Yankee as in Northerner, not American – lol.
This reminds me of that scene on Crocodile Dundee.
Dundee is getting verbally harassed by the lady reporter’s boyfriend who suggests Dundee was experiencing the novelty of “eating something without killing it first.” Despite Dundee’s tough demeanor, he can’t ignore it and punches the man in the face – LOL.
I encountered a Canadian radical atheist in South Korea when I first went there. He threw all sorts of insults at me – unprovoked, mind you – but they was more comical than insulting, reminding me of the Crocodile Dundee scene.
But that man made me wonder how anyone could be that seriously arrogant, especially considering that he wasn’t even drunk. That boggled my mind. You get plenty of jackasses in the South, but it was interesting to finally see one from the liberal camp.
