Loud and proud New Englander.

You were clearly raised and/or live in the greatest, oldest region of America. Consequently, you have extremely high standards for seafood and ice cream, and can't help but say "chowdah" no matter how faint your accent is. Heck, you probably churned butter at Sturbridge Village once, didn't you?
