A video blog: Regional dialect meme

I was name checked in the end of Samantha (aka Marthaamay)'s Regional Dialect Meme video, and so I have made a little video myself, saying some words in my West Yorkshire accent...



Say these words:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

Now answer these questions:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you change the TV channel with?
 
Have a go yourself  :) be sure to link back to me

P.S I have an exciting new feature and giveaway coming up - keep your eyes peeled!

I LOVE this!!! Big smiles! Solina is even getting up and looking about!

So true about smashing windows. Toilet paper on houses seems too soft!

Love from Jimmy Spinneh xx

Ooo your blog is looking lovely. WHY have I not visited in ages? I don't know. If it makes you feel any better, I haven't visited many other places either...

I LOVED your video!

"Toilet paper on houses? The kids round here will just smash your windows. They can't be doing with toilet paper round here." - I cracked up at this! I think my answer would have been similar but round here they smash wing mirrors. It's rare that I laugh out loud when on my own but I couldn't even type properly - that's how much I love it.

You're great!

Would Q.2 be a woodlouse?

Hmm, perhaps I'll do this meme. Need to wash my hair first...
