Being from the south, I can assure you that that is not always the case. [Big Grin]
In the south, "Yankee" is a pretty universal replacement for "Arrogant, rude, insufferable so and so" in less polite terms. In fact, about the only place that the term "Yankee" isn't often uttered with a curse attached to it is...The North. Or when you're talking about the Baseball team. Except that anyone who hates the baseball team still adds additional verbiage to the term.

Who will sign my petition?

Also, anyone aware that slopes or walls used to regulate water levels are called dykes? I immediately move to rename these things to "wall used to regulate water levels," as the word dyke is also very offensive.

Oh, and we should put massive pressure on England to stop calling cigarettes "fags."

Since "redskin" is offensive, we should also immediately stop calling people "white" or "black" to describe skin pigmentation.

Goodness, what a horrible, offensive world we live in.

Your drive-by posting is getting worse and worse.
