    You put ATV tires on the rear of your Poulan lawnmower so it wont get stuck mowing the barn pasture.

    Your nickname has nothing to do with your real name or anything you did.

    When picking huckleberries you put a joint of stove pipe on each leg to keep away the rattlesnakes.

    You know that "mustard" is not only the yellow stuff you put on hot dogs, but that it is a type of green vegetable.

    You know what a taw and an aggie and a cat's eye are.

    You know what Jack rocks are and what a Jack leg mechanic is.

    You know where the jumping-off place is and someone who has gone there.

    You know what "wool gathering" means.

    You know what "the short rows" are.

    You know what it means when your ma is 'fixin to snatch a nappy knot in your behind'

    Are you a Yankee or a Rebel?

    Here's a short test -

    My score: "48% (Yankee). Barely in the Yankee category."

      Definately a Yankee here! It may explain why I felt out of place most of the time I lived in the South.

          nifocinphx, took the test and only scored 83% rebel and the test asked if I was still using Confederate money, my grandmothers would be ashamed of me for scoring so low. What happened to the other 17% is what I'd like to know?

          freedom2be, yep got more.

          You know you're from the South if...

          You know what Sawmill gravy is.

          You know what the phrase "like a duck on a june bug" means.

          You get a new frock at the start of the new school year.

          You know the difference between a square nab and a round nab.

          You've used sidemeat to draw out the rust when you stepped on a nail.

            38% (Yankee). You are definitely a Yankee.

            Course, here in Maine we never had cold Subs until Subway came to town. We had "Ham Hoagies" and "Italian Sandwiches". We don't have a front "yard", we have a front "door-yard".

              I rated 44%, barely a yankee. Guess that explains why I still always have jowls, cornbread and blackeyed peas for New Year's Day.
