California formative years clearly perverted my chance at that pure Kansas dialect.

My dad spent his 7th grade year living in Tampa, Fla. and one time told me about sunshowers when I was a kid and it was raining while sunny. We were in Kansas, but he said they used to have them all the time in Florida.  I always thought that is what everyone called it, "sunshowers." I was way wrong.

Apparently only Floridians call them that.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Winston-Salem, Chattanooga, forgot the third and lost the link.

My time in New Orleans really had me wanting to say crawfish and neutral ground.

Same. I chose crawdad because I think I actually used it in conversation a couple weeks ago.

I got the same on the first try.  I took it again and realized I say cot and caught differently and that changed something to Omaha, I think.

What about this question:

Quote
What do you call a traffic jam caused by drivers slowing down to look at an accident or other diversion on the side of the road?

I answered "I have no word for this," and was basically blue all over the map.  Is there a common word for this in KS?

i think i answered that "rubbernecking" is something people do when they look at a wreck but i didn't know a word for the jam itself.

I call it "slowing down to look at a car wreck"

The seeming accuracy is, like, both amazing and also not surprising.
