Dan, the Philly accent is one of the strongest accents I've ever heard in all my life. NY'ers have thick accents too, of course, at least some of them do, but, it's not like Philly has no accent...

Well, it flattens out when needed. But, if I talk quickly, or am back home, it gets thicker. I don't care, I like my accent, I like having people know where I hail from....and if they discount me due to that accent upon first meeting me, all the better.

Because the game is inherently funny. It's fucking mayhem. I want to play again, we hardly did anything.

Oh, I love having my accent too. I'm extremely proud of it and refer to it every chance I can, if you haven't noticed.

My accent has gotten stronger as I've gotten older for some reason. I suddenly have begun switching back and forth between "you guys" and "yous guys," which I had never done before.

You see, I've always considered non-rhotic accents thicker than rhotic accents by default.

I never say "yous guys", but definitely say "tawk" and call a drawer a "draw". Houston used to be "Youston" but I had to fix that for professional reasons.

My family occasionally makes fun of my father and I for not being able to pronounce certain words correctly that they can. I forget what the examples were, there was some word I couldn't get right, and had never noticed before.

My most blatant Phillyspeak thing is my punctuation of sentences with "you know."

Hah yeah, I may have exaggerated a wee bit.

But it was what I was feeling at the moment as I was listening to the song, so I typed it. Now I can't take it back.
