My friend Niki had this newfangled meme that deals with one of my favorite topics: accents! (Hear her if you want. She's southern, too!) Actually it's "accents and regional names for things." Apparently "you read off some words and then answer questions about what you call things." Seems easy enough. I decided to copy Niki and not show my face. Instead you will see my faceless figurines as you hear my very-cute voice.
So this is the meme in its written form:
If you want to follow along or do the Accent Vlog yourself, here are the words/questions:
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.
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 change the TV channel with?
Did anything I say surprise you? Sure do hope you could understand me. :)
Let me know if you do this meme so I can hear how you talk and what you call things! Fun stuff, yes?
