Dialect Vlogging

Have you seen the dialect vlogs popping up around the blogosphere lately? Essentially, there’s a list of words to read and a set of questions to answer out loud, and the fun part is seeing how we say things differently than you say them. Easy, peasy, right?

Heh. Well if I was going to get suckered into doing this—okay, it actually looked like fun, so nobody had to twist my arm—I wasn’t going at it alone. I basically voluntold my husband that he would participate with me. I sincerely apologize for the lack of seriousness he takes with this challenge. I’m also sorry that I didn’t shower this morning and attempt to do something with my hair/face/entire look.

I’ll stop blabbing (figuratively) and let you listen (literally) to what we sound like. By the way, this is the first time I’ve ever done a vlog and whoa boy…it’s a whole other ball game when my face and voice is on the screen!

  • 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?

I really hope you enjoyed that, because I keep laughing every time I watch it. Do you pronounce anything different? Create your own vlog and let me know! And in the mean time, here are a few blog friends participating (let me know if you did it so I can link you!)

  1. HAHAHAH…wait….TV BOX?? What the heck is that, Jess?? lol

    Josh thought your husband was hilarious (as did I) and will probably call a buggy a racecar from now on. 😀 Loved this!!

  2. Too cute… I have way to messed up a dialect to try this one! People always say it's "so unique"… I know they mean jacked up.

    I love your laugh though 🙂

  3. I'm from Indiana and my husband grew up in North Carolina…we say nearly everything on here differently. The ones that we say the same? We learned from the other one. 🙂

    Too funny! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I did this thing too! But you guys are too cute. Your hubby cracks me up, and you're both so awesome with each other :)) Love.

  5. LOL! You guys are hilarious. And your remote is really cool. Now, I'm going to go grab a can of Diet Pop Light…

  6. You say "Coke" and "y'all", but you don't say "buggy" yet?! Obviously you need to spend another year in GA!

  7. You two were so cute in this! And TV Box? You make me laugh. So glad you did this, you have such a cute voice and your husband is super funny.

  8. 🙂 So funny, as soon as I read the question about rain while the sun was shining, I said outlould 'home, because it' always does that…', and literally finished right as you said it! I'm glad I've got another New Mexico friend who understands! 🙂

  9. HAHAHA! What do you call it when you throw toilet paper on a house? "Rude…" That made me literally laugh out loud! You guys are too cute.

  10. This is great! You two are adorable & your hubby made me laugh out loud a couple of times!
    But a tv box is an odd name!

  11. OMG Kenny is hilarious! "Rude!" and Lawyers you have to say right so they don't sue you… oh and what do you call a person who skipped two questions? Thanks for making me laugh! You guys are adorable!

    And TV Box? REALLY!?

  12. You two are so cute!

    This is such a fun idea! I totally want to do it too. I need to convince my hubs to join me and I'm sure Lil Mootz would be happy to jump in 🙂

    I was totally a lame kid too 🙂

  13. LMFAO!!!! I freaking love Kenny! I'm glad he didn't take it seriously…although you seemed a bit annoyed. LOL! Great job. Too cute!
