Being a puh-son wit a tick New Yawk accent even aftah awl dese yeahs of being not in New Yawk

I love listening to dat New Yawk city Jew tawk. I grab my cawfee and pet my dawg and smile as a fellow landsman says duh tings I believe in.

Dis New Yawk Jew supports dat New Yawk Jew! And dat's yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge!!!

In all seriousness, it's refreshing to hear the accent against. Go Bernie, Go!

homogenizing. Phooey.

I love the Noo Yawk accent - I get to hear it daily -although I have never ever heard any one say "toity toid and toid"; and once someone told me I sounded like I came from Iowa. (I"ve never even been there.)

He never sounds insincere. Or overly calculating. Or patronizing. Or like he wants to waste your time rambling on about a bunch of nothing, trying to sound smart without actually saying something.

Basically the opposite of certain others.

God I hate that kind of crap. Like running around in an old pickup truck used only once every 4 years, or cutting brush on the pig farm....
