Default Very interesting, and entertaining! :)

"22% Dixie. You are a dandy Yankee Doodle." ~ Advanced
"36% Dixie. You are definitely a Yankee." ~ Original Recipe

Yeah, that doesn't surprise me. Funny enough though, I ran into an old nemesis on the original: You all, y'all, you guys, youse guys. I got a "common nearly everywhere" response after I selected you all, to which I let out a loud "Ha, I thought so!"

Sadly mine said 13% Dixie....BUT looking at the answers I talk a lot like the West and Midwest and not at all like New York, New Jersey, or New England. 13% Dixie oh well....but if I score less than 10% on the New York/New England test I'll be satisfied

0% Dixie
Do you need help digging out of the snow.

I currently live in Kansas, but am moving to New Hampshire.
I have never lived in any area south of 38N latitude.

I scored that too. And like you, I'm a Texan. I have to admit my first 11 years were spent in DC and Ohio. "Y'all" and "fixin' to" really whipped heads around when I went to school in MI however.

50% Dixie...

I'm really confused that "syrup" pronounced "Sur-rup" not "Si-rup" or "Si-rip" is only southern. The only way I know how to pronounce it is like introducing a noble, "Sir Up."
