64% (Dixie). A definitive Southern score!
Raised half my childhood in North and half in South. Many years in Midwest and last 22yrs in South. Most people can not read my accent to any particular region.

30% [Yankee] You show a very strong Yankee score. They should have asked is it a purse or pocketbook or do you pronounce water: wautr or wahter.

50% (Yankee). Barely into the Yankee category

some of these responses cracked me up:
Runs through a band from Pennsylvania to Michigan and Minnesota
All of the southeast United States and Texas
All of U.S.; slightly favors the southeast
Most common in Pennsylvania and eastern Ohio

Pennsylvanian all my life, but exactly half of my answers had something to do with the South.

57% Dixie.

Why would you throw toilet roll all over a house? You'd score 100% loony if you did that round here.

It's a mild form of vandalism that does no real harm. Often times highschoolers do it to a favorite teacher or principal as a good natured way of showing affection especially during homecomings or graduations..
