Who knew I had a Philadelphia accent? What does it say about me and my internalized oppression that I was quite happy I didn't "turn out to be 'Southern'"?

Okay I took it but this quiz is just WRONG. First of all, why not ask if I pronounce "Merry" and "marry" the same (I do) instead of whether I pronounce "Mary" and "Merry" the same (I don't)? And what about southernisms such as "cain't" (which rhymes with haint and is used in sentences such as "Cain't never could do anything")?

I grew up in SC, so how could this be: "Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak!." No no no no no. No dang way. Uh huh.

So what DO you pronounce differently? Inquiring minds want to know?!
