The Cult of Lincoln

Friday, May 23, 2008



Some of you may have heard that PBS is revamping their much-beloved series, "The Electric Company." It turns out they were filming a scene in the basketball court next to my apartment as I was walking to work this morning!

No, I didn't see the Blue Beetle. :D

What American accent do you have?
Created by Xavier on Memegen.net

Western. Like Midland, Western is another accent that people consider neutral. So, you might not actually be from the Western half of the country, but you definitely sound like it.

And if you're not from the West, you are probably one of the following:
(a) A Pittsburgher - the quiz can't tell the difference;
(b) Someone from Canada (probably southern Ontario) who doesn't have a Canadian accent;
(c) Someone from northern New England who doesn't have a New England accent; or
(d) Someone from Texas or the Heartland who was born after 1980.
You are definitely not from New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Detroit, the Deep South, etc.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!

Neutral. Not Northern, Southern, or Western, just American. Your national American identity is more important to you than your local identity, because you don't really have a local identity to begin with.

Yeah, not too shocking.
 
okay but what's the difference between western and nuetral then? I got western too.
