A Quiz on Accents

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: North Central

Well really it does make sense - I am a Canadian after all. More to the point I'm a western Canadian, so a North Central accent makes sense. Going into the States we most frequently use the port of entry in North Dakota (and I actually have been to Fargo, not to mention Moorehead which is across the Red River). What I normally don't get is the supposed Canadian accent which has us all sounding like counterfeit Scotsmen - oot and aboot indeed.
