Yankee or Dixie: take the test


Take the test linked below to see if you're Yankee or Dixie. I was disappointed to find out I was barely Yankee.

Record your score in the comments.

Go here to take the test.

58% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.

Which is fair because Texas is not the south, it is Texas.

53% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.

Lyle Burton said...

Hey, Y'all. Ah'm 89% Dixie. Course we did live in southern Missippi (spelled the way it's pronounced) for a while.

My wife scored 53% Dixie!

I can't believe it..You all seem so smart.

JON MEYERS said...

45% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category.

Jim said...

56% Dixie. I think I'd kill myself if it weren't a sin.

Nathan said...

I'm kinda emabarrassed...only 44% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category

Reepicheep said...

Hilarious! The Stylish Innovator, Mr. Jon Meyers, is more Yankee than Nathan or I!

malcolm said...

68% dixie. I'll buy y'all a coke the next time I see you. C'mon Brian, you had to get beverage barn right didn't you. It is every Texan's legacy to have bought at least one sixer in a drive through.

Reepicheep said...

I doubt it Malcolm, Brian was baptist.

58% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.

Way down south in...Spring Hill!!!!

The South will rise again! 58% Dixie.

Reepicheep said...

Brit, aren't you from Colorado? We (the Union) didn't burn down any cities there, did we?

barnezy said...

71% Dixie. That's how I roll Ya'll! HA HA HA!

Reepicheep said...

FYI:

If over 60% dixie, you are a total redneck, backwater, hick.

tomi said...

Just wanted to see your face Tony, the Peruvian Predator scored 46% in the test...Barely yankee, I just don't really know what it means...

Zach said...

I'm 96% Dixie ("Is General Lee your father?"), but in a Flannery O'Connor kind of way, bless her little heart.

Shoot, it's been a coon's age since I took a test like that.

jeff said...

I'm shocked to say that I scored 49% yankee (barely a Yankee).

I'm born and bred in Jersey. Oh, well, I guess it's because I really like grits,BBQ, and biscuits & gravy...

I am 70% Dixie....I guess it's fair to say I'm a hick.....hee hee

68% Dixie, which is fine, because i am 116% TEXAN!! WHOOP! Is that the drugs talking?...NOPE!

barnezy said...

Pastor T,I've killed men for less than that. Let's rephrase that since this is a holy blog.... I've assisted certain individuals (who did not have the diving protection of God) with the task of crossing over into the next life with my motivation being something significant than the redneck slur that was just thrown at me. But you seem to have the divine protection from the Lord since I was unable to engage you earlier today outside of the Church. We'll see how long you can dodge the barnezy.

MOBUGZ said...

45% yankee. How about that Mr. Jon. A pig farmer from Pike County Missouri and a corn fed Iowa boy are more Yankee than the guys from Buffalo!

Reepicheep said...

Barnezy- the test doesn't lie...but I will admit, your spelling is too good (with the exception of "diving"protection) to be as Dixie as the test suggests. Perhaps Kansas is wearing off on you and getting the Oklahoma out of you.

Zach said...

I will say that folks from the deep South would laugh at some of the options given in this quiz.

For instance, the deepest Southerners wouldn't say either "ahnt" or "ant", but rather "aint".

Likewise, in the heart of Dixie, the words "cot" and "caught" are indeed pronounced differently (contrary to this quiz), with the latter coming out as "kawt".

And don't y'all puffed up, yankificated folk forget that y'all belong to a dee-nomination that was birthed in Birmin'ham and now calls Hot'Lanta home. :)

Lorie Burton said...

71% Dixie! Mississippi must have worn off on me!

Reepicheep said...

Zach, yes, it's true, the PCA has it's chief roots in the Southern Presbyterian Church, HOWEVER, don not forget the Reformed Presbyterian Church Evangelical Synod joining the PCA in 1982- predominantly a Yankee denom.

Roger Mann said...

“70% (Dixie). A definitive Southern score!”

Interesting, considering I’m first generation American (my parents immigrated from England while my mother was pregnant with me), and I was born and raised in San Jose, California! Go figure!

barnezy said...

My wife corrects my spelling on the love letters I write you and now you (my spiritual leader) corrects me as well. I need to go back to high school for another 7 years.
P.S. insert word "less" before "significant" in my last post.

barnezy said...

are you changing my comments? Why would I write you a love letter? I swear it said "her" no "you", I might need some counseling from the Blur if this keeps happening to me.

Reepicheep said...

Barnezy you crack me up! There is no edit option for comments, I either approve or disapprove. What it says it what you wrote.

Yes, you need counseling with the Blur ASAP!

ha ha.

jeff said...

My beautiful bride got 50% yankee (barely a yankee)

Any hunting stories yet??

Frontier Forest said...

65% (Dixie). A definitive Southern score! Malcolm and I had better scored right there together! And not surprised that Texan Creecy, scored right in there with me and much older, OKC dude.

I just noticed that 0% is pure Yankee. So actually, the lower your score is, the higher your intelligence.

Hi there!
52% Dixie. Barely gray, y'all!
I'm actually from Italy but I'm also a half-Scot, so I suppose I would be a thorough Dixie if I hadn't learned how to say things in Scottish English!
Coca-Cola got the hold of me, that's why I'm leaning on the gray side, I betcha!!!
