8. It says I have a Philadelphia accent
Edited on Tue Dec-18-07 12:23 PM by Reverend_Smitty
which makes total sense because I grew up in Central Jersey...all youse guys everywhere else talk funny! now excuse me while I drink my caw-fee :P

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.
