It's Everyone Else Who Sounds Funny ...

I have a stellar Midwestern accent, by which we Midwesterners mean, "We don't have accents." It's the people in the rest of the country who talk funny, not us. News anchors strive to sound Midwestern. But not like "Superfans" Midwestern. (I refer to Chicago's football team as "the Bears," not "da Bears." Chicago, for that matter, is not "Shuh-kah-goh." And I live here, not "dere.")

But this quiz was quirky and fun. And accurate based on very few questions. And yes, I refer to sweetened carbonated beverages as "pop." And at the store, my groceries go into a bag, not a sack.

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."
