolk.
And, truth be told, no one is going to use the expression “Yankee” at the table, as that is the “n” word in large swaths of the South.
