Been living in the South since 2002. Does that make me a Southerner? Let's check the stomach contents.


I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't born and bred in the South, but I'm sneaking up on living down here for 20 years. Does that make me Southern yet? Depends on who you ask I guess.

But there is one way to judge, and that's with your stomach. I took this test and landed with 8 items.

I gave it to a few other Upper Midwest transplants and we all seemed to land in the "Bless Your Heart" category. One girl hit "Damn Yankee". I felt bad for her until she said she's never eaten Chicken Fried Steak. WTH! I was eating that up in North Dakota for years. They don't have Chicken Fried Steak in Detroit? Burn the city down. It's a lost cause.

I've never heard of a couple of the items. What the hell is Burgoo? Or Souse for that matter. Unless either one of those words is "Southern" for a double cheeseburger, we're going to have to take a hard pass on those.
