Blue Necks are Northerners -- the opposite of Rednecks. Because of all the Redneck jokes, here are some takes on how Southern folks look at Northerners
(or how Northerners sometimes think of themselves). YOU JUST MIGHT BE A BLUE NECK IF . . .

**Instead of referring to two or more people as "Y'all," you call them "you guys," even if both of them are women.
**You think barbecue is a verb meaning "to cook outside."
**You think Heinz Ketchup is really SPICY.

**You would never stop to buy something somebody was cooking on the side of the road. (e.g., boiled peanuts)
**You don't have any problems pronouncing "Worcestershire sauce" correctly.

**For breakfast, you would prefer potatoes-au-gratin to grits.
**You don't know what a moon pie is.
**You've never had an RC Cola.

**You've never, ever eaten okra -- fried, boiled, or pickled.
**You eat fried chicken with a knife and fork.
**You've never seen a live chicken, and the only cows you've seen are on road trips.

**You have no idea what a polecat is.
**You don't see anything wrong with putting a sweater on your dog.
**You don't have bangs.
**You would rather have your son become a lawyer than grow up to get his own TV fishing show.

**You drink either "Pop" or "Soda"- instead of "Cokes."
**You've never eaten and don't know how to make a tomato sandwich.
**You have never planned your summer vacation around a gun-'n-knife show.

**You think more money should go to important scientific research at your university than to pay the salary of the head football coach.
**You don't even have one can of WD-40 somewhere around the house.

**The last time you smiled was when you blocked someone from getting on an on-ramp to the highway.
**You don't have any hats in your closet that advertise feed stores.
**You have more than one professional sports team in your home state.

**You call binoculars opera glasses.
**You can't spit out the car window without pulling over to the side of the road and stopping.
**You don't know anyone with at least two first names (i.e., Joe Bob, Faye Ellen, Billy Ray, Mary Jo, Bubba Dean, Joe Dan, Mary Alice).

**You don't know any women with male names (i.e., Tommie, Bobbie, Johnnie, Jimmie).
**You don't have Maw-maw's & Pawpaw's.
**You get freaked out when people on the subway talk to you.
**None of your fur coats are homemade.

You have described me perfectly! What is a tomato sandwich?

BTW: I eat fried chicken with fork and knife... and I also eat Pizza with a knife and fork!

Oh, by the way, if somebody talked to me in the Mexico City subway, I would really be freaked out.

Just talked to my mother. She says that eating fried chicken with your bare hands is as civilized as Attila of the Huns!

There is one detail: In Spanish it is a common custom to have multiple first names. Mine is: VÃ:censor:ctor Herminio. It is also customary to have two surnames, your father's and your mother's:

VÃ:censor:ctor Herminio RodrÃ:censor:guez Roldán.

Therefore we have longer names.

you cut a tomato into rings place it on top of mayo or my preferred miricle whip (on bread ) and eat it

Atleast thats how this Blue Neck does it :P

Guilty as charged - I'm a blueneck. However, we always had a can of WD40 around, and, although we didn't eat tomato sandwiches, we did eat lettuce and tomato sandwiches, or BLTs. Otherwise, the description fits, though I may have eaten okra on a trip south of the Mason-Dixon Line!

The jimmies I know are the sprinkles you put on ice cream-is that right?


Mmmm, tomato sandwiches. Toasted white bread, butter, miracle whip and a little salt-God's perfect food!
post #11 of 22
In that case it doesn't sound too appealing, I prefer BLT. Anyway, what is an okra?
post #12 of 22
yoviher - an okra is a disgusting vegetable - it tastes like dirt to me

here is a pic of one okra

Our tomato s/w's are fresh bread and fresh tomatoes, YUMMY! Okra's are something I haven't heard of, however they look disgusting.

PIZZA with a knife and fork???!!!??

After my dad owning a pizza parlor for 2 years I can gladly say I never came across one person who ate pizza with utensils LOL, isn't that why god gave us hands?

and btw what is miracle whip?
post #14 of 22
looks like dirt to me!
post #15 of 22
Germans always eat pizza with utensils - I really stick out in pizzarias! Miracle Whip is a mayo "clone" made by Kraft - it has a different fat content and spices, but it's basically mayonnaise. I like the Miracle Whip low-fat "Balance".
post #16 of 22
Remember when someone shared that thing about how Kraft tests their products on people here? Like that "The meatrix" but it was the kraft food one,well since then I haven't eaten anything to do with kraft food and I don't plan on eating any kraft foods in the future.(Not a big company here anyway) I kind of guessed MW was like Mayonaise(mmmmmm yummy! "eta" is the best brand ever for this!) Thanks Jcat.


*just finished a ham/coleslaw/mayo & tomato s/w*

I'm a Southern Californian, however, I don't think you'd consider me a Southerner. However, I have eaten Okra, which I think is some kind of corn thingy, I could be wrong about that, but Okra is horrible. I eat chicken with my fingers, and only with a knife and fork if it is falling apart. I think a Polecat is a skunk. I have bangs, and I do call Soda's, soda. However, the rest of the Northerner stuff fits me.
post #18 of 22

I'm in Texas, and I've never even heard of a tomato sandwich until seeing it in this thread.

Fresh okra isn't very good - it's kind of slimy. But I love pickled okra, and fried okra, if it's done right...mmmmmmm...had some tonight, actually! Can't even imagine eating fried chicken with utensils.

How would you eat fried chicken with a knife and fork? Seems more trouble than it's worth.

Some of those are true for me, although Heinz isn't spicy, and I do know what a polecat is.

I"m a northerner born and bred, but tomato sandwiches are an italian thing. I can remember my mom eating them for as long as I can remember! I've had fried okra, and okra in soups, you can only find them in specialty stores up here. I admit to thinking barbeque is a verb. In NY, street vendors for food is the norm. We call moon-pies scooterpies! We don't drink POP...thats a Mid-western term. We do drink soda. I've had and sold RC Cola. My idea of spicy isn't ketchup. But the rest..extremely true! Especially the smile at the on-ramp.

BLASPHEMY! Okra is an absolutely wonderful vegetable. It is excellent by itself fried, pickled, boiled, steamed, with rice and is also a prime ingredient in mucho cajun food.
