    Not bad. Didn't have any specific expectations. I got a lot of Midwest/Michigan area answers, probably cause I was born there and heard the same dialect from my brothers after we moved to southeastern Arizona. Than adopted the national dialect there, and now living in Boston I've got some more new Yankee words to spit out. At least I wasn't totally currupted by my 6 month stay in Biloxi, MS.

    Most of my answers were "general population" or "throughout the whole United States".

    A Minnesotan living in Texas, go figure.

    I was so hoping for a "bag/bagel" question. FYI, They are said differently

    Somewhat surprising, as I've lived in Massachusetts my whole life. Granted, they didn't have the right options for some of the questions, like "What is that bubbly carbonated drink called?" It's obviously 'tonic' and that wasn't an option. Also some of the answers they said were southern, but they are native to New England too.

    Even though I am Canadian and some of my ancestors came from the US during the Revolutionary War, I scored 64% Dixie. Go figure. Mind you I guessed on a couple. Who the hell throws toilet paper over the roof of a house? And the last one I never heard of (the bug that rolls up when touched).

    36% Yankee. Definitive. No shock there.

    What's more amusing is if you go through it's not only Yankee, it's very clearly New England with a strong bias to MA. Including that oddity of Western MA, "Cabbage Night"

    67% Dixie... Although I've never heard a guy referred to as a Dixie.

    Born in Maryland, though, maybe being too close to the line's messed me up some.

    Oh yeah, and my dixie wreckedicon_smile.gif
