The Accent Game: VLOG

Came across this fun idea, the accent game. Everyone always says people in the Midwest have "no accent" and we are the people hired to do the prompts on automated phones, etc. However, I'd like to point out the fact that Wisconsin and Minnesota are in the Midwest and those people have CRAZY accents!! LOL.

Here's my Ohio non-accent. ;)

P.S. I do "worsh" the clothes but "Wash"ington DC is our nation's capital! :)

-------

Here are the words and questions:

Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

And answer these questions:
•What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
•What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
•What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
•What do you call gym shoes?
•What do you say to address a group of people?
•What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
•What do you call your grandparents?
•What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
•What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
•What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

Haha, it's funny because I'm from the midwest but curl bug, warsh,pecans are definitely not in my vocab like you.

Oh and by the way, you are so freaking adorable!

Awesome idea...I'm definitely stealing it. We'll see if a Wisconsin "accent" is that different from Ohio!!! (I'm from southern Wisconsin, which is a big difference from the northern part of the state.)

P.S. My father-in-law says "worsh!!" Ha ha ha!!

When it's raining and the sun is shining, the devil is beating his wife!

haha, I love you did this! I told Kirby how I'd love to do it and he doesn't think it'll be much fun since we don't really have an accent. However, people who aren't from the north think we kinda do. Anyway... it was nice to hear a familiar Ohio accent! :)

I'm from Chicago, living in NW Indiana now, basically the same region...most things are the same, but instead of "pill bug" we call them "Rolly Pollys"...another good ones is how you pronounce "Roof" most people in the US say the "oo" like the "oo" in pool...some of us (the special ones ;) say the "oo" like the "u" in Ruffle. Yeah-even the same region has different accents. I have a small Chicago accent, but my step brother has it realllllly strong. Hilarious!

So you have some buggy female relatives?!! We also drink pop, but I find more and more folks that drink soda, I find that they are California imports. My accent comes in my spelling. Like the silent "l" I put in stove.
