Does that classify me as southern? Been thar, dun that as southern as can
be! Oh, those good 40's & 50's!
Are you a Southern? Depends on how you use the word "Tank".

A body of water - you're a Southern.

A container holding water - you're a Yankee.

Don't rest it completely - as I said before,most of Websters definitions refer to it as some sort of container for holding a liquid or gas.

Ok, i ask you this
Isn't water a liquid and in this case being contained? That being the debate, i believe we are talking about a 'tank'

Yes and Yes - and Webster does define one meaning of the word as such.but he refers to it more as a container. Look it up yourself. Plus there are many more definitions of it.

Bailiff - keep your gun holstered.
