The Dialect Game! [Vlog]

I have seen this game passed around the blogosphere, and I think it's neat to hear what people all around the world sound like and to hear their responses are!
Here is what you do:

Say these words: Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

Now answer these questions:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

I just have to say, I really do not like watching myself!! I am just sitting here cringing at my grammar and nervous lip smacking...

Make your own dialect video and be sure to link it in a comment!!

What a silly and fun idea!! I'll have to wait until I get on a computer with sound (and not at work, hehe) so I can watch your video. I was pronouncing the words out loud to myself and had to laugh about how many people here in WV would make fun of my Michigan accent. accent is NOTHING like the people that live up north anymore. I have a strange mix of accents now. :)
