It's okay to be a Yankee FA-
We like you anyway!


(By the way, that long sandwich is really called a Po Boy- but it really ought to have fried shrimp and tobasco sauce on it instead of cold cuts!)

Po boy! haha. Sorry but being from California we call it a sub haha. I was looking at how different people use different words for soda. Like pop! Which is weird because I have never heard of any one using that term before. Maybe it's because I come from an area where you have to be specific with what kind of drink do you want. If you asked me for pop I would look at you like you're crazy.

I understand about "pop". My best friend of 34 years is originally from Ohio, and even after all these years of living in the deep south she, as well as everyone in her entire family, still call it "pop" when everyone else around here calls it "coke" or "soda". It just sounds funny!

72% Dixie.

I'm surprised a few of my answers were "Great Lakes" region. Huh? Never been there....at least not for anything longer than a week and even then, maybe twice.

Back in the early 70s when the auto plants were rocking in Detroit hundreds of Southerners (pipefitters, welders, etc.) temporarily migrated to the Great Lakes region for a couple of really big jobs that were happening that lasted a few years. When the work was played out and they came home they brought some of the lingo with them- and some of it stuck. Blame Union jobs my friend!

48% Dixie (Barely in Yankeedom)

Funny, where I live people remark I must be from up north. When I visit up north, people remark I must be from down south.

Here is how my test turned out...(41% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom.)...which to me makes sense because my Mom is from the South and my Dad from the North. I was raised in the North; but I have the influence of my Mother and her Southern sayings and Southern accent.

26% Dixie. You are a dandy Yankee Doodle.


HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Wait till my wife sees this!!!

She will agree 100%


I was surprised a lot of it said east coast on the test, and I am pretty much an Alaska/Minnesota guy.

About as Yankee as one can get!

That was actually pretty accurate!
The only one that I had a hard time answering was the soda/coke one...cause I call it Soda-pop or just pop, so I had to go with soda.


I've gotten into arguments with Roses over my Yankiness...lol

Personally, being born in alaska, I should be exempt from Yankee status dammit....lol
