It's said there are three basic food groups for Southerners: sugar, lard and bourbon. Of course, this leaves out the most important food group, the one no self-respecting Southerner would turn down: grits.

They often liken grits to wet plaster or wallpaper paste.

"NewsRadio" may not be the NBC sitcom most of America is talking about this season, but it's getting honorable mentions as the funniest series set in a newsroom since "The Mary Tyler Moore Show."
