so, if I put butter and sugar on my grits, im a yankee? tried salt and pepper before, but couldn't see what all the fuss was about.

according to your list, part of me is a yankee, and part of me is a redneck. no need to fear tho, as I wont be a dam yankee for several more years.

does any northeners know the difference between a yankee and a dam yankee? it was explained to me years ago by someone in la (lower Alabama)

A few more:


You think a Pole Cat is a dude that was born in Poland.

You have to get the last word in. And it normally has 4 letters in it.

Half of your vocabulary is made up of curse words.

You donít think any of the jokes on this site are funny.

The state you were born in or live in participated in the war of northern aggression.

You have never driven anywhere without using your horn.

You donít understand why people in restaurants donít talk as loud as you.

You consider being polite a weakness.


Youíll hang up on someone but be offended if anyone turns their back to you.

You pull over to look at farm animals.

You think a Yankee is a baseball player.

It makes you angry that your parents are still alive. And your kids feel the same way.

You buy an expensive car and then park it on the street.

You have had to ask a homeless person to wake up and get out of your car so you can go to work.

Youíve never cooked outside on a grill. Better yet, youíve never cooked.

You think all cars are yellow and have a light on top.

You think okra is a talk show host.

You can be surrounded by crime and ďdidnít see a thing!!Ē

Four things that I had to get used to after moving to Texas in 1969:

1. People saying they going to "carry" someone or were "carrying" someone rather than saying I will give you a lift or gave someone a ride to somewhere.

2. People calling a pond or a big hole in the ground that contains water such as on a ranch a "tank".

3. People calling milk "sweet milk".

4. People giving directions by saying "you go east" 4 miles or "go south 4 miles and then turn south". I was used to people saying " you go right at the traffic light and then turn left"

I married a native Texan girl who came from a small central Texas town and this was how her parents talked.

And a 'poke' is a sack to carry grub in.
And poke salad is edible.

Yeah those are two more, but I have to say that as a kid growing up in a rural area in upstate NY, I remember "city people" coming out and cutting fresh dandelions that grew along the road and making a delicious salad with them.
