Fixin's

I saw this local article online a few days ago.

Meth Fixins? That makes it sound like they're making something nice. "Fixins" is what you say when you're making something fun and delightful: "Hey kids, I've got all the fixins to make homemade ice cream!" "Fixins" are are part of Colonel Sanders' special recipe.

If nothing else, this is cold hard proof that the local paper got rid of all their editors some time ago. No newspaper editor in his right mind would let a headline like that go to press. There's no such word in the dictionary. Well, not in Webster's, that is. Maybe in the Official Redneck and Hillbilly Dictionary of Southern Indiana and Outlying Regions 2011.
