Redundant objects

Here in the South, we often hear redundant objects used in everyday speech. For example, we will hear something like "I need to buy me some new shoes," or "I need to go out to the college and take me some courses." In both cases, the 'me' is totally unnecessary. The sentence makes sense without it.
This usage is rather comical. Would you take courses for some else or buy shoes for another person? It is just a little quirk of southern speech.
