Ok - really, I'm going to get down to work, but first...

I found this Slanguage quiz at Blogthings. It's amazingly accurate!!

Your Slanguage Profile

Canadian Slang: 100%
British Slang: 75%
Victorian Slang: 50%
Aussie Slang: 25%
Prison Slang: 25%
New England Slang: 0%
Southern Slang: 0%

I'm Canadian, with an English mother whose Polish father learned his English in post-war Britain. Guess the Victorian slang comes from my study of history, while some of my family lives in Australia and I watch Aussie tv shows from time to time (Behind the Frontline and McLeod's Daughters among others). NO idea where the prison slang comes from - pop culture, I imagine *g*.

I had to guess on most of them, too. I ended up 50% Canadian and 25% everything else except for New England, which came it an a big fat goose egg.
