I demand a recount!

You Are 40% Texas

You're as welcome in Texas as a skunk at a lawn party.

Well, I always knew that I was a little bit different.

Added: Hat tip: South Texian. Thanks Mike!

Anyway, I'm more Texan than you are! Heh.

Well I was born and raised in Houston, and have only lived outside of Texas for 3 years in the late 80's. This test said I was only 20% Texan and called me a "Damn Yankee".

Oh and you know what, Mike? I broke a cardinal rule that I'm usually very good about following--the hat tip! Let me update.

Why I oughta!!! :)

This reminds me of a story. My sophmore year in college a bunch of us went to South Padre Island for a week during summer break. We encountered a group of girls that had the oddest hickish accents I had ever heard. Turns out they were from Lufkin Texas - but I didn't believe them at first. Also being from Texas I asked what type of accent I had - the reply was "you have a city accent".

But I have been told that around my family a bit of a hick accent comes out.

Never would have guessed I was more Texas than you Nancy, but I came out 52%. I guess it make sense since I've lived here longer. Apparently you can take the girl out of Manhattan . . .

How did you answer the question about Austin being a part of Texas?

That YES it is a part of Texas baby! You know who says it isn't? Unpleasant Texas rightwingers (not all TX righties! just some, those of the smirky "People's Republic of Austin" hahaha ilk) and unpleasant albeit well-meaning not-from-Texas lefties. Well-meaning in that they're dissing Texas then saying reassuringly "But Austin's not really Texas!" Uh: YES, it is. And same uh YES it is to you, people's-republic wingers! Texas would not be Texas without Austin, and Austin would not be Austin without Texas, is my firm belief.
