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?

A person from the Northern part of the United States of America who carries on the long Yankee history of activism and reform. These include the movements to abolish slavery, and the suffragist movement to acquire equal rights for women (See: Harriet Beecher Stowe, Yankee Abolitionist and Susan B. Anthony, Yankee Suffragist). Logic, reasoning, and education are valued highly by Yankees and used to champion freedom and equality for all Americans. Yankees have a strong sense of civic duty and culturally are known for straight-forwardness, time management, frugality, and thinking on their feet. Ivy League schools in the North are often associated with Yankees and have yielded many of America's top leaders and thinkers.
"The Yankee abolitionists welcomed slaves from the South that had traveled the Underground Railroad."
"The Yankee suffragists sacrificed their safety and livelihoods to win the vote for women."
"Her Yankee sensibilities led her to become a leader in the movement."

An arrogant, dickhead, stuck up liberal from New England.
fuckthesouth dot com was made by the typical Yankee I describe above. Southerners are the only true Americans. We're laid back, friendly, and we don't give a shit about politics. And we don't like our hard earned money to be thrown away to crack addicts. The only reason we don't like Yankees, is because their rude. Also, The South is the most visited place in the USA. Not up there in New England. (Louisiana is the 2nd most visited state by tourists, and Florida is 3rd. Look it up sometime.)

A "Yankee" is a noun relating to handjobs or other sexual acts involving a tugging motion on the genitalia; however, it can be altered to create a verb.

A yankee in the noun sense is synonymous with the word handjob. It also could be used to refer to one of gives "yankees" or "handjobs" on a regular basis.
One could use alterations of the word to create a verb, e.g.: "yank," "yanked," or even "yankee'd."
Yeah man, she gave me a nice yankee the other night.
