... and about this time most Texans are saying:

Yeah, and your point is?

Speaking of Texans:

A Texan with a lot of life experience might say, "I've been around the world three times and to four goat ropin's."

...and then there's this fellow from North Carolina (or maybe South Carolina) who posted a comment about enjoying "the mess" out of his Casita. I can't figure that one out either. How does one compare the word "enjoy" with "mess"?? Man, am I glad I live in Orygone NOT, it's Orygun!!

I always enjoy listening to our new news readers and weather prophets talk about Mexia and Waxahachie.

Here's some more Pittsburgeze...

"I pledge allsegiance to da flag anna United States of America. And to da republic fer which it stands, one nation under Gawd, indivisible, wit liberty and jestice fer alls."

Or Not. Ats da question." – Hamlet

Whos videon the stiller game?


Here you can take a test.........

1. “Quit jaggin around with dat jumbo” implies that:
• Someone is sticking thorns into his food.
• Someone is holding a very big weapon.
• Someone is playing with his food.
2 "Dawn is rilly nebby." means that:
• The sunrise is really nice.
• Don’s reel is very sharp.
• Don is a really nosy fellow.
3. "What yinz doin en at?" translates as:
• What are you two eating today?
• What are the youths doing?
• Tell me everything that you two are doing!
4. What action do you take when you hear: "Get aht, dere’s a fahr in da filled!"
• Laugh and smell the pretty flower.
• Look carefully at the filled sections.
• Leave the field and call 911.
5. "If yinz wants served, raise your hans." translates as:
• If you want service, lift some Germans.
• If the youths want to play tennis, they should raise their hands.
• If you want to be served, raise your hands.

Living in Oregon (Or-E-Gun) we're used to everything being missprounced by travelers. The river running through downtown Portland is the Willamette (Will-ahm-ette, not William-ette).

It's Pop Gina
You think "Willamette" tough? Try SIUSLAW River in Florence
Sigh-oo-slaw
And speaking of different "American" I lived my first 20 years in England, born and raise, as they say. Then then next 20 in Canada (and have Canadian children to prove it) now I'm in the States. I'm sooooooooo confused. When I'm looked at strangely I don't know if it's a "Canadianism" or a "Britspeak" Not to mention all the "I loooooooove you accent"

In Manitoba, a landfill or garbage dump is called The Nuisance Grounds.

(Fun to go there with your dad, poke a dead cow with a stick when he's not looking!)

In Ontario, people pronounce anything not "aneething" but "en-uh-thing."

Pronounce Shubenachide, Lakelse, Gingolx! Better yet, ask your visiting mother-in-law to give it a try!

In New Brunswick Canada.
Everything is a bunch....eg "that bunch of water on the floor".
It's never pass me a knife and fork, its a fork'n'knife.
If the fishing is good they say "caught a whole mess of trout"
They take something out of the freezer not to thaw it out but to "unthaw" it

My father was born in South Dakota and for his family, the capital of South Dakota was always pronounced as Pier---

When we moved to the far north of California, we were quite surprised to find that the locals pronouned the county of Del Norte as Del Nort.

In Baja and in the Northern part of Mexico, auto junk yards are called Yonkes---a take off on yankees---

How do you pronounce the name of the fruit, toe-mah-toe, or toe-may-toe? How about San Ber-nah-dino or San Burn-ar-dino?
Did your grandmother Hoover the carpet? Was everything which had to be kept cold put in the fridge, or frigidaire regardless of the manufacturer, or does your family still call it the icebox?

What are the names for a hot, seasonal wind in different locations around the world; Africa, Canada, So. California (common usage is usually pronounced incorrectly), and elsewhere.

Material used to surface a road is called by different names around the world.
