The Late Show Accent-Off: Minnesota Edition – All True

Nice (see how I did that) showcase showdown between the ‘Up North’ vs. “The Cities’ accents. My cousin Eric Pollard (AKA Actual Wolf) was right, Comedian Maria Bramford went “Full Keyboard Lounge Proctor Drunk Accent” in this throw down with Late Show writer Ariel Dumas.

Long Live Duck Duck Grey Duck

I couldn’t agree more with Katie Heaney’s Minnesota memories of Duck, Duck, Grey Duck.  I was pleasantly surprised to see a map I created more than a year ago used to illustrate the point in her BuzzFeed.  The friendly debate that’s followed has been entertaining.  Here’s my advice, if you haven’t tried Duck Duck Grey Duck #DDGD, give it a shot. It’s not like DDGD is a gateway activity that will lead to a life of debauchery or something…unless you’re into that. Go out with some friends, grab some beverages, find a park and come up with the most ridiculous names for a duck.
