Going south

Xrlq is officially a yankee instead of a damn yankee. Next, he’ll be drinking sweet tea every meal.

    The southerners I’ve been around always treat “damn yankee” as one word.

    Southern California makes me a Yank? I may be from El Norte but I’m souther than you, at least on the map.

  3. SayUncle Says:

    Yank = not from ’round here ;P

    I always thought that:

    Yank’ = not from ’round here and come down to visit.

    Damnyank’ = he stayed.

    That seems to be the emerging consensus on my blog – to the extent a three year stint means anything, it presumably means I’m less likely to leave than I was before, ergo, it converts me from Yankee to Damnyankee, and not vice-versa.

    That said, I stand by my original pronouncement: if you’re south of I-40, or anywhere near it for that matter, you ain’t a Yankee.

    What about the stuporgroup from the 1980s that actually call themselves the Damn Yankees? Did they all move here, too?
