Take This Test

And let me know how you do. My friend Libby sent it to me. I'm actually a little surprised that I didn't do better (worse?). The "cot" and "caught" question messed me up, I think. I definitely don't pronounce them the same, but I do pronounce "caught" more like "cawght." Y'all know I love my dubyas, hence my pronunciation of "frawg." Ribbit.

What was Libby's score? I'm guessing pretty Dixie...

Ole Miss Mom said...

"91% (Dixie). Is General Lee your father?"

That's what it told me. What can I say.

Fiddle-dee-dee, I still got it:

98% (Dixie). Is General Lee your father?

Yee-haw! I win!

Bowlby said...

Daggum, Brooke! I bet not even Tina Gordon would get a 98%!

Brooke said...

Yeah, I think it was the fact that I call 'em "crawdads" that put me over the edge.

stephinbham said...

Wow. Libby got 94% Dixie. You beat her, Aunt B, and she's from Mississippi!

Nat and Mrs. Demaree, if you'd stay down here for a couple weeks, I bet we could do some damage to that Yankee score.

And, welcome, Ole Miss Mom! I won't hold it against you. Thank your stars you don't cheer for an orange team ;)

53% (Dixie). Barely into the Dixie category.

stephinbham said...

Hmm, Lindsey. I'm surprised too!

Who are you, anonymous???

Leah said...

94% (Dixie). Is General Lee your father?

And my dad's from Ohio!

Summah said...

71% (Dixie). That is a pretty strong Southern score!

I'm actually really surprised. My dad always used to get on to me about how I talked. He said I talked like a Yankee. Guess I sure showed him.
