My Kind of English

Okay... two posts in one day (yeah, I'm an addict) but it's a slow day at work cause of some issues with antibody shipping so I thought I'd post this cause it's pretty funny. (I actually meant to post this yesterday but forgot to). Not sure how I live in Chicago Suburbia with 0% Midwestern speech - but does the Upper Midwesterner part prove my Minnesotan roots? You betcha!!

I have successfully avoided my Texas roots apparently. Of course, if they had asked anything about "hot dish" versus "casserole", I would have been exposed as a Minnesotan instantly.

HAH!! "20% Upper Midwestern" DOES expose you as a Minnesotan!! You say "sack" instead of "bag" dontcha?? ;) So what kind of slang would expose you as Oregonian??

Although considering it's currently baseball playoff season, I'm proud to be 0% "Yankee."
