The Karlo dialect

I took the quiz What Kind of American English Do You Speak? (courtesy of Cut to the Chase) and these are the results. It was pretty accurate actually. I'm originally from the left coast which, in addition to having many Californians, seems to have quite a few second generation people from the South. But why did I get 0% Midwestern?

Your Linguistic Profile:

75% General American English

15% Upper Midwestern

5% Dixie

0% Midwestern

0% Yankee

Gee, Karlo, you have the most unique report of any I've seen.

The good news? You qualify as a weekend replacement for Brian Williams anchoring NBC News. That is, if you aren't allergic to hair spray and blusher!

I can do news. And I can even do blusher. Set me up for an interview.
