I was 83% Dixie. :-D
lol. How much more Southern can you get? Last time I checked, about the only thing South of Oz was the South Pole. :-D ;-) :-0Rem said:66% (Dixie). A definitive Southern score!
Hmmmm? I smell a rat - oops, that might be my dinner cooking. (Which adds further weight to the southernor argument. ;-))
Here are my results of taking their quiz:DA Monkey said:
Cardinal said:"100% (Dixie). Is General Lee your father?"
Damn. I thought I was smarter than that. Do they think southern Canada is Dixie?
Plannerbabs said:38% (Yankee). A definitive Yankee...Interesting, since I'm a midwestern girl
Heck... here (and at least all latin america) Yankee (phonetically changed here to Yanqui) = Person from the US...mendelman said:I think people are mis-interpreting the term 'Yankee' to mean only those of the north half of the eastern seaboard and east of Central Pennsylvania, which is wrong.
Big Easy King said:70% Dixie. Damn I'm southern, y'all! :-D

biscuit said:well 50% isn't that bad is it? Someone will just have to explain what "nong as far as the Strine goes," means.
16 out of 20 right... but then, it's easier when you read the stuff. If someone was spouting off a long stream of those colloquialisms I'd be lost!DA Monkey said:
To further develop jingoistic aussie strineability I would highly recommend you take a gander at the following movies "Fat Pizza", "Crackerjack", and "The Black Pudding" - animated version, all are real cracker flicks :b:Trail Nazi said:Only 7 right. I guess I have to watch some more Australian films to catch up on the lingo.
In case you didn't follow DAMonkey's explanation, a nong in US English is a 'dumb@ss' and Strine is 'Australian' (most Australians tend to drop a few vowels as a youngster then as they get older the consonants start falling away too).biscuit said:Someone will just have to explain what "nong as far as the Strine goes," means.

I think we need to make Australian culture as accessible as possible to the running dog US capitalist cultural imperialists so as to simplify out post invasion rule of their country.Originally posted by DA Monkey
Aww Rem, you take all the fun out of being an aussie.
