Nor Drawl Nor Twang

OK, today's dumb quiz for the day. What American Accent do you Have?

Here are my results:

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

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

Which is pretty much accurate. I'm Southern born and raised (North Carolina on my mother's side, Georgia on my dad's), but I don't sound like the stereotypical southerner. Just traces here and there, really - nothing most people would be able to pick up on. Which is how everyone in the US sounds these days, really.

But alright - it's a pretty dumb quiz. There were about 13 questions, all of which cut straight to obvious stereotypes. You can just as easily "diagnose" yourself in half the time.
