wanna whip some shitties while the devil beats his wife?

at long last, the results of the dialect survey i was talking about back in october have been posted. let’s go over some of the more interesting responses, shall we?

  • the idiots who call “hosey” or “high hosey” when laying claim to the front seat of the car (0.44% of respondents) all seem to be centred around new england. “i call high hosey on that chowdah!”
  • 2% of respondents say “expecially” rather than “especially”. reminds me of a woman i work with… (too bad “sectember” wasn’t on the dialect survey).
  • thankfully, half of respondents had never heard of a drive through liquor store. not the smartest of ideas.
  • whipping shitties” isn’t catching on nearly as fast as i’d like as a replacement for “doing donuts”.
  • oddly, more than half the people in the survey had no term for sun showers. i’m still enamoured with “the devil is beating his wife”, personally.
  • 0.13% of respondents say “kitty wampus” when referring to something diagonally across a street from them. uhhh….

in conclusion, i’m the only one who knows how to speak properly.

    it surprises me that more people didn’t vote for the stupid ones, because they’re funnier.
