Also no one outside the Philly area really knows what scrapple is.

I had buddy from northern Virginia one time say "Isn't a hoagie basically like a pierogi?" I always thought that was funny.

ah scrapple. I grew up in North/Central Jersey but my mom's side of the family is from Philly. Lots of fond memories of eating scrapple with my grandparents.

Scrapple is known in the Baltimore area. I don't like it personally, but my grandfather eats it.

When I went to philly for work, someone suggested I try scrapple at a diner we were at. It....was interesting... can't say I liked it, but I also didn't dislike it. It was an odd experience.

Default boredatwork

Who doesnt say "yall" outside of the south. Even New Yorkers say yall.

DC is too easy from the use of local slang. But we also use national slang, I know in DC area"whoadie" and "Wazam" is used as a cognitive reference to NO. Baltimore also says "Whoa" i guess short for wharday. We also say "knolmtalmbout" real fast as a reference to Houston. I know I say "whats the bizness" everytime I answer the phone like Memphis.

Easy to tell if someone is from the DC area of they call you "Bob, young, or Moe.

Really? I'm from the Northeast and never knew anyone that said this. This would annoy me greatly. I would move across the country.

I always thought that was Country/Southern thing.

Pointing to your hometown on your right hand is a sign that you're from Michigan.
