You Can’t Take the Philly Outta the Girl

I’m generally skeptical about those ubiquitous Internet quizzes. You know the ones. You answer a bunch of half-assed questions, and you find out what character from Lost or which snack food you are.

So I almost ignored the Pharyngula post about a quiz that claims to tell you which regional American accent you have. Lo and behold, they pegged me as a Philadelphian. I didn’t even have to go back and fudge any answers either.

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: Philadelphia


Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you’re not from Philadelphia, then you’re from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you’ve ever journeyed to some far off place where people don’t know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn’t have a clue what accent it was they heard.

    Yo Omni! You want that cheesesteak with, o what? Can’t wait to see if my Ohio peeks through my South Jersey.
