What the heck is a "Moddy Oak"?

Recommended Posts

Unless I'm losing my hearing or had way too many beers.....watching a little OLN and saw a Mossy Oak commercial - the one where Mr Haas is planting acorns and raising and planting oak trees. Anyway, he states something like, "When people talk about 'Moddy Oaks' growing from acorns..." Is 'Moddy' or 'Motty' some southern drawl slang or what? Its not even remotely close to 'Mossy'. Listen next time and please confirm I'm not losing it. The worthless stuff I come up with, eh? crazy.gif

I never saw the show, but I'm just guessing that was his southern drawl for "Mommy oak givith acrins". grin.gif

Sounds reasonable to me.

Kind of like when a fellow I know said he needed some "awl". He was working on a car and the first thing I think was, why would he be needing an AWL?

Well, a couple seconds later it's like "Duh??" "Awl" was oil... with a strong drawl.
