The roley poley? Looks like a tiny little caterpillar or centipede if I remember correctly. We would put em in our hand and watch em curl up in defense.

It says I'm 50/50, which is about right, considering where I live.

Well, around here they are called pill bugs I guess, but as a kid we called them armadillo bugs. You find them under things or where it's damp. They roll up in a little, perfect ball about 1/4" in diameter.

I DON'T DO BUGS, DUMPSTERS, OR ARMADILLOS!

SO THAT'S WHY! I knew there had to be a reason.
Thanks!

It's a fun test, but I don't think I'll take it too seriously

I know Uncle Bob.... That's a good thing....
We must be less Yank-y than we thought! I'm 43% (barely) Yankee, too.

In Pittsburgh we called your roly polies Potato Bugs. I'm surprised we neighbors don't share that one in common.. the "pop" I know, though!

Thanks for sharing the quiz, it was a lot of fun. Especially neat that you can see where all of the terms come from.

Me too! I only got 48% Yankee. Now, if they heard me say words like 'coffee' and 'sausage', they'd suggest I was from NYC. I can live with that, I suppose.

And "dog" and "water", VB?

The test is flawed! As a Bostonian, I am WICKED yankee (ironically) and my score was 49%, or just barely.

Puh-LEESE!
