We love our dollar stores. The general kind, the family kind, the tree kind and the rest of them.

Just because we in the south, and especially in Alabama, make pretty convenient targets doesn't mean we give a rip.

Mr. big TikTok comedian, we can take it, so BRING IT!

If you haven't noticed these days, prices are high and we need some dollar retailers.


However, a comedian has gone extremely viral (that means it's more than just standard viral) with a video pointing out the state of Alabama's allegiance to dollar stores.

John Crist is a comedian with nearly 2 million followers and a recent video directed at us Alabamians.

Take a peek below.

I say we just embrace it and love our DOLLAR stores as much and as often as we like!

It is highly possible that we southern folks just have an appreciation for things that other states do not understand or share. That's just fine.

We don't give them trouble about the ridiculous things they seem to love.


This video captures how we Alabama folks (and southerners) feel about going to our Dollar stores.

I love the one about "Dollar General being a storage shed acting like a store".

That's funny. I don't care who you are.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
