Regional Dialect Meme Video!




So I saw this idea over here and thought it would be fun to give it a go! I have been thinking for some time that a little video would be a cute idea and I always find it interesting to hear what people sound like! 

Recently I had a watch of a couple of my Tea and Crayons pals interviews over on Amelia's magazine on the launch of her new fashion illustration book. Even though I talk to these girls loads via email, twitter and skype chat I had never heard them talk! I was so impressed with how put together and concise they were, I know that I have the voice of a child and ummm and ahhh all over the place!


Anyways I thought I would do this little Regional Dialect Meme *just for fun*. This is how it works:



Say these words:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

Now answer these questions:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

If you decide to give it a go over on your blog then please leave a link below. I would love to see what you all sound like too! :) xoxo
