    63% Dixie "a definitive Southern score!" Must've been all that time I spent there when I was young.......

    55% Not bad for never have been in the south (Unless you count Tenn.) Where exactly does the South start anyway? Does Texas make up part of the South? They sure talk with a twang (no offense to you Texans). Is Fla the South? I mean, they are IN the South but most of the residents are from somewhere else. At least that's what I think when I think Fla (I haven't been there either). I should plan a bike ride to the South this summer just so I can SEE it. Maybe someone would put me up for a night?
    ok I'm rambling...

    Mine was 58% and said "barely into Dixie" . . . . I don't get it.

    And its a Roly Poly bug. :chuckle

    All my grandparents are from Arkansas or Oklahoma. When I hang around them I start talking like them. Before that my relatives are from the northeast.

    Oh, but I have to make a test corrction. No Hero's in Maine. It's called an Italian sandwich in most parts of the state. (Just looking for a way to redeem myself of the poor Yankee score. )

    Huh-uh, it's a POTATO BUG where I come from!!

    It's funny, I've always referred to carbonated drinks as "sodas" or "Cokes" (regardless of brand), but never thought much about where these particular terms originated. Of course, I knew Coca-Cola (actually pronounced "Co-Cola") was invented in the South......heck, it even used to have COCAINE in it. Most of my family was also from the South, particularly Texas and Kentucky, so I picked up some of the vernacular from that part of the country while growing up. I remember being very confused when a girl who moved from New England to our town in the fifth grade asked me for an "elastic"........she meant rubber band!

    And while I'm 'fessing up.......I call a creek a "crick", a sale on someone's lawn a "yard sale", and even refer to "y'all" on occasion. Then you add the Latino influence I grew up with to the mix and you get some interesting blends of phrases that I guess you'd call Tex-Mex ("Hey, you wanna check out that yard sale, mi hija?"

    75% Dixie Strong Southern score I have only lived in Oklahoma and Texas so I guess that must be expected.

    Rusty yes Texas is The South in fact one of the jokes in Texas is anyone from north of the Red River is a Yankee.

    Also there are two kinds of Yankees
    A yankee is someone from up north that comes south for a visit
    and a damn yankee is someone from up north that comes for a visit and stays! LOL no offense just passing on a little of the ole southern humor

    My score was 48% - "barely Yankee."

    Must be the time I spent living in Charleston, SC as a teenager. I never knew I was a Yankee until I moved there. I had forgotten about the "Coke" thing - in SC you could order a Coke, a cherry Coke, and orange Coke, etc.

    Oh, and hey yuns guys - in much of western PA a rubber band is a "gum band". Just in case you ever need to know that .. :wink2:
