Real News. Real Funny.
dickfreckle: Making fun of the South is as popular as mocking any other scapegoat if it means avoiding the stupidity in your own community.
optikeye: Aversion to a long Island or Jersey accent is established after having a clue.
HotWingAgenda: And the uneducated people from that area go out of their way to thicken the accent.
Makh: Living outside the city in Georgia didn't help that stereotype. Also we need more people like Bill Hicks if you want to turn it around./I also think tha bahston accent is frikken tapped in the head.
Lionel Mandrake: I know you couldn't read the article, so this is just FYI: negative stereotypes associated with southern accents are just as common among southerners as northerners in people aged ten or higher, although young southern kids (5 or 6) are not judgmental when it comes to accent, but northern kids are.So, it's really saying that at some point, Americans from all over develop a bias against southern accents as they get older, not just the people who don't live there.
L.D. Ablo: My ex-fiancee had a touch of a southern accent. I found it hot. Plus she looked like a cross between Reese Witherspoon and a young Cybil Shepard. She has a MSW and is pretty smart.I lived with her for a bit in Missouri. Then she turned into a violent drunk. Still, I wish it would have worked out./would date another Southerner//though one that did not throw plates at my head
Apos: Here comes the science, y'allI couldn't help but read this in Paula Deen's voice.
FirstNationalBastard: Apos: Here comes the science, y'allI couldn't help but read this in Paula Deen's voice.She's ruined the word "Y'all" for everyone....at least, until a sextape is leaked where she's seen lubing up her anus with a stick of butter, bending over, holding her ass cheeks apart, and saying "Come on in Y'all". That will redeem the word.
