Being a puh-son wit a tick New Yawk accent even aftah awl dese yeahs of being not in New Yawk

I love listening to dat New Yawk city Jew tawk. I grab my cawfee and pet my dawg and smile as a fellow landsman says duh tings I believe in.

Dis New Yawk Jew supports dat New Yawk Jew! And dat's yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge!!!

In all seriousness, it's refreshing to hear the accent against. Go Bernie, Go!

1. Regional accents seem to be disappearing - one more way we're

homogenizing. Phooey.

I love the Noo Yawk accent - I get to hear it daily -although I have never ever heard any one say "toity toid and toid"; and once someone told me I sounded like I came from Iowa. (I"ve never even been there.)

2. It's a great combination of honest, yet sharp and down-to-business

He never sounds insincere. Or overly calculating. Or patronizing. Or like he wants to waste your time rambling on about a bunch of nothing, trying to sound smart without actually saying something.

Basically the opposite of certain others.

3. A lot better than pulling out a fake Southern Drawl when on location

God I hate that kind of crap. Like running around in an old pickup truck used only once every 4 years, or cutting brush on the pig farm....
