    That smells like kyarn...

    I did a thread on this one time. One of those I assume southern sayings, and my mother has always used it to describe when something smells really bad.

    I looked it up finally and this is what the urban dictionary said:

    (n) A southern derivative of the word carrion, meaning dead and/or decaying flesh.
    That bag of rotten potatoes smells like kyarn.

    Yuck! This tastes like kyarn!

    You are as lazy as kyarn.

    Anybody else ever heard that first hand before I brought it up?

    So, have you ever used the word kyarn like your mom did?

    I've seen the word in books, but never knew anyone who used it.

    I'm pretty sure my mother is the only one I've ever heard say it.

    I've never heard it before. Where is your Mom from?

    Born and raised in the Atlanta area. I'm sure she got it from her mom or grandmother who are from here too.
