Two Good Ole Boy Boss Hog type guys. my vote goes to neither. Not modern or sexy enough. Not interesting, its the best Good Ole Georgia has to offer though.

We need federally mandated speech classes here.
I suggest earplugs.

Well, black people caught heck for years for not speaking "proper english". There is the "gullah geechee" dialect, which is prevalent among the sea islands of Georgia & South Carolina.

Also, let us not forget the infamous "ebonics" episode where in 1996 a school district in California tried to recognize a popular sub-dialect of the English language as a language in of itself.

But I guess you would know all of that now, wouldn't you?

Folks, a very high percentage of your fellow Georgians have heavy Southern accents. Even many of us in Atlanta. It's not an indicator of unintelligence or lack of sophistication or being unsuccessful. Being from deep south Georgia and having a marked Southern accent, I speak (drawl?) from experience. So, please criticize content and not delivery.
