Accents …

 Phillyspeak. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Some years ago, when my wife and I were in Chicago, someone commented on her Philadelphia accent. Which was odd, because she started her life in New Jersey, and then her family moved to Norristown, and from there to Bluebell. The same fellow wondered where I was from. I guess the nuns of the Society of the Sacred Heart gave me a different accent. Certainly none of them spoke Philly.
