I borrowed this from Brandon -- another Texan -- who outdid me with a score of 84 percent "Southerliness." For some strange reason, I'm jealous.

Kinda Southern
You are 65% true Southern!
You're okay at this Southern thing, but you've got a long way to go. You've never had a fried turkey for thanksgiving and you have no idea what a Moon Pie is or what the "RC" in RC Cola would stand for, if you'd ever heard of it to begin with. But you're pretty straight on the Southern attitude, if not specifics on the culture.

I would suggest spending a summer down here, but you might melt if you're outside absorbing local color. Um, maybe winter break you could come thaw out Southern-style. You could see a Living Nativity or Singing Christmas Tree. And eat grits with Christmas dinner.

Oh, give me a break. I do too know what a Moon Pie is and what "RC" stands for. I've spent every summer of my life but one in the South. And I've been in a living nativity scene. (Not as a character from the story, but as a member of an affiliated children's choir.) If there's anything I lack, it's identification with the attitude, not knowledge of the culture.

They always get these things all wrong.
