My grandfather fits the Texas sterotype perfectly... Loves potatos.
The only thing that really ticks me off about northerners misconceptions about the south is that they think we're all inbred. What ticks me off even more is that I know about five people who have parents that are related (third cousins, distant relatives, etc.), but the only reason that it's like that is because after 200 years of the same people living in the same area, everyone's related by marriage some way or another.
