    Re: Are you a Yankee or a Rebel...fun survey

    45% dixie...barely in yankeedom...

    not sure why i didn't score lower...grocery "bag" and rhymes with "rout" were my only two "southern" responses...when i used to drink regular coke, i would always ask for a coke, no matter what the carbonated beverage was, but now that i drink diet coke, i always say "pop"...this kept me on the yankee side, thank goodness:

    out of curiosity, how many of you say "youse"? this is a term i grew up with and never even realized how bad it really sounded until a friend of mine brought it up to me and my family...

    I grew up with "you" (sng) and "you" (pl). I hear "y'unz" on occassion, due to my proximity to Western PA.

    I do miss Chicago-isms like "jagoff" and "you want to come with?" Oh and I knew a guy born and raised in Darien who used to pronounce Taco Bell as "TACK-oh Bill".

    78% Dixie. Your neck must be a little pink!

    My grandfather who is 98 and healthy as a horse wears a string tie. It was the DNA that made me this way, as Freddie Mercury used to sing.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    (in my Jeff Foxworty voice) If you score a 91 on the Yankee or Rebel online survey....you might be a redneck. :

    I wanted to use drive-thru but it wasn't there.

    I do say car-a-mel and my kids make fun of me. Sometimes care-a-mel.

    I'm surprised they didn't have "you guys" for addressing a group of people.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    I've lived in the south just about my entire life, and I've always said car-a-mel. Most people I know say it that way. When I heard folks say car-mel after I moved to TN, took a while to figure out what they were saying.

    There are 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

    They wheeled a 3x4 steel safe into the clubhouse Sunday morning to store the players' valuables. It took four guys to lift it off a dolly and onto a table.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    53% Dixie, which surprises me since, at this point, less than one quarter of my life has been down there.

    South Carolina is the only state in the south I haven't visited, though I haven't seen much of North Carolina. Pretty much covered the rest.
