They missed a regionalism here - bubbler wasn't an option for what the water comes out of.

That quiz so should have had more questions.

No! It is not! It's the most annoying sound in the english language. Well, except from anytime Fran Dresher speaks...

Well, at least you probably won't give me crap about "wicked".

"Down East" is eastern Maine along the coast and that's a whole different thing out there.

Mainiacs - a descriptive as well as a collective term... *grin*

Well, yeah. Because all y'all is the plural of y'all. Sort of.

Yarrghh! This is insane! "Y'all" or "All Y'all" are not English words. This conjunction does not exist in the English language. Show me a proper English dictionary with this bastardization of the language in it and I'll...burn the frellin' book because "Y'all" IS NOT A WORD

Contraction, not conjunction.

Most other bits of slang or colloquialisms are also not proper English. However, if you use frellin' in a sentence complaining about it, you have essentially invalidated the argument.

Ayuh, contractions too. I only used "frellin'" in the post because I wanted to keep it clean. :-p It's just a placeholder.
