Are you a redneck or a yankee? (Made for US residents, but you can play :p)

Clicky (http://www.alphadictionary.com/articles/yankeetest.html)

My result: "40% Dixie. You are definitely a Yankee."

It surprises me that I'm not more Redneck. I am, after all, from Oklahoma.

I can imagine that being said with a strong Texan accent.

I know a worse one.



64% Dixie. Just under the Mason-Dixon Line

Haha, does anyone else call the freeway access road the "feeder"? I had no idea that was a Houston term.

Yeah, I do. But I'm from Houston. It's weird, cause when you go to Dallas they call it frontage roads. I used to drive up I-45 seeing a bunch of exit signs that read "Frontage Road" and thought "wow, people sure like to name roads that."

But I was an idiot. Was.

I love how the term "coke" is used to describe soft drinks in texas. Someone that calls it "pop" is clearly a yankee....hands down. Anyone else familiar with this scenario?

"Do you want a coke?"
"What do you have?"
"Sprite, Coke, and Dr. Pepper"
"Yeah get me a sprite"

Haha, that's so bizarre that you'd say that. Not too long ago, I was driving down I-10 with my mother in the car and I saw a sign that said "Frontage Road". A few miles later, I saw another one and I asked her, out loud, "How many roads are named Frontage Road out here?!"

"Umm, that's the feeder, dear."

Hahahaha. I swear to God it was capitalized, too, so I read it as a proper name. How fucking confusing!

And, yeah, soda in Texas = coke, no matter what the brand. Unless, of course, you're ordering something at a restaurant and you want something other than coke -- then you specify. My boyfriend is from Pittsburgh and he still calls soda/coke "pop" and water fountains "bubblers". And he says "yinz" instead of "y'all". I hate it!

As far as I know, Texans are the only people who use the phrases "big old" when describing something large in stature (e.g. "Man, that's a big ol' bear!") and "fixing to", as in "I'm fixing to go to the mall. Do you want to come along?"

34% Dixie...

You put groceries in a bag. Where the hell is it not a bag? And Soda and Pop are interchangable with me, though I do feel queer saying pop, it's the less natural of the two for me.

I'm from Kansas too, how about that. All I can say is THANK GOD.

41% barely in Yankeedom. How did that happen??? Must be cuz the Westcoast is SO progressive LOL.

Ummm in Oregon they call carbonated beverages "pop." Whenever I hear it I have to argue with the person, "It's not POP...it's SODA...say it with me so-duh...SO-duh...SO-DUH!" It's one of the first things that aggrevated me after moving up from SoCali.

Sorry, it's coke. COH-K. Just go ahead and get with the program.

And people actually call water fountains bubblers? Holy crap! That's just strange.

No, you put a sack over someone's head when you're going to execute them. Or if you're the baddies in V for Vendetta. You teabag with a sack. You do not put groceries in them.

:icon_conf Different strokes for different folks.

Me too, 33% and I was raised everywhere. Got a whole lot of answers related to the Great Lakes Area. Considering I was born in Saginaw, Michigan, and actually spent a summer there when I was about 10.

But I do know the difference between a stoop and a porch... Hell, I spent more time living in Biloxi, Mississippi than I have in Michigan.
