Yet another regional dialect quiz

Fark pointed to a poorly researched article about how the southern dialect is spreading. Comments then centered around value judgements made based on someone's accent. The discussion went downhill from there.

Regardless, I still have a Philadelphia accent. Which I have decided I am proud of, since many of the questions were centered around whether I pronounced pairs or even triples of words differently. I guess the dialects in the rest of the United States are making do with fewer vowel sounds or phonemes.

What American accent do you have? (Best version so far)

Mid Atlantic

Also known as a "Philadelphia accent" but also heard in south Jersey, Baltimore, and thereabouts.
