Was the calling people "honey" thing with Joe-Jack ever explained?

    I'm pretty sure I didn't note it being mentioned in any episodes and the way nobody reacts to it (Hank especially) makes me wonder how it was explained. I guess it may be a regional thing but still it would make more sense coming from a granny than from a deep-voiced truck driver.

    It's a Southern dialect thing. In some parts of the deep south, "Honey" is another way of saying "pal" or "brother."

    That's the joke. I live in the deep south, and a lot of people do call everyone "honey" or "sweetie" or some such. But it's usually women. The joke is that it is a deep-voiced male truck driver doing it.
