North VS South

You Are 0% Redneck
I'll slap you so hard, your clothes will be outta style.
You ain't no redneck - you're all Yankee!

Someone (sorry, not sure who the originator was) put this Yankee or Dixie Quiz on the tag board --and I was fascinated with it. I had NO idea that some of the words in the quiz were regional.
STOP HERE and take the quiz....

Words like SODA, or SNEAKERS are regional?!

There are words that I know are from this area like HOAGIE, WAWA, GEET? (Translation: Did you eat?), radiator (first part rhymes with pad)...but SODA? Caught and cot being pronounced the SAME? And people say we 'sound weird' in Philly?
I loved this quiz... And who knew some people called Mischief Night Cabbage Night....

Am I just completely sheltered in the Northeast (I have been to many a Brew Thru!) or did some of these words surprise you too?
