Thems-is Fightin' Words!

You Are 96% Texas
Well, butter my butt and call me a biscuit. This ain't your first rodeo!

I had to agree to eat a rattle snake to get 96% Texas.
I'm pretty sure I've eaten snake... well, maybe it was eel tar-tar. I've eat gator before - and frog legs, too. Does that count? I sure wasn't gonna agree to Texas only having five spices (what pansy only uses five spices?). And I wasn't gonna agree that my cowboy and cowgirl pals in Austin are 'NOT REALLY FROM TEXAS'. What kind of trash-talk is that?!

Who wrote that quiz? A Yankee??! "Git a rope."

I am not sure that I could bring myself to eat snake. I suppose it would depend upon how the particular piece looked when it was cooked.


By the way...are the head & tail of a rattlesnake edible?

awww...the link to the quiz is broken. And I'm really wondering how much Yankee is left in this Oregon-born girl after 14 years of marriage to a 5th generation Texan.

That's hilarious!

Thank You!! I'm from Austin and totally didn't get it. Panda-Mom had to call me and explain. I consider myself more than 64% Texan (which is what my score was).

Blue - I was tricked into the snake. My step-dad laughed about it afterwards. If I remember correctly, the gator was the same story. I willingly ate the frog legs (Cajun style with tons of seasoning... they were surprisingly good). I have NO idea if you COULD eat a rattler's head or tail... but WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO? Yuck!

Kim - Yes, I'm something of a long-timer Texan myself. Although, that is mainly my mom's side. My paternal line is from Washington State, Canada and Russia/Germany/Poland not far back in the tree. I think most Americans have such mixed blood that it is a very true statement to call our country "the melting pot".

TexasFred - Howdy, pa'dna! ;) Thanks for the hat tip. Don't that quiz just make you mad?!

Mandy - ;) Yep. You just don't want to tell a Texan they 'ain't Texan... (you might make their eyes bulge out and their guns fling off of their hips!).

Mommy Spice - Austin is a mighty purdy place. Love visiting there. ;) I have a few friends in the general area... and of course, family in every county, nearly!

Glad y'all liked my Yeehaw link. ;)

That's cute. I scored 56% - just about right, seeing as I moved here from MI sixteen years ago.

There's something about TX, though. I can't think of a finer place to call home. :)

You take care, girl.

Howdy Cindy. ;0) I'm tipin' my 10 Gallon Cowgirl hat to ya! ;) I would have never figured you were part yankee. ;) Oh, well... I love you just the same! ;) I am sure glad you moved down South, though. Please don't go back!

Give me a call and let's get caught up on what is going on. :) Tell the boys to write us a letter.
