    /takes up lightsaber to defend the littlest state in the union. Clears throat and begins to sing...

    I'm Rhode Island born
    I'm Rhode Island bred
    And when I die
    I'll be Rhose Island dead
    etc etc etc.

    Even though I'm from New Jersey and went to University of Connecticut...ROFL.

    Because some Yankee cooked them for you? ;)

    I spent Thanksgiving in Rhode Island a couple of years ago with some of my husband's Yankee relatives...the scenery is beautiful and my mother-in-law's turkey was awesome as usual, but one of the side dishes was turnips and carrots--supposedly a "traditional New England Thanksgiving dish". Blech.

    Somebody really needs to introduce y'all to sweet potato casserole.

    Meriwyn: That song is supposed to say:

    I'm a Tarheel born
    I'm a Tarheel bred
    And when I die
    I'm a Tarheel dead
    So, ra-ra, Carolina-lina
    Ra-ra, Carolina-lina
    Ra-ra, Carolina-lina
    Ra-ra-ra


    My entire family went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill...one of the nation's oldest universities. :)

    aha! i have found the lyrics to truly the best RI song, finally!

    here's to you beloved rhode island
    with your hills and rolling shores
    we will always love you rhody
    and your patiots of yore
    first to claim your independence
    rich in heritage and fame
    the smallest state
    the smallest state in all the union
    we will glorify your name

    and remember ... you can't spell idarii ... without ... RI :p

    and i thought you'd get a kick out of that, meri :p

    James--if you're reading this, now that you're in New England, stop by our nowhere state of Connecticut once in a while. :)

    Hey! My grandparents are fifth cousins and my sister married our sixth cousin! :p

    Smallest state in the Union...yep...I could stand at one end of the state and shoot a .22 and hit a tin can at the other end of the state. ;)

    And at least we know how to make iced tea here. :D

    Side note: I was IMing last night with a friend from Alabama, and I said, "Why do you reckon these Rhode Islanders are still bragging about winning the Civil War and threatening to send Sherman back down here?" His response summed it up perfectly. "Because they're Yankees. It sucks to be them."

    :D

    What's with you Southerners and guns? Yeah, it's cool to shoot a gun sometimes, but we don't brag about them. And you can't call me a Yankee, cuz I'm from Florida! :D

    Florida isn't really the South, Dowe. ;)

    What's with us and guns? Keeps folks from messing with us.

    Put it this way--I'm driving alone at night in the worst neighborhood in Charlotte, I'm stopped at a red light, someone comes up to me and wants to jack my car and rape me. Which of the following is going to make him think twice: one, my pleading "Please don't do this," or two, my yanking a .45 or a 9mm out of my purse and aiming at his groin?

    I'm actually more politically liberal than most people here--politically liberal enough that I'd fit in better with you guys in Mass--but I've got opinions on people who are pro-gun control. My definition is "hitting your target".

    The main reason for the Civil War was BBQ, don't you guys know that? The South has the best BBQ and the North wanted it. Based on the BBQ I've had in NYC, they still don't have it. :D

    Wait, wouldn't a bedsheet strategically hung from a pole block all sunlight from reaching Rhode Island? We shouldn't worry about these guys. :D

    Give them a break. They work hard. After all the Southerners are my favorite attraction at the zoo these days.

    Although I do admit there is a place in Kingston and Wilmington NC with some danm good BBQ. Maybe we should invade again to take that from you too. :)

    It's "Kinston", hon--Singularity and I are both originally from a town very near there.

    I'll hand you this--you do have taste in barbecue.

    The zoo, huh? Well, I'm a lioness--and I eat Yankees for breakfast. They taste really good with grits and red-eyed gravy. :D

    *waves to the other person from Connecticut* Hi there! Nice state we got, too bad there aren't any more SW fans, huh? Ah, well. I currently belong to the Rhode Squadron anyway cause I go to school in Rhode Island.

    Back on topic... I've had grits down south. And they were still gross.

    My brother likes to pretend he's southern though I wouldn't really call that flattering. He rides around in a pick-up truck waving a Confederate flag listening to banjo music and calling himself a hick.

    That was totally irrelevant. :p *wanders off*

    Yankees pretending to be Southern usually just end up looking like idiots. It's not like we can't tell the difference.

    And yes...back on topic...

    *holds up a Bojangle's chicken leg and some nice, buttery corn on the cob, and a biscuit*

    Oh, JAAAAMMMMMMESSSS...
