    Here is a fun test to take to see how Dixie or Yankee you are. I was surprised at some of the answers. We've discussed some of these things before. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    I came out at 71%. Less "Southern" than I would have thought. But then again, I don't like grits or black-eyed peas so maybe that's why. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I'm not American, but the questions still seemed to apply.

    I'm 65% Dixie - a definite southern score (maybe it's my north western England accent)

    72% (Dixie). That is a pretty strong Southern score!

    Well who knew. I call what most people refer to as frontage roads, feeders.
    It said that was local to Houston. I didn't know that [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] Live and learn.

    It says I am a good ole' southern boy that got a college education and spent too much time travelin' round the world.
    I like barbecue ribs, black eyed peas, watermelon, grits and southern ladies but I also like paella, ceviche, aroz con pollo and frijoles negro. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    43% Yankee, which it says puts me in the Yankee column barely. My roots are all northern (my people are from Michigan), but I like southern food better! LOL!

    I got "44% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category."

    well what is the rest then??
    it doesnt say!
    I should have zero dixie in me..

    how in the world can the second syllable in pajamas rhyme with "father"??
    I dont understand that at all!

    and "sneakers" isnt universal??
    those of you outside of the northeast dont wear "sneakers"?
    thats a new one for me!
    I assumed the whole world wore sneakers..

    55% Dixie - I tried as hard as I could to be honest about what words I use now. I didn't know the word grinder before I came here, but it's what I say now. I also use soda instead of coke as the generic. I think I say crawfish more often than crawdad, so went with it too. But I still say y'all because it's clearly the superior 2nd person plural. I never used it as a singular, which is proof of my lack of real southern heritage.
