a northerner that have very thick accents and are often quite stuck-up. They typically think that they are walking geniuses and act like they know EVERYTHING which can be quite irritating. Yankees often think they have the right to travel to southern states and get the 'right' to try to correct southern 'rednecks' on how to speak, or what 'proper' grammar is. Yankees are often very judgemental of the southern 'rednecks' and put many of them down because they have accents or dont use proper grammar when really it's just the way that the southerners were raised, and assume that all southerners are 'uneducated, incestuous, and racist'. Yankees also have problems admitting when they are wrong and saying sorry, instead they choose to be smartasses about things.

(not all northerners/yankees are like this, but the vast majority of them are)
yankee: excuse me but please use proper grammar in MY presence (even though I'm the one that has traveled all the way to YOUR area I still have the right to correct you, cause like, I'm better than you) okay?

Originally a term used by dutch settlers in america to refer to anyone who wasn't from holland, this was then used as a derogatory term by the british in the american war of independance and later by confederate americans as a derogatory term for those in support of "the Union" generally speaking northerners. later the term was used by pretty much any non american to refer to an american though particularly from the northern states.
did you see those yankees down the beach today?

a person who lives north of the mason dixon line, basically any state that fought on the union's side in the civil war (the northerners)
My mom doesn't want me to go to school up north because i'll meet a yankee and marry him.

Baseball team from NY. They have "won" 26 rings, but they still suck. They didn't win them. They bought them. Brian Cashman and the organization do their best to buy every slugger/steroid-user on the market. But even with all those sluggers, they lack team chemistry. And a decent pitching staff.

As for the fans, they are the worst types of fans in any sport (Cowboys fans close at 2nd). They're the team bandwagoners love to cheer for (especially because NY has so much money). They are very egotistical, stupid, and classless. The only things they can say are:

"GO YANKEES"
"Red Sox suck"
"JETER IS THE BEST LOLOL"
"1918"
"26 rings"

But they fail to realize that their past accomplishments don't mean shit now. They haven't won a ring since 2000, while the Sox have won 2 since then.

Yankee fans can keep on gloating about their 26 rings for now. But soon, their "loyal fans" will probably ditch them once their team continues to spend more and do worse.
Yankees suck.

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 :)

A group of people that I can honestly say I am, in fact, not jealous of. They seem to be perfectly willing to display their desperation for material possessions and total lack of self-confidence in that they need to fabricate it by way of owning big things to attract your attention away from their small package, which was most likely caused by the steroids many of them use.

And yeah, I'm a Sox fan. Problem is, you can't really refute what I say by saying I'm biased, because I admit the Sox are barely better-almost all athletes are shallow, materialistic assholes. But you notice the Sox are the ones actually taking some care of their fans and not charging $1250 a seat.

Pull your heads out, Yankees; in the end it doesn't matter if you're good or not. You're not curing cancer, you're just playing a sport.
The Yankees may have won more championships, but they're also brilliant choke artists. Man it's fun watching people hop on and off the bandwagon on a game-to-game basis based on if ARod can very gayly knock a ball out of a baseman's hand and expect it to work or not.

A people who migrate to the south because there are more jobs, a stronger economy, better food, and better weather. They also insist on bringing their loud, rude, arrogant, ways with them all the while complaining that home was so much better. They are in a perpetual frantic rush. They talk very fast. They refuse to assimilate to southern culture but expect southerners to do things their way. They are horrible drivers. They do not give firm hand shakes. In the North eye contact is considered a threat.They find the word "Ya'll" offensive but use the word "Youse" in the exact same context. They are tacky dressers. Women have teased hair and outfits that southerners let go of in the 80's. Men rarely open doors for women. Men wear gold jewelry, loafers, and slacks but look down on southerners for wearing boots and jeans. They don't want to live in the South for fear of being "Land-Locked" but many don't swim. They hate Country music because they have no idea what Real Country Music is. Yankees think pick-up trucks and those that drive them are ignorant. They can't conceive that some one might want to drive a pick-up simply because they don't want to drive a car. They don't know that traditionally the term "Red Neck" is a compliment. They don't know the difference between a Red Neck, White Trash, and a Good Ol' Boy or which one a Guido is closely related to. There is no such thing as Northern pride and therefore they can't even begin to understand Southern pride.
Did you see that guy tailgating me at 90 miles an hour? He drives like a Yankee.
