Yeah, there was something similar that came out before, but Sissy found another one... one that I think Bou had a hand in. (She's convinced that I've got an accent, and if you've ever heard me talk, you know that's a crock.) Anyway, here's the results of my "test:"

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The Midland
The Northeast
The South
The West
North Central
What American accent do you have?

I am ROFLMAO! They so have you frickin' PEGGED! As I said at Sissy's I did NOT make this test up and I can't help it if you talk funny! LOL!

OK. First. You think you don't have an accent and this test said,"You may think you speak Standard English right out of the dictionary" and I thought, "Oh! He does! He does!"

And then that part about people will ask, "Are you from Wisconsin?" I wanted to add that sometimes I think it sounds Minnesota.

And of course I am teasing as I love the various American accents... even if I don't have one. ;-) (That's what happens when you grow up a military brat. People have asked me if I'm from frickin' England.) I think its cool to figure out where people come from and if you listen close enough, you can almost detect where their ancestory was from... as in which country. Very cool.

What accent are they talking about?? I have NEVER heard you speak with an accent, so the rest of them must be nuts.

Now excuse me while I go grab a pop.

Accented. Heavily accented you are. I'm the one with the stealth accent.
