    Well, me, too, considering the Long Island Iced Tea has a shitload of liquor and the awesome elixir sweet tea does not. Unless you're my grandmother, in which case all bets are off and you better sip before you swig.

    I have no idea why you think that (1st part) - the people I've seen who sport the flag are the most hardcore southern people around. Well, aside from reading southern lit... I'm not sure about that one...

    And thank you for inviting us to leave the country. And for telling us that what we thought meant something actually does NOT. I can't imagine how that delusion managed to spread the way it did.

    So some people squawk about seceding. Big deal. It's not like the entire population of a state agrees about it. Obviously you are cynical about southern pride but that doesn't make it meaningless for the rest of us.

    Yeah, that sounds French-Canadian— or at the very least extreme northern Maine.

    Hey, I've heard it... and now I've googled and it DOES exist.. apparently pretty common in St. Louis:
    The New Madrid thing is not really St. Louis and also not really an accent. That's how it is said - like Houston, TX and Houston Street in NYC. But yes, St. Louisans have accents. One need look no further than the word mom, which apparently has no A in it. There's also the old school St. Louis accent that has pretty much been lost in the younger generations, but you can still find it among the elders. This lovely diction includes words like zinc (sink) and bat tree (battery). There is also St. Louis French. The French would faint if they knew how we were pronouncing Gravois and Chouteau. I think the most prevalent today is turning Os into As.
    Do ST Louisans have an accent?? is there such thing? any special words? | Saint Louis | Yelp

    Hell's bells, Missouri was totally schizophrenic on the whole Civil War anyway. They played on both sides, had 2 separate governments, the state was represented on both flags.

    I think anything having to do with 'zinks' was from the secessionists.

    Wait, who the fuck says "zink" in St. Louis!? I mean, we're talking about the word sink, right? Like, to the bottom of the ocean? Everything but the kitchen? Nobody says that with a Z in, uhh, most of Missouri. Also we're definitely NOT the North, and I'm pretty sure "worsh" for the word wash is a Southern/Midwestern thing (although most big cities in the Midwest shy away from that pronunciation). I think "warsh" with that really nasal A is more Northern.

    I don't care about this issue in general, but I've seen my fair share of Confederate flags flying and my gut reaction is to feel a bit nervous/uncomfortable when I see it. Not making a judgment call on the South in general or anything, but the flag still doesn't quite sit right with me.

    What I see every day flying over city hall:



    The state flag. And confederate flag by itself is on everything in MS. If the confederate flag makes you nervous, don't come here. I would be perfectly happy if they got rid of it, but don't see that happening.

    I'm from the Northeast and we do not say WURSH, bitches!

    Anyway about the flag: When I'm in the south or see a southerner wearing it I get that it's a symbol of southern pride. When my neighbor, born and raised up here, puts it on the back window of his pickup truck, it makes me look twice at him. His shaved head and prison tats don't help. I mean, wtf, he's not from the south so what's that flag mean to him?
