This proves I don't have a Southern accent

The southern town I grew up in is so small we actually have a town song that we would get together and sing every year (you think I'm kidding?! - It starts off "Ashland, Ashland, center of the universe. Ashland, VA my hometown." - you just can't make that stuff up.) Now that I live in the "big city" I've had to work hard to get rid of my accent. And as this quiz proves - I have! Granted I still throw in an occasional "ya'll" and "sugar" just to throw people off.

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

Midland

("Midland" is not necessarily the same thing as "Midwest") The default, lowest-common-denominator American accent that newscasters try to imitate.  Since it's a neutral accent, just because you have a Midland accent doesn't mean you're from the Midland.

This got me thinking. When I read blogs, I assume everyone talks just like I do. I read in my own voice - but chances are there are some funky accents out there. What if all bloggers added a "welcome to my blog" podcast on their side bar (please don't have it play every time I visit your blog - that's just downright annoying). That way, I could play it and imagine your voice while I'm reading instead of my own.
