I didn't know where the bowties, show business/stereotypes/Yankee Business, and all that came from. To me, reading that seemed less like a reference to the Yanks logo and more like you were trying to say northeasterners look like Mr. Peanut! I didn't get it.

Once again...in the South, "Yankee" means anybody NOT from the South. You can be from California or Kansas or Vermont, and you'll be a Yankee in Alabama. You can make it different in your home state, but that's what it is here. Cheers!

It's funny because people in CT consider Kansas part of the South. I don't know why, but they do!

People in Connecticut need to be reeducated if that's the case.

I was born and raised in Connecticut and never thought Kansas was part of the South. I've actually never heard anyone in CT refer to it as part of the South either. I would consider it "Heartland" or "High Plains".
