Can You Name These Objects with Regional Slang?

So you’ve traveled across the U.S. and you’re sure that no matter where you go, you can fit right in with the locals. You can put on that Texas twang or throw down a California “hella” when the situation calls for it.

But talking like the locals is a little tougher than just putting on an accent. There’s a whole lexicon that lives in each corner of the United States, and even everyday objects end up with unexpected names. Even the very food we eat can be called by vastly different names based on where you’re eating it.

Of course, a rose by any other name smells just as sweet…but it’s still nice to know what everyone’s talking about. Take our regional slang trivia quiz and find out if you’ll be able to make yourself understood across these great United States or if you’ll be left lost and confused when someone breaks out the word “hotdish.”


Hi there, reader! Thanks for being here… We’ve been serving up magically silly quizzes to keep you in the know about yourself since 2015, and it’s thanks to friendly folks like yourself that we’re still going strong. It’s been a blast to help millions of you “learn” where you grew up based on your taste in snacks and whether or not you’re an actual perfectionist. And then, of course, we’ve been there for you when you’ve wanted to know who your real soulmate is based on all your exes.

Whether you’re a first-time reader or you’ve been dropping by our site for years, we really appreciate the part you play in making our work here possible. We love what we do because not only do we get to spend our time writing fun quizzes, we also get to put it in front of millions of people and make their day just a little bit more fun.

We love making people happier than they were before they clicked on our site. It may sound like a lofty claim, but don’t worry, we’re realistic about it. We’re not important like food shelves and college scholarships. We just want to make life better at about the level of, say, knock-knock jokes and fried cheese curds. It’s the small joys, ya know?

If you want to be a part of it more than simply taking a quiz, that would be awesome. We’re always looking for contributors. Whether you want to become a regular writer or just send in a one-off submission, we’d love to hear from you. You can email [email protected].

Alright, that’s enough from us. We’re heading back to the internet. If you are, too, here’s another quiz we think you’ll like…
