A Quiz

I found this through the Daily Dish. It's the Yankee or Dixie quiz. I scored 52% dixie. I guess that makes sense, I grew up in New Jersey and lived in Japan, Texas and Florida. I really hate the term yankee though, I don't hear it much here in Florida (although I've occasionally met someone obsessed with the whole yankee/southerner thing, and I do mean obsessed, like can't stop talking about it) but in Texas it was soooo annoying. It's always said in a denigrating fashion, at least that's what it sounded like to me. I guess I just really don't care where someone is from.

Here's a list of dialect maps.
