Friday Funny: Pittsburgh Dad

My family is from the "Burgh. Even though my parents moved from the area before I was born, some Pittsburgh-isms moved with us. When we'd go home to visit - the accent, speed and intensity of talking would amp up. I would come home from visits with a sprinkle of "Yins" and "Warsh" peppering my vocabulary - as well as increasing my talk speed by a 25% minimum!
Earlier today I came across a Youtube page called "Pittsburgh Dad" - if you are from the "Burgh" - I'm sure you'll appreciate this series. For all my Aunts and Uncles these clips remind me of - thanks for the memories and don't forget to red up the room before your have company over!

Yins best check it out - it's a keeper if you as me!

I can so relate to Pittsburgh-isms. I lived about an hour north of Pittsburgh the first 18 years of my life. I still sprinkle my vocabulary with Pittsburgh-isms.

I think the world is a better place with Burgh-isms sprinkled through it.
"Yins have a great day!"
