Dear Yankee authors,
Y'all means you all. It is used when referring to 2 or more people. No southerner has EVER used '"y'all" to refer to one person. I die a little inside whenever someone butchers Applebloom/Jack's speech. Yes, the country-ism's are a little over the top in the show, but they're just for comedic effect. "Y'all" is sacred. Just 'cuz you guys won the War of Northern Aggression doesn't mean you can appropriate our culture.
