Dixie or Yankee??

The Coke/Soda debate we had yesterday (its Coke!!) reminded me about this quiz. There are 20 questions that, when answered, will tell you what region it is most common in. Then, at the end, it will compute your score. When ya'll get a chance, take it, and post your score.

I got 74% Dixie!!

P.S. How do you cut and paste the address on here??

Yeah, I'm a Dixie (79%), but I kinda already knew that.

By the way, why do we call gym shoes tennis shoes?? I do, and yet, it doesn't make any sense.
It's about as ridiculous as calling a Dr. Pepper a Coke instead of a soda.

I love a quiz. I took this one twice, since after moving from the midwest to the East Coast I changed the way I said a lot of things. Now, I compute as 63% Dixie, which I find very funny. Growing up, I was 45% Yankee. Who knew that switching from tennies to sneakers could place a person so squarely in the south?

I am 40% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category. Given that I was born in Virginia but have moved around a lot, I suppose that makes sense.

I've lived in PA my entire life, but I somehow scored barely in the Yankee category (44%). Go figure.

I am slightly embarassed, but still slightly proud as I scored a 100% dixie. I kinda figured that I would score high, but hoped my being in DC for two years would tone down my southern aspects.
