Mike North has a Chicago accent, everyone knows that. Hell, even Chicagoans make comments about it.

Men from the Mid Atlantic states MD and parts south come across as sounding very weak and frail to me. It's almost like they don't speak from their diaphragm.

Southerners don't have weird accents. Just ask Paula Deen.

I think the Maine accent sounds pretty funny. Some people in Maine have a heavy accent. They don't talk normal like the people in Texas do.

The New England accent is the weirdest to me, the Peter/Lois Griffin type accent.

The Southern accent doesn't bother me I just hate when they say word like oil (all) and boil (ball).

I like when people from North Dakota say Fargo for some reason.
