Y’all come back real soon

Hey, y’all! Did you know that y’all is a contraction for you and all? It’s common in the southeast of the U.S. So, when ya’ll showed up on Yahoo! omg!, I was pretty sure that the writer was not a Southerner:

yall omg

The contraction ya’ll — if it even exists — is short for you will.

    I thought at first that “ya’ll” was a Klingon name (which is typically uncapitalized). But then I started wondering why a Klingon would be interested in a “Honey-Boo-Boo” party. And then everything just fell into place: it’s “Yahoo! omg!”.
