I guess pretty much everyone has heard of the “You Might Be A Redneck If” jokes, created by Jeff Foxworthy, but have you thought that there are probably just as many “You Might Be A Yankee If” jokes.

Sure, why shouldn’t there be Yankee jokes as well as Redneck jokes!

If you come from the North, how many of these can you identify with?

  1. You’ve never had an RC cola.
  2. You have no idea what a polecat is.
  3. You think Heinz ketchup is really spicy. And the further south you go, the spicier the food, Cajun being the best of course.
  4. You want your son to grow up to be a lawyer instead of having his own fishing show. Down South fishing is life!
  5. You eat fried chicken with a knife and fork. It’s just not the same if you don’t pick it up.
