I call fake on this whole article. The people they quoted are clearly speaking English. There's no way someone in west M'ssurah speaks that way.

PIE THREAD! I think I may have to whip up a cherry soon. Maybe actually take the time to lattice the top crust.

OH! And some home made vanilla ice cream to go with it.

I like pie!

I'd up the price to 3.14159 K
 
2012-07-09 11:37:00 AM  
$3,141.59?

I thought the value of pie is actually closer to $3.14159K

As a proud Missourian I can confirm we love pie. Come for the pie, stay for the hairy German ladies

Well it costs a lot to make those from scratch. You gotta recoup the costs of first inventing the universe somehow...

Indeed, as one of the Western-most of the Western Missourians (as in across the street is Kansas), the vast majority of us are quite articulate. Then again, I'm pretty sure the majority of Western Missourians live in the KC metro, so that sort of skews the statistics a bit.

Go south to the Ozarks and points beyond, that's where it starts to get scary.

That's how idiots from St. Louis talk. In that case, you're about 240 miles off.

Ozarks ain't that scary, but yes, we do talk a little country. I constantly correct people who say Mizz-ur-ee, and I currently live in Oklahoma.

And yes, my though at Weeners was "the article was about KC, not western MO". KC is a big city, and they are a bit different than those of us in the Ozarks.

As a lifelong St. Louisan, I can verify that many of the natives (my ancestors included) "warsh the caar, then clean up in the zink". Some of us can speak correctly, however, and none of the folks hereabouts live in Mizzurah. We all use the long "e" pronunciation.

There's no reason KC and StL need to be at war (except on the sports fields). In fact, it's pretty much the two cities against the rest of the state.

I'm sorry, but "correct" means to inform someone of the proper way of doing something. No damn okie shiatkicker gets to tell me the proper way to pronounce the name of my state.

mih-ZER-ee is the proper pronunciation. All you hillbillies who say "muh ZER uh" can go back to your meth labs and cousin-farking kindred in Arkansas.

In KC I can buy beer from anywhere in the world in (the better liquor stores anyway) dozens of different varieties. In the Ozarks I can buy Bud light, in the fancier places I can get regular Bud; which just goes to show that God hates Missouri so much that he has chosen to withhold his greatest gift.
 
2012-07-09 04:49:45 PM  
everyone I know from KC talk normal. it's not like they are from Rockport or Skank Hoe or somewhere really backwoods.

I do my best to keep boulevard's pale ale in business.

Not a life long KC native, but certainly long term (I measure it in decades instead of years). I agree we're pretty much on par on a vast number of social and political ideologies. Even have family out of St Louis (more long term transplants). I also have know enough St Louis natives not to bring up 1985 unless I'm not planning to do anything other than argue for the next 45 minutes.

....

And there's no reason KC and StL can't be friends. Just as soon as StL quits naming every other street something French, trying to be a second NOLA.

St. Louis was founded by the French, so leave us alone about that. Though pretending we are New Orleans Jr. is a bit ridiculous. We have far more Chicago envy, we're like Chicago's little brother who likes to hang out with him at late night parties trying to hit on hot chicks Chicago invited. And if Chicago tries to gives us crap, we got him by the NARDS, THE CUBS. Occasionally, we comically pretend that we actually know how to make Pizza, as well.

And while the fear of the Blacky-Black has driven a lot of people out out of the City in the past, the giant growing Ring of Cracker is pushing it all back in. All the Drunken, "Cops"-appearing drunken rednecks, Bible-thumping, Meth-Lab explosion victims and Militia starters.

Pushing it all into the County. Where everyone rushes to Baskin Robbins to ask for their favorite flavor, Vanilla.

Yes, I live in OK, but I've yet to pronounce my self an Okie, despite living her for 15 of the last 17 years. Note the end of my previous post. :)

OK, so I kid about the French thing. Yes, I know American history, I know who settled where. I was just having a bit of fun, but then you reminded me of the one thing that really bugs me that comes from St Louis - provol. I keep seeing this provolone/mozzarella mix on a pizza sold as "St Louis Style", so you get the blame. A pox upon whomever thought this was an appropriate thing to put on a pizza crust.

I've never heard anyone here say it any other way, unless they're joking. The only people that say miz-er-UH, are out of towners.

Much like growing up in Cincinnati I never heard any locals pronounce it sin-sih-nat-UH.
I've seen people online and on tv say the locals pronounce it that way, but those people dunno wtf they're talking about. I grew up there and the end is an EE sound not Uh, just like Missouri. The only way they're going to pronounce it any other way is if they're joking or they're trying to mislead you so you'll sound like an idiot to all the other locals.

I've lived any many different places, and I've *never* heard anyone pronounce it "Cin-cin-nat-uh". Ever. There is, however, a city in western MO called Nevada, and it's pronounced Nuh-vay-duh, unlike the state, which is Nuh-vah-duh. I guess it's a regional thing.

Sorry, I don't like beer (I know, sacrilege, right?), so that doesn't matter to me. In Oklahoma, we can only get 3.2 outside of liquor stores, and not after 2 AM or on Sundays. Meh.

I had a teacher from Missouri who said it that way. Perhaps it varies by county.

/unless he was doing it as some sort of long-running joke
