Re: Yankee's and such
Greetings from Tibor.
Someone once explained to me that for people ...:
... in Texas, anyone outside Texas is a Yankee.
... in Europe (or Canada), anyone in the US is a Yankee.
... in the US west of the Mississippi, anyone east of the Mississippi
is a Yankee.
... in a southern US state south of New England, anyone from any
region north is a Yankee.
... in New England, anyone from Mass. is a Yankee.
... in Mass, anyone from Boston is a Yankee.
And of course people in Boston have no idea what a Yankee is!
I also learned while I lived in Miami, that in Florida "The further south
you go, the further North you get."
And, sir, as a Boston resident, I assure you, we know darn well what a
Yankee is. It is a terrible baseball player from NYC.
