Yankee or Good Ol Boy Like Me Test

http://www.alphadictionary.com/articles/yankeetest.html

Scored 92.* Sorry to let my ancestors down by not making 100.* Must be that daggum television influence like the Sopranos.* Yall just realize this was based on some pointy headed harvard junk research.* Bet they have never tried to gig a frog.

34. I'm surprised to learn that there's lots of Pennsylvania left in my vocabulary, too.

Re: Yankee or Good Ol Boy Like Me Test

I scored 66, just south of the Mason-Dixon Line. *Funny, considering my family's from deepest, darkest, most inbred south Arkansas. LOL *But I grew up out west, and some of the questions had more than one answer that I would use. *(I'd use y'all or you-ins, for instance, though I prefer y'all.)

22%, not surprising. Grew up in NY/NJ, but Mom is from Ohio, and I went to school outside Cleveland. I (mostly) don't sound like a Nuyawker. I can easily pass for OH, MI, not heavily accented parts of PA, and CO.

"44% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom."

I think if the test were broader, my score would go down.

"57% Dixie. Barely in Dixie". Which I guess is right, considering I'm maybe 50 miles below the Mason Dixon line. Also, my family's background is part Pennsylvania, part Tennessee, and part Nof Cuhlyhna, so I guess that gets me a bit mixed up. :P

25%, a Yankee Doodle Dandy. Where I grew up, Connecticut was considered too far south to qualify as "Yankee."

30%, higher than expected due to answering "Coke" and "TP", I grew up in downtown Los Angeles, everybody said that there.

36% - definitely a Yankee even though I lived in Maryland for 30 years and now live in Virginia.

If you're really talented at it, you're proficient with the clamp gig and can then clean them fresh back at the house! Besides, i find it always entertains the guests if you let one hop around while you clean the others.

35%. I'm still a hoagie-eating, pop-drinking Pennsylvanian, even though I've been in Maryland for 22 years.

Re: Yankee or Good Ol Boy Like Me Test

I went frog gigging a couple of times with a neighbor growing up in Ohio. I still have the "gigger" thing, too....but find enough outdoor activities in Wisconsin that dont think about it.... Makes good for knocking off hornet nests off of the house....

Yeah! I grew up in the LA area too and we always said "TP someone's car" or "TP someone's house"!
