    Are you a Yankee or Rebel???

    Yes I know probably not politically correct but an interesting assortment of questions any way. It explores Crayfish vs Crawdad plus many more differences and similarities.

    My score!
    46% (Yankee). Barely in the Yankee category.

    It is all a matter of perspective!!!

    30% (Yankee). You are a Yankee Doodle Dandy.

    We don't have roads beside highways (Frontage Roads), drive-through liquor stores, or crawfish and we don't have a common expression for toilet-papering houses.

    63% (Dixie). Just under the Mason-Dixon Line

    Didn't think I was a Yankee.

    much lower then I expected maybe being so close to Kentucky must have some affect.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I refuse to post my score. There must be a mistake. I can't be a Yankee, I'm from California.

    I didn't know how to answer the bug question. I think I've heard all those terms but have never really been in the situation of describing bugs where I would have to pick one...

    What's that road along an Interstate highway?

    Uhh, you mean an "on-ramp?"

    Come on, Californians are Yankees, and always have been.

    No! It's a frontage road. They mean an actual road that runs along the Interstate but doesn't necessarily have to have on-ramps.

    I don't think we have "frontage roads" in Buffalo. If a road paralels the Interstate it was probably there long before the Interstate was.

    No, never. I refuse to accept your conclusionary statement. I need facts and pertinent supporting evidence. Native Sons and Daughters of the Golden State would never align themselves with those damn Yankees. (sorry, damn Yankees).

    Interesting in that the south frontage road along Northland Av (a major street that crosses the city's north side and was originally US 41) here in Appleton is called 'Service Rd' (official street name).

    Wrongo. I'm from Northern California. A Giants fan here. I hate the Angles (intentional sic) and the Dodgers (sorry sisterceleste). Anybody ever mention that on any given day, it's somewhere between the 5th and 7th largest economy in the world if it were an independent nation?

    Extended family is from Massachusetts, but I've been in the south for 15-20 years
    Every time I look at a Yankees hat I see a swastika tilted just a little off kilter.

    My family would be proud, despite my Yankee location, 76% (Dixie). Your neck must be at least pink!

    Whatever, at least in the part of the Appalachian South I'm from no one uses the word "Poke" outside of the colloquialism, "Pig in a poke." And a "Doodlebug" is a loving nickname, if you will, for a cute child, not a "roly-polly," which is synonymous with "Pillbug."

    67% (Dixie). Pretty good, considering I've been this one-hour north of the Mason Dixon line for 30+ years.

    I wonder how Luca or one of our other British colleagues would score. Would they be 100% yankee?
