  1. What do you say?

    Pittsburgh as "Pixburgh"
    Steelers as "Stillers"
    You all as "Yinz"
    Rubberband as "Gumband"
    "Worsh" instead of wash
    Shire/flire instead of shower/flower
    Probably is "Prolly"
    A wax material for coloring is a "kran" (only jagoffs call it a crayon)
    Oh and who says idiot? They're called jagoffs
    The only grocery store you go to is "Jyn Iggle"
    You use a buggy, not a shopping cart, at Jyn Iggle
    You often Redd Up your bathroom
    You've never heard of a town called "East Liberty" but you have been to "Sliberty"
    Also, where is Gettysburg? You only know "Gettusburg"
    And Slippery Rock University isn't real but Slippy Rock is
    You hate when jaggers grow on your rosebushes
    Who are the Pirates? They're the buccos.
    You have a favorite "pop" brand
    You enjoy a good "sammich" from time to time
    But that sammich better be a jumbo...a small one but jumbo
    You enjoy riding the incline dahntahn
    You hate traffic in the "Scorll Hill" tunnel
    Milk is actually "melk" and vanilla is really "vanella"
    You know more than what's on the list "n'at" is what makes you Pittsburghese

So maybe you don't live there anymore, but you certainly kept some of your childhood roots from there. You know what a jumbo sammich is, only a jagoff wouldn't

Congrats, you've lived in the burgh your whole life! You know where Cokesburg, Bentleyville, McKeesport, Murrysville and North Versailles are, and yinz certainly knows the best pop deals at Jyn Iggle.
