Do you talk about the Civil War at the dinner table much?

I have met some "history buffs" who are into that sort of thing, but they are the exception.  People who get into festivals and Civil War re-enactments are the redneck equivalent of Star Wars or Dungeons & Dragons geeks.

Why has the rest of the country not tuned in on the glory that is SWEET TEA???

Ironically, my father and I both prefer unsweet tea.  My wife brews iced tea that tastes like cough syrup to me.

Do you consider Maryland northern or southern?

Northern.


Do you consider Maryland northern or southern? What about Kentucky?

Hmm... I guess Mid-western.

Is that like something from "Gone With the Wind", or is it a Jewish bar mitzvah type thing?  I suspect you have the right region, but wrong century.

"Southerner" is different from "redneck". Southerners have cotillions and debutante balls. Rednecks don't.

this is true.

Ah ... sorry for the mistake. I guess it would be like comparing a Boston Brahmin scion to a Masshole.
