The Accent Challenge

I'm slightly stealing borrowing this idea from Alex over at Munchkins  and the Military, but I found a different accent test I like better and thought I'd go ahead and do this one instead. I also decided to force the husband to participate as well, because I just know that an argument is going to break out over the way I pronounce crayon, and I'm sure it'll be entertaining for you.  So here we go  with my first ever Vlog.



See. Told ya we'd get into it about the crayon thing. Well that's us. It's shot from a slightly unflattering angle, but I was not about to try to film that with him again. So, you know, Yolo or some shit like that. Anywhoozles, here's the test:

Where you’re from.

Pronounce the following words: Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Crayon, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, GIF, Crackerjack, Doorknob, Envelope

What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is a bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

If you decide to do it please link back! I'd love to see what ya'll sound like.

  2. Sorry, but my favorite was the Russian accent. I went through a four month period, for reasons unknown, where me and my best friend only spoke in Russian accents. They got so good that we would at times forget we were doing them and people would ask us how long we had been in the States for. And I say almost everything the way you guys do. With the exception of caramel and envelope. Oh! And crayon. Sorry, I say it like your dude :(
