My Southern Accent Vlog

So, being that my blog title is what it is, thought it would be fun to share my southern accent in this fun little activity going around! I was watching a couple last night while laying in the bed and decided to whip my phone out and do one myself - so be prepared, I'm lookin rough - but it's the real me, you see!

Here's what you're supposed to do:

Say these words:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

And answer these questions:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you use to change the TV channel?

So, do I sound like a hick or what? Ha ha! I'll be linking this up with other accent blogs over at Jenna's Journey, so go there and see all the other fun videos everyone's doing and hear how we all talk!!

  1. You're brave! I'm from NY and live in Charlotte now but would never attempt this - so funny!!! Good for you :-)

  2. If I can figure out how to post to my blog I might just try this. Would Love to hear myself and my south Louisiana accent! Definitely a coke!! And a grocery store!

  3. Well, we're definitely from the same place except my grandparents are Granny and Papa. :)

  4. Aw, I love this - you sound just like how I'd imagined, and I hope that sounds less stalker-y than it looks. I love how "theater" has 3 syllables in your neck of the woods!

  5. your accent is adorable! i want to do this!

  6. You would fit right in with all of us down here in S Georgia...perfect accent!!

  7. You know I've had to buy a southern dictionary to carry on a conversation with you and Walker :)

  8. I love that you did this in a come-as-you-are mode. Makes me really like you a lot.

  9. Love it! Your accent was more pronounced than usual, probably due to the late night. I have ALWAYS thought you had the best accent every though!

  10. Love this, but we all know that Aunt is a 2 sullable word.


I love to hear what you all think! Thanks for visiting and let me know you were here!
