71% Dixie. Your neck must be a just little rosy!

Not bad for someone from WV, but doesn’t quite sound like Larry the Cable Guy.

I’m 96 % Dixie-—LOL! I would have thought I was 100% Texan, but they didn’t have that category, apparently.

58% Dixie, which would make sense. My Dads side had roots in NC, SC, TX, and AK moving West just prior to the Great Depression, and my Dad married a woman who family came from Minnesota.

43% dixie here...I think there was a problem with one question. As I understand it, “frosting” on a cake has a butter base + flavor. “Icing” is confectioner’s sugar + flavor. Icing is meant to harden to a shell, like on petit fours, frosting is supposed to stay soft (though after a few hours in the fridge, its softness becomes theoretical). IOW, they’re not the same thing, so tracking a regional difference doesn’t really work. /pedant mode

76% Dixie.

Not from Texas, but I got here as soon as I could, which is a good thing, because if I had remained in California I'd hafta fight in the upcoming civil war alone and outnumbered!

Although born and raised in CA, I consider Texans "my people". It's a values thing, and my family just doesn't get it.

When I think about where and in what environment I want to raise my kids in, it's a no brainer.

California: Due to brainwashing in the schools, your kids hate you. They blame you for oppressing them for 400 years. They dye their hair green and dabble in lesbianism and marxism. Their liberal indoctrination is so pervasive they tell you that they are never having kids because humans are a plague upon the earth. Your family line ends with them.

Texas: Your kids love you, and are thankful for the blessings bestowed upon them by their creator. They are respectful and well-behaved except for that one weekend at the river with the Coors light girl/dumb Aggie boy. They go into the military after/during/before college, and make you proud. They meet and marry a nice Texas boy/girl and continue the cycle that God created, giving you fat, happy grandchildren.

I got only 97% on the advanced test. Guess it was because my grandmother was from Indiana and passed along her yankee talk to my mother. Wish they’d do a separate test for Texans - we say a lot of things differently from Deep Southerners, like “warder” instead of “wawduh,” but we’re still Southern!

dumb Aggie boy. They go into the military after/during/before college, and make you proud.

A little confused by this as Texas A&M sends more graduates to the military than any university outside of the service academies. And of course the old joke, "what do you call an aggie 5 years after graduation? Boss." Might make more sense if we were talking about a dirty Sooner who snuck across the border.

FWIW, I'm only a little Dixie at 53%. I guess pretty accurate for an Oklahoman.

Ah yes, the venerable arroyo. Dry all year round, except in monsoon season, then they have the ability to alter the landscape.

This poll is bogus.

Many of the answers are don’t jive with my experience as a born-and-raised New Yorker.

Here are three questions which skew the results.

Question 4:

4 How do you pronounce the second syllable in pajamas?
A-Sounds like jam
Result: Southeastern US

I never heard pa-JAM-as growing up. It was pa-JOM-as. pa-JAM-as is what you hear toward the midwest and Chicago. Maybe Boston too.

Question 6:

6 Do you pronounce “cot” and “caught” the same way?
C-Caught = kawt
Result: Way down South in the land of cotton.

The cotton must be high in the five boroughs of NYC because we all pronounced it like “kawt”, just like we say “tawk” for talk and “kawfee” for coffee.

Question 18

18 What’s the night before Halloween called?
C-Mischief Night
Result: Centered heavily on New York City and New Jersey.

In 45 years, 30 in Queens and 15 in Nassau County I never once heard the night before Halloween referred to as “Mischief Night”. It was given no special name at all. According to Wikipedia “Mischief Night” is used in Northern New Jersey, and everyone in New York knows that “Joisey” is on a different planet from New York. :)

PS: Only the truly ignorant in New York say “youse guys” and “ax” for “ask” as in “let me ax you something”. We would say either “you guys” or “all of you” slurred together like in “all-a-ya get offa my lawn”. Note that “of” often gets contracted to “a” and attached to the preceding word as in “get outta here”.

The stereotype of Aggies as dumb has to do with their unaffected worldview. They do not have a lot of inner conflicts. They know their parents love them and that God has a plan for them. They love their country and their state.

I lived in College Station for 2 years while my now-wife got her MBA from A&M. It was quite an eye-opener for me, having lived my life in the SF bay area, where their is an undercurrent of anger and hostility towards anyone not in your peer group. (What, you're not a one-legged transgender vegan? You suck!)

Bump into a guy in a bar in California, and you get hassled. Bump into an Aggie at the Dry Bean and you'll make an new friend, and get invited over to their BBQ the next day.

Forgot to mention that I now live in Georgia and married a Georgia Peach.

She says “sack”, “buggy”, “hose pipe” and “the trash runs tomorrow”, but I’ve turned her into a NY Yankees fan and I’ve been teaching her some NewYorkese.

She now knows what “mook”, “chooch” and “shmuck” mean.

Cultural exchange, It’s a beautiful thing........

I read an interview with a producer of Jessica Alba’s new movie which filmed in Oklahoma. He said he couldn’t get over how nice everyone in Oklahoma was. He said they would go out to a bar and before the night was over have several invites to go out on the lake the next day.

11. I’ve got it all on the C: drive.

I'm a little confused on this one. Does that mean they don't have computers or does it mean they have computers with multiple drives? Or maybe they only have an A: disk drive? Or something completely different?
