Sess Loses His Dignity

My accent!

Here's my accent quiz results stolen from quirkyslayer.
What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central

"North Central" is what professional linguists call the Minnesota accent. If you saw "Fargo" you probably didn't think the characters sounded very out of the ordinary. Outsiders probably mistake you for a Canadian a lot.

I don't buy it. If I actually TALKED the way they do in Fargo (by the way, i do know a few, but most of us in Minnesota think it's a ridiculously over done accent in the movie), I'd have to say things like "Oh yah, it'd be a cold one today, don't y' know?" or  "Sure be mighty nippy about here, eh?" And we don't say EH! Seriously. Funny none the less. And we may talk about the weather, but I think we'd laugh that person out of the room if they ever said anything that goofy.

Sooo what's your accent guys? I'm home early from work and curious. . .
