I chose this Pittsburgh Dad one because I will be making a sojourn to IKEA this weekend–for my new hause n’at. I don’t need a cauch, but I will prolly get some meatbawls. And I want the giant print of the Pixburgh skyline to hang behind my cauch and pretend I’m doin the news wit Sally Wiggin.

That video made me laugh so hard.

I really want a hoagie right now.

    LOL! I’ve never heard a Pittsburgh accent before. It’s bad, but I still say Boston is worse. But then again, I’m from the Midwest and I’ve got nothing to brag about in term of accent. I’ve noticed that I never pronounce the “g” in “ing” words and pen and pin are the exact same word.

    The Pittsburgh accent is a new one to me, but I’m from east Texas so compared to what I usually hear, it sounds very refined!

    I’ve heard much, much worse-but I’m from Chicago where we say thing like, “I only bake with real budder.” Budder from the Soutside.
    Yeah, the Pittsburgh accent is sounding better as I type.

    Having had long exposure to both Pittsburgh and Boston accents, I feel qualified to weigh in on this issue.

    Clearly the participants in this survey have never heard a full on North Shore of Massachusetts accent coming out of a kid, because that’s the worst. (Sorry, anyone from Nahant or Peabody who reads this)

    Yinz forever, frappes* never.

    *frappes: what people in Boston call a milkshake. A milkshake is something different.
