Ever wanted to know if the way you talk is more Northern, Southern or just a standard United States speak? Well, I invite you to take this fun quiz and find out! The Yankee or Dixie Quiz! My result was 57% Dixie OR Barely in Dixie….I have lived in Texas all my life by the way, but most of my responses were common for all of U.S. or Northern more than Southern…which I believe goes to show you, that it’s not always where you were born that determines how you speak.

I was actually so intrigued by the results that I went ahead and took the Advanced version. You can find the link at the bottom of the first Quiz if you choose to do so too! This one put me at 30% Dixie….my Southern friends and family are probably feeling betrayed about now…I’m sorry! 😦

Here are some funny texts I found on a very funny site called When Parents Text. 🙂

  • DAD: What’s the cupid shuffle?
  • ME: A line dance, kind of like the cha cha slide.
  • DAD:  Never heard of it but they’re doing it.
  • ME:  You joining in?
  • DAD:  No not me.  I’m not a line dancer.  I’m always out of line.
  • MOM: I also want a cat that will attack dad when he falls asleep and starts snoring in the living room.
  • ME: Or maybe just an airhorn.
  • MOM: I DO have one of those. A cat would be funnier because he could not get mad at me then.
  • ME: Maybe a cat that can blow an airhorn?
  • MOM: We may be onto something.
  • MOM: A cat that drives a mini semi truck with an airhorn.
  • MOM: Looks like I need to find a remote control semi and an unsuspecting cat.
  • DAD: What are you doing?
  • ME: I’m at Grandma’s house. What do you need?
  • DAD: I want cookies. Chocolate chip. Get them for me. I will pay.
  • ME: Ask mom.
  • DAD: I did. She won’t. Says no. Get cookies please.
  • ME: I will on my way home.
  • (10 minutes later)
  • DAD: Nevermind. Mom found texts. NO COOKIES! ABORT MISSION!
  • MOM: Do you want waffles or muffins for breakfast? Just text “A1” for waffles or “B1” for muffins.
  • ME: Why did you go through all that trouble? Why can’t I just text “waffles” or “muffins”?
  • MOM: We are texting in code! ;););) 🙂
  • ME: Waffles
  • MOM: A1 or B1?
  • ME: WAFFLES
  • MOM: Sooo…A1?
  • ME: Mom. Yes.
  • MOM: I think I would rather have muffins. I’m making muffins
  • ME: Lady Gaga arrived in an egg.
  • MOM: Don’t we all?
The site has a book that just was released called “When Parents Text: A Daily Does of Hilarity”. I SO want that book….Bet you’re not surprised there, are you?
Another site with funny sayings is Overheard Everywhere. There are links to Overheard in New York, The Beach, The Office AND Celebrity Wit at the top of the page as well. Here  is one of the Most Popular Quotes from their page.

We’ll Get You a Milk and an Epi Pen and Let’s See What Unfolds

Five-year-old in cafeteria during kindergarten lunchtime: Mr. Greg, my mom didn’t put juice in my lunch. Can I get a drink from the cafeteria?
Mr. Greg: Sure, I’ll get you something. You want milk?
Five-year-old: Yeah.
Mr. Greg: Regular white milk or chocolate?
Five-year-old: Chocolate.
Mr. Greg: Okay. You’re not allergic to chocolate, are you?
Five-year-old: Yeah.
Mr. Greg: You are? Oh, then I’ll get you white milk. Are you allergic to white milk?
Five-year-old: Yeah.
Mr. Greg: Oh, then I’d better see if they have juice.
(Mr. Greg goes into the kitchen and comes back with orange juice)
Mr. Greg: Here’s some orange juice. You’re not allergic to orange juice, are you?
Five-year-old: Yeah.
Mr. Greg: Do you know what “allergic” means?
Five-year-old: No.

  1. That was a fun quiz. I scored “44% Dixie, barely in Yankeedom” lol, maybe because I grew up living in different states. I like that text about the cookies. It reminds me of my dad asking us girls to bring things to family cookouts that mom doesn’t think he should eat.

  2. haha! I got 50% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom. LOVED this quiz. Going to make my family take it. Despite the fact that I currently live in Massachusetts, I am delighted that it appears I will never be mistaken for “from” here. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ok, so I took both. First I got “45% Dixie. Barely in Yankeedom” and the I got “19% Dixie. Wow! You are a Duke of Yankeedom!” . . . but some of them were inaccurate because my answer should have ”
    none of the above” – like “how do you pronounce water?” – they didn’t have an option for “wooder”!

    Have you ever checked out damnyouautocorrect.com or crazythingsparentssay.wordpress.com? I think you’ll enjoy them!
