Just so you know, people don't talk like that in Tallahassee. It seems every time I see characters in TV or movies that are from Tallahassee they talk like a redneck and I find it quite irritating. We have some small towns like Wakulla and Havanna outside of Tallahassee that are pretty redneck, but Tallahassee itself is quite "normal" and I wouldn't call it Southern at all.

Ok, I feel better. Glad I got that off my chest. :-)

I have relatives in Kentucky and that is where you hear stuff like this (and its not an exaggeration). Texans have a strong accent, but nothing like people in Kentucky. :-*
