I had no idea that "Cabbage Night" was VT/Western MA-specific. Oh, and the "soda vs. pop" debate is great fun with my wife's Buffalo friends; thankfully, I've pretty much cured her of her "pop" crutch (I've also gotten her to be as big a Pats fan as a Bills, but that was EASY).
TheJadedDog said:40% but the thing is totally biased, if you look at where it says things are centered they are mostly either everywhere or in the south. There's nothing distinctly Northeastern about any of it (and I'm sorry, but that's where Yankees come from people).
Beerthoven said:Not true. I had several responses that were "Common to the Great Lakes" or some such thing. One came up "Used Heavily in Michigan." I think that was the "pop" one.
TheJadedDog said:I'd never heard of cabbage night, hence I think the whole thing is a little bogus.
zero said:It ain't bogus just cause you ain't ( ) heard of it.
Phew. I was starting to think I was crazy. Nobody I know seems to know about cabbage night. Kinda glad though. Hate to have to clean up afterwards.
oh and 37% (Yankee). A definitive Yankee.

I failed horribly!
TheJadedDog said:No offense to Michigan and the Great Lakes region, but you're not Yankees anymore than Arizona is part of Dixie; know what I mean?
bigjohnmilford said:I think I got 50% on that one. None of the people really had a regional accent.
Flyin' Lion said:Not to people in the South, especially certain types in Richmond. Anyone from up North is a Yankee (including us Michiganders).
