Word Geek Meme

Couldn’t resist this one…but now I’m sad – apparently I’m more Yankee than Texan in the way I talk. That sucks. But they also didn’t ask about how you say “pecan pie” or “cement.”

  1. It always drove me nuts that the British pronounce “pecan” like “peeking” without the g– “peekin’,” emphasis on the first syllable. Who on earth says it like that? That’s worse than how Yanks say it.

  2. Hahahahahaha! That’s freakin’ hysterical.

  3. I want my own region dammit! At the very least a nod to the west coast.
