My American accent

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

Given that I grew up in and around Chicago, this is pretty accurate. My girlfriend in college, who was from southern Indiana, thought it was funny when I got mad because my "northern" accent would come out.

I could have sworn that I've posted this (or a similar quiz before), so I didn't initially when I saw it on a couple of friends' blogs. But a quick look didn't turn it up and I'm too lazy to search all 800+ posts.

I feel all weirded out now, because it said I talked like I was from Philadelphia...Um, well, New York is kind of close to Pennsylvania, right??
