Bahahahaha! I LOVE this! I grew up in the Midwest, moved to jersey at 18. I get made fun of for drinking pop, wearing tennis shoes, the way I say crayon. This list makes me feel vindicated!!!!!

The one they left out for a group of people is one we hated with a passion in eastern PA...."youse" or "youse guys" (pronounced like use). Helloooooooo, YOU is not plural. It can be you guys, y'all or all y'all, but not youse. It just sounds ignorant.

My mil said they said pecan as "pee-can" once in SC or NC and was told a pee can goes under the bed. I was surprised that SC & NC had that as their way of saying it.

Pretty accurate.  We southerners do call all soft drinks Coke - an orange coke, grape coke, etc.

Seems like we Zonies are pretty middle-of-the-road on some things. :)

Great link and I've bookmarked it to share with others.

I was going to ask someone what you'd call orange pop. So gingerale or 7-up would be white soda?

I laughed at it. If you go all the way to the end, there's a lot more questions in a drop down and it breaks it in your city if you choose.
