There are some really stupid commercials for Indiana Beach Amusement Park that always make references to corn. Their slogan is "There is more than just corn in Indiana." They even go so far as to have superheros that are made of corn, and their mascot is a crow. It makes our state look like a bunch of redneck farmers.

Hehe. I forget about this test. I took it again and got:

22% Dixie. You are a dandy Yankee Doodle.

I think the last time I took the test I received a score of 10% Dixie.
I currently live in E Kansas.
