Southern Test

Doc Searls scored a 49 out of 71 on this test of your “southern-ness.” I scored a 48, right there with him. I guessed on a lot of the car and gun stuff, but I really did know the country music and bluegrass things, as well as almost all the food, culture and geography stuff (although I was shaky on the years of states.) It was pretty fun, actually. My wife is fixin’ to take it soon, so y’all should too.

When I went back and looked at the answers part the sentences were different (complete). It was fun though and pretty funny.

  2. D was led astray by the civil war question. I actually filled in the blanks and figured out the choice “War of Northern” was supposed to say “War of Northern Aggression”, even though the final word was missing. I missed only one music or culture question in the whole thing, but was bad on history, dates, guns and one pointed geography question.
