Considering I'm from the South, I don't think this is accurate.

Re: What kind of American English do you speak?

I think the quiz is very interesting. I had never thought about some of those regional differences.

Well, my general northerness came through, lol.

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

It is your turn to help - The "Save A Muppet Foundation" needs you!
