How can you really tell the difference between Northern guys, Southern folks, and West Coast kids? One true test lies in the way we stuff our face.
Northerner's argue amongst each other about the true way to dress a hot dog. A "Coney" is served "Mustard ONLY." In Chicago you top the frank with relish, tomatoes, mustard, dill pickle and absolutely NO KETCHUP! Who makes the best "Philly" steak? What's the difference between hoagies, grinders, heroes and subs?
Southerner's spend copious amounts of time discussing who makes the best BBQ. Texas, Carolina, Memphis, or Missouri. Wet or Dry. Mustard, Ketchup, or Vinegar based. The debate goes on and on! If you ask them about it make sure you have some time to talk.
West Coast Kids spend their time at the beach, hiking a mountain or just taking in the great nature they have been blessed with. They don't expend as much energy arguing amongst each other. They put whatever they want, on whatever they want, and don't think twice - like fruit on pizza. A west coast kid truly believes the best type of BBQ is a good bonfire on the beach and a straight stick to grill a weenie on.
Have a Happy 4th of July! Make sure you spend more time eating and less time arguing, because all of it is GOOD!
