"You might could sleep in one!"

Instead of using simply "might" or "could", characters of the Homestar Runner universe, namely Homestar Runner himself, tend to sometimes say might could instead. Such usages of "non-standard" double modals are common in the vernacular of the Southern United States, including Georgia, where the Brothers Chaps live.
