Ni Jiang Hua Hao Qi Guai!*

* Your speech is weird!

I get this, oh, about once a week at least. The next question that always follows is: "Ni shi na li ren?" Where are you from?

I think I should just xerox this and print it out on cards for them:

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Northeast

Judging by how you talk you are probably from north Jersey, New York City, Connecticut or Rhode Island. Chances are, if you are from New York City (and not those other places) people would probably be able to tell if they actually heard you speak.

As someone from CT, I am a little confused to find I am apparently from the inland North.

Your Result: The Inland North (85%)

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

I do not call soda "pop".
