Yeah i've got a somewhat philly accent. I say dog like 'dawugh', car like 'cawr', and talk like 'tawlk'. I'm not real bad though some people say um like 'eaum' and God like 'Gawd'. So I guess it'* the w'* that get over pronounced.

It'* those damn Boston people. It has to be all the seafood they eat because they speak funny, have a universal (and very true) inferiority complex when it comes to thier superior cousins in New York, drive like pansies, and attract baseball GMs that where gorilla suits.

i can pick people from up north out instantly. Another great tactic is ask if you like sweet tea....that rules out a lot of northern people down here.

i have a "country" accent.
