    Kevin Costner also falls under the category "worst actor ever"

    I can't tell you how much shit my sister and I caught during a wedding several years back in Philadelphia. They practically asked us to recite the labels on the liquor bottles over the bar.

    Of course, Vivien Leigh, who played Scarlett (fiddle-dee-dee) was British, if I'm not mistaken.

    My sister, born in Georgia, once went to the counter at Nathan's in Coney Island (dat's Brooklyn for youse uneducated types) and said, ``Could I get two large cokes, please?'' The guy behind the counter looked at her, incredulous, and replied, ``Whaddaya, from England or somethin'?''

    I've been told I was from Massachusetts and Connecticut. In North Carolina.

    For me:
    Your Result: The Inland North

    You may think you speak “Standard English straight out of the dictionary” but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like “Are you from Wisconsin?” or “Are you from Chicago?” Chances are you call carbonated drinks “pop."

    Thank you. It is by far the worst ever -- to the point that as someone from the South, it pisses me off.

    Fair enough. Yet I enjoyed both JFK (one of my top-5 movies) and Robin Hood (decent, for what it was).
