HMPH - Accent Quiz...

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: Philadelphia
 

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard.

I tend to disagree with this because I think of Philly accents as being 2 medium steps away from something slightly Bostonian... I could be wrong of course. But I answered everything accurately and this time (unlike usually with these quizzes in my experience) there was not a single question where a certain answer wasn't the obvious correct one. Guess I'm going to have to go to Philadelphia and yack with some people and see if they can tell I've only been there twice and in fact did not grow up a stone's throw from Independence Hall.
