I always thought 'malts' or 'malted' for 'milkshake' was just a term older people would use (although you can still get a malted shake if you look, they are tasty) because I remember that is what my grandfather would sometimes call them (but then again, he was from nyc so perhaps it was a regionalism, but I'm still not sure because the quiz is suspect in my mind).

Yes, General Lee was a true Southern Gentleman and a Christian. He didn't like slavery either.

He took communion with a black man after the war in a church in Alexandria. And everyone else followed suit.

I think this test is kinda stupid. I've lived in Louisiana my whole life and I've never heard some of the things this test said were extremely common in the South.

Even after living all over, I have retained my roots.
No matter where I go, and it's been 14 yrs since I left KY, people always ask if I am from TN,KY or somewhere around there. It makes me proud.

Same here. Surprised that mine was this high. I should've been less than 1% Dixie.
