OK, so I couldn't resist and took that exam that measures one's "yankeeness". And I can't believe it... I was barely a Yankee! I scored:
49% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category.

What does that mean?! How are they calculating this?! Silly exam... urgh. Now I'm suffering from an inferiority complex!

So Gunny how did you score? :ob

That video of that stupid dog is too funny. Poor thing. It's too hard not to least this one has some brains.

Me? Comment of the week? Thanks! I never really thought I would be able to compete with all the verbally advanced frequenters of this blog.

Michelle, normally witty & biting sarcasm or cynicism has a leg up with the judges, but profound truth rings the bell from time to time as well. Your bell rang loudest and clearest this week.

Jade, I know! I could watch that poor dog all day.

My Score: "86% (Dixie). Did you have any Confederate ancestors?"

That dog video is amazing. We're definitely looking at two different ends of the spectrum here. Clearly, the first dog lives in the north, while the second resides in Texas.

Nice try Gunny, but you were the one who referred us to the stupid dog and I referred you to the smart one! :ob And let's not forget who lives in the North and who lives in the South! :ob

How's THIS for an ever better try?

This is true, Jade, but you have to ask why it was that we did that.

Each of us came across a video foreign to us. I'd never seen a dog that out to luch, since our southern dogs are more like the video you found odd and shared.

Hahaha ... another good one Gunny. But how could I have recognized ingenuity, unless I also fell in that same category? In the same way you would have recognized ... well, do we really need to say any more? :ob Hahaha....

Shoot! And I was doing so well.

Touche' to you, Yankee girl.

Another good Monday post. I scored:
60% (Dixie). A definitive Southern score!
