The Boys in BC

Accent Meme

 So, this has been going around, and I thought I'd jump in for fun...

This is the list of stuff I was supposed to say in the audio:

Your name and/or username
Where you're from
The following words: Aunt, Roof, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin,
Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting Image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught, Orange, Coffee, direction, naturally, aluminium and herbs
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
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?

Please call Stella. Ask her to bring these things with her from the store: Six spoons of fresh snow peas, five thick slabs of blue cheese, and maybe a snack for her brother Bob. We also need a small plastic snake and a big toy frog for the kids. She can scoop these things into three red bags, and we will go meet her Wednesday at the train station.

If you do one too, let me know, I like accents. I think my accent is your fairly standard general Canadian one...boring! 

Oh, and another note about "addressing a group of people" - if it were a question or in a different context than a greeting, I would probably say "you guys" - such as, "Are you guys going to the party on Friday?" or "I told you guys not to eat that!"  (In S5 there's a point where Jared says "y'all guys" and it's my opinion that this is some weird hybrid between Texan and Canadian :-P)
