Who Says "Crayon" like "Crown"?

Last week, I stumbled upon this seemingly off-topic article on Starcasm (the one and only source for MY celebrity gossip!), and thought these colorful maps were so interesting, I had to come share.

I have a thing for accents, like I seriously wish I was Southern, because I think the accents are so darn cute.  Alas, I am not, and though I do say y'all every once in a while and I pronounce my "a"s a little off, I really don't think I've got an accent.

Coke is a type of soda.  If you want another type, you can't just go around calling them all Coke!

I say pa-jam-ahs

This one made me laugh out loud.  Who the hell calls a crayon a crown?!

If someone told me to put my mouth near a "bubbler", I would not be on board.
Where does your dialect fall on these maps?
There are tons more of these over at Starcasm!

HAHA I've heard a few people pronounce "crayon" as "crown" and it irks me so much! One I didn't see (maybe it's in the actual article?) is a "buggy" or a "cart." You know, the thing you push at the grocery store. Here in southeastern KY we call it a buggy and I've heard of people thinking that's weird! I definitely have a southern accent, though. The biggest thing is the pronunciation of "i." Like, instead of pronouncing "right" as "ra-eet"- you know, actually pronouncing the "i" like you are supposed to- we do it more like "rah-uht." That's the only way I can think of to spell it! LOL. It's just drawn out, I guess. I get made fun of for that all the time!

Well... even though I don't have much of a southern accent, apparently it's a little more prominent than I thought.

and I definitely call them "crowns" ha. woops. I think it starts off as "cray-ons" but then I start talking fast and it comes out as "crown"

My roomie during my freshman year of college was from around Milwaukee, WI and she always called the drinking fountain a "bubbler". I still don't get it.

BAHAHAHAHAHA, I'm dying with these... We definitely just say "pop" up here. And much like you, I aspire to have a southern accent... So, I pretend I do... ;)
