1. Any persons from a northern state, who takes it upon themselves to put down southern states (and southern residents) by making illogical comments.
2. A loud mouth who can't resist that urge to put down southern states by using out-dated stereotypes and offensive terms.
1. "This new dick head at school must be a yankee"
2. " I thought I heard a pissed off bird, but it was just a Yankee squawking about The South, which ironically is where they just moved to."

Originally used by British settlers in New York (New Amsterdam) for the Dutch: it's a combination of the names Jan and Kees, very common Dutch male names.
What's that Dutch bloke called? I want to buy Manhattan from him for 1 dollar.

Oh I don't know, their names are so hard to remember. Just call him Yankee, you can't go wrong then.

A total douche bag who is from (typically) new york. They are rude people and all they give a shit about is money. They could care less about anything important in this world except from themselves and they aren't important at all considering NY is so full of these pricks that if one dies theres always a backup for his sorry ass.

1. Yankees hate the south from birth for no reason at all but they move down here and bother us all with their stuck-up asses and act like they all of a sudden own the place.

2. You can never have fun with a yankee because they are such uptight sons of bitches that anything you try to do with them besides watch a mafia movie or argue with them about stupid shit like how southerners are such rednecks they will always complain about something, even the tiniest thing.

3. Yankees are known for their repulsive attitudes and characteristics such as bitching about stuff that should not be bitched about.

4. a typical yank will try to cause a problem with anybody for no reason at all, especially a southerner.

5. Yankees are hypocritical people.
1. A yankee family just moves into a southern Georgia neighborhood, father and mother are lawyers and kids are typical yankee kids, who play video games and watch mafia movies all day spoiled as hell who have never been outdoors. At first site of anybody outdoors they consider them a 'dirty redneck' and they consider anybody who doesn't take a shower 3 times a day a dirty person. They criticize everybody in the neighborhood for not having perfect 50 dollar haircuts and almost despise daily clothing (jeans and a white shirt) and consider anybody who doesn't wear a 3 piece suit every day an unemployed or low-class redneck.

2. Hey man come back out here let me show you my garden. Yankee: "Man I don't wanna get my new shoes dirty even tho I got 12 other pairs at home and buy more every week for no fucking reason at all".

A yankee family at the beach. "Yo pop check out this wata, its all salty and shit I ain't gettin in dis fuckin wata, this shit is freezin."

3. A bunch of yankees had their phone line knocked out because of a thunderstorm. In NY where they belong they would go 'oh powers out again' because it always happens in that big cesspool of douchebags they call nyc but in the south they will automatically go crazy and blame it on the stupid redneck engineers and how they don't know how to properly construct phone lines. They will talk as if they could do it themselves but the first thing they do is pick up their cell phones and call the phone company cursing them out in their annoying sqwaking accents saying 'whats wrong with you guys ya dont know how to fix a phoneline? We just moved and and the first thing that happens is the fuckin power goes out what dont you know how to properly place phonlines or somethin ya morons? Huh? Ya stupid dumbass how much is it gonna cost me to get this fixed...ridiculous". They act as if they are the only ones in the neighborhood who lost power and they treat the people as if we all conspired to have their phone line or whatever the fuck it is that they are bellyaching about to piss them off.

4. My family was coming out of an iHop one time up in NY when we took a summer vacation. Some yank opened the door for us and my father said thank you but the guy didn't hear him so he went off on us like a fucking asshole. He started cussing and asking us a million questions at a time like all yankees do when they get angry and we're just like what the fuck is your problem. He was saying 'what don't ya fuckin know how to say thank you? Huh? Ya fuckin asswipe I hate people like you'. Typical asshole yankee.

5. A yankee will drive down the road and if someone cuts him off he will start yelling and honking his horn, after the 'asshole who cut him off' has gone on they will talk to themselves or their family about it for the rest of the car ride, even if its a 6 hour trip to VA Beach. They'll say shit like "what a fucking asshole cant ya see Im driving here you asshole? You got a fucking problem with my driving huh? These fucking hicks in the south cant drive for shit". At that same moment they will cut somebody else off and when that car honks their horn at the yanks they will start screaming at them saying 'what the fuck asshole dont ya know how to drive! Cant ya see Im turning here asswipe!?". Assholes they are the lot of them, and by the way, if you ever see a tag from NY on the road, get the fuck away from him. You will either a: Suffer from road rage because of his moronic driving or
b: Get killed in a car crash because they have no idea how to drive whatsoever.


And if you ever have a yankee move in next to you, don't try to befriend them. They love their privacy because once again they are unsocial assholes who work all day and make a bunch of money for no reason at all. I know a yank and he told me he thought the reason yankees don't like southerners is because 'they are too personal. Its like they wanna know my fucking family when we move in and we want our privacy damn rednecks leave us alone". I told him it was called being friendly but I guess he didnt get the concept. Typical stupid yank :)

The greatest franchise in sports history. Fans of this team respect the game of baseball and find no need to speak about the sexual prefferences of members of opposing teams. Fans of this team know what it is to win and thus know how to react to winning, unlike stupid non sports fans who claim they love the red sox.
Yankees rule, for once SHUT UP Boston

its been said to death but the yankees are, quite frankly, the greatest team in sports. To those of you complaining about the payroll, make up your minds. Half of you say the payroll is the only reason we win, the rest of you say we can't win even with the payroll. I can't agree with either, although the latter is at least more realistic. The majority of the teams chamionships came before all of the money, and that success is in large part the reason for the money being as it is today, admittedly the boss helped a bit as well

Speaking directly to the redsox fans, i find it laughable that you are able to so boldly speak of the 2003 ALCS "choke", when in reality the majority of your team's history in the 20th century has been defined by "choking"; the "curse" was more or less a series of chokes in big situations. In short, i'm glad you were able to snap the "curse" solely because the yankees "choked"...

putting the arguments aside, heres the history: 1903 the team once known as the baltimore orioles move to new york and are called the highlanders. after leaving hilltop park and heading to lower ground the highlander name was no longer appropriate so they became the yankees. The redsox sent a number of players to the team to ensure yankee success and therefore the success of the lesser american league (which reminds me, sox fans, you had a hand in creating the monster you now hate)...you know the rest from there, a lot of winning and championships for a great team in a great park in a great city.
i need to put the word yankees in the example so they'll post my definition
