    Lol! I didn’t know how fond of the Bahston accent people are until I left New England and went to Canada. Apparently it’s a lovable aspect of my character that when you rile me up I call you a Muthahfahkah.

    Well, I am from a suburb of Boston. I don’t think I sound like that. I know add R’s to words, like tuna (tuner) or Parka (parker).
    I went to college in Miami, and a lot of people thought I was from New York…go figure???
    Thanks for sharing this…BOSTON STRONG!
