Your Linguistic Profile:

50% General American English

25% Yankee

20% Dixie

5% Upper Midwestern

0% Midwestern

Sounds pretty accurate to me - though I have lived in FL all my adult life, it's only sort of "the South." Found via Fillyjonk.

On the same page:

You Know You're From Florida When...

You own at least five pairs of flip flops

You know someone who's been struck by lightning

You're more scared of the freaks who live down the street than gators

Your backyard is sometimes a swamp

You're officially sick of Disney

You shrug off hurricane warnings

You've been permanently blinded by fat men in speedos

There are only two seasons - hot and hotter

You've drank a flaming alligator.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from Florida.

Disturbingly accurate.

Knitting content soon, I promise.

I have never had, or even heard of, a flaming alligator" and if I saw one on a menu I'd assume it was a tourist drink designed to loosen up their credit cards!
