you also are from ohio if you say 'please' instead of "i beg your pardon"

Ironically, there is a political commercial that is running with this in it right now. I couldn't help but chuckle...:)

I just heard another one yesterday that I've never heard before.

Do you brush your teeth, or wash them????

The nurse that told me this one, said washing your teeth is more of New York, New England type term.

Anyone else heard this one???

I guess in in Ohio it would be WARSH anyhow!!

When my wife and I went to New England a couple of years ago

(LOVED IT!!!!! by the way, want to move there, anyone want us??)

All my life in Ohio, I thought it was chowd-ER and lobst-ER and come to find out it's chow-DA and lobst-A!

Live and learn I guess!!! Mike

I lived in Akron all my life but started working in Cleveland a couple days a month. Why does everyone else call them "tree-lawns" up here when we call them "devil-strips" in acorn? I also have another question, with all the other warm places on the planet, how did Sea World ever get to NE Ohio? I understand the company having parks in Florida and Cali but at a place that is only open 5 months out of the year?!? Maybe thats why it closes. MISS YOU SHAMU!

Haven't seen a Krogers up here in years (Nor an A&P and all the Sparkle Markets have closed down. ) but I still love my ACME. I also love Swenson's Gallyboys with a large Californian.

When you're driving on the interstate in another state and other drivers are treating you like you have "student driver" plastered on your car.

Hello fellow Ohioians, and language destroyers out there!!

Sorry, I have not contributed to this thread for a while, but I heard someone talking the other day, and made me wonder.

We may have already covered this....but....when did the english language add a T at the end of the word,,twice????

I overheard someone talking, and I swear,,,she did it several times!!!

Along the same lines, again, I think this has been addressed, but when was an R added to wash,,,,as in "mom just hung out the warsh", or "I can't wait to visit the White House when I go to Warshington DC this summer."

The english language is tough enough, but when you add in local twists, man, I pitty anyone trying to learn it. Case in point, take the word "bow". It means bow, as in bow and arrow, the front of a ship, a boyfriend, a ribbon on a package, or to bend over like at the end of a performance. How many did I miss?? And I'm sure there are dozens of additional examples.

Big L....I feel your pain about Sea World. We live in Cambridge, a couple of hours south. When our girls were little, Sea World was an annual trek for us. Many times, we would stay a night or two at a nearby motel, so that we could be there early, and stay late for the fireworks and the special evening shows. Many, many great memories there. I agree,,,a sea based park in Ohio???!!! But, boy, do I miss it!!!

Mike

This has nothing to do with "local twists". Bow means bow as in bow and arrow, the front of a ****, a ribbon on a package, or to bend over at the end of a performance according to the English language universally. "Beau" means "a boyfriend" universally......in French, but English-speakers sometimes say that as well.
