Hmm, you can take the New Yorker out of New York, but -- well, it's remarkable, really:

Dixie Royal
You are 84% true Southern!

You are pure belle or gentleman! You know your Jones Soda, Nehi and RC
colas, your Moon Pies and sweet potato pie; you'd absolutely die
without air conditioners in the summer, and you've seen Steel Magnolias
and Fried Green Tomatoes (or read the book!). Your grandmother lives in
an antebellum home and has a cook who makes the best fried chicken and
asparagus casserole and summer squash and everything else in the world.
And you know the taste of honeysuckle and the feel of grass between
your toes.
You are blessed.
