Two unidentified words from Bill Moyers' Colbert interview
January 12, 2012 3:50 PM   Subscribe

What is Bill Moyers talking about at 16:30 in this recent Colbert Report episode?

He says, "you're from the South, you must know the difference between the _____ and the _____."

He uses two words I've never heard, and nobody I asked knew them either. Every way I've tried to spell them turns up nothing on Google.

Ah of course! That makes sense, I was just hearing it as two single words. Thanks!
