English test: Yankee or Southerner?

Listening to NPR this morning, I heard about this fun, 20-question quiz Are You a Yankee or a Rebel?.

You’ve gotta love a test that includes a question like this:

What’s that long sandwich with lots of cold cuts and toppings? 

A. Sub
B. Hoagie
C. Grinder
D. Italian
E. Po Boy

If you like me choose the correct answer, answer “D”, the test says that’s only used in Maine!

I tested as being a definite Yankee Doodle Dandy!
