How do you say that in Alabama? (vlog)

Against my better judgment, I decided to join the VLOG MEME “How do you Say that?” this week. Basically a bunch of bloggers get together and all pronounce the same words so we can hear what it sounds like in their accent. I have a feeling mine will be on the top of the most embarrassing.

If you want to play, the words and questions are:

Pillow, Exhausted, Governor, Entrepreneurial, Calm, Milwaukee Wisconsin, Bagel, ambulance, aqua, femoral, address, rural, hypocrisy

What do you call a store where you buy alcohol?
What do you call it when you blow on a baby’s tummy and make them laugh?
What do you call batting your eyelashes on someone’s cheek?
What is another way of saying, “to deceive,” or “swindle?”
What is a funny way to say someone is not smart? (one fry short of a happy meal?)
Another name for butt?
What do you call it when you drive through mud. Lots of it, often fast and pray you don’t get stuck?

(update: i was hosting this on my blog but it overloaded the server so i had to move it to youtube..sorry for the quality)



If you want to play along, feel free to put your link in my comments. I don’t have a linky up because I have had some incompatibility issues with my “Mr Linky” and my facebook API. The links may go into moderation but I will pull them out next time I sign in.


  1. You’re right! Mudding is pretty stupid :) I’ve went along a few times and it’s just big boys playing around like little boys.

  2. Glad I was not the only one who messed up on that word lol. I never say it and it is hard as all get out to pronounce.

    Bless you’re heart darlin… I’m a Kansas girl who ended up in Foley Alabama for 10 years. I’m some kind of mix now, my family makes fun of me because I have “empathetic accents”. I take on the accent of whomever I’m around. I really don’t try & I don’t want anybody to ever think I am making fun of them, but I do it every time!! Southern Alabamian, Mexican, Russian, Minnesotian, Michiganian…..doesn’t matter. What a hot mess!

  4. I love your cute southern accent Trisha! Yeah, I totally chose some hard words to say this go around. Next time should be a heck of a lot easier.

    I loved your answer to the last one- stupid! Yeah, it really is.

  5. Well I don’t feel so bad now because I couldn’t pronounce that etrepr… word either. I can say this, the next time Jon makes fun of me for sounding country I’m just gonna refer him to this video for comparison, there’s nothing southern or country about my accent in comparison to yours. 😉

  6. LOL stupid! I agree – driving through the mud is just….dumb? Nothing personal to those who actually have a name for this event :)

    I’m glad you joined in this – you do have quite an accent!

    I will be recording mine a little later…

  7. Brandi @ Flip FLop Mama says:

    LOL you’re too funny!

  8. BAHAHAHA! Ok, I will do this one since you did ! LOL You are so funny…. “STUPID” is perfect! hahaha

  9. Ha! It’s very hard NOT to pick up the accent in these southern states. I’m glad you joined!

  10. They’re going to kick you out of Alabama for saying mudding is stupid! 😉
