Been so long since i lived in Michigan.

Do you all still use the term “Pop”?

Do you all still call the night before Halloween “Devils Night”?

Do you still play “Euchre”?


All my life.
Yes, yes, yes.

If you use 2s&3s and not 5s to score euchre, you’re from Ohio. The exit is that way…


I can’t even understand my Step-Dad. He has the deep finnish Yooper accent.

I’m a uniquely cursed lions fan who has literally zero connections to Detroit, or Michigan, except for this franchise.


Pop? Yes
Devil’s night? Not where I’m from on the west side.
Euchre? All dang winter.


lol, never even knew it existed until I moved to Michigan. And when introduced to it, I said “oh so kind of like Spades”. Apparently Euchre players are very sensitive to this topic because it was not received well.

Well fine, I’ll just play Spades then. Been playing that since I was 15.


Probably something like this… :rofl:

In Canada, I can confirm yes to all of those!

Also, you better have a 24 in the fridge and mickey in the cupboard.

I’ve been given some major shit about my accent…it’s just certain words. I don’t know how to exactly explain it, but with some words it sounds like I’m adding a Y to the enunciation. Like instead of saying talent…it sounds like I say tyalent. For our Canadian members…I say Cyanada

The one I get the most hell over is Dammit. Next to any version of shit, it’s a favorite go to, quick trigger expletive that I use more regularly than I should.

and I tend to say it in a long drawn out way…Dyyyyyaaammmmiittttt!!!


When I lived in a different state, they told me they knew I was from Michigan because I extended my vowels when I spoke.


Everyone has an accent as seen from another part of the country.


I get the same experience in Kansas City with people pointing out my Northern accent. I’ve been told it’s most prevalent when I say the word “on”. We say it as “ahn”.

I still maintain you can spot the Michiganders, because they all immediately call out the Ohio accent, which we know all too well. No one else cares to notice it.

Michiganders love the word “yet” (which adds nothing to meaning of a question but we throw it in there anyway).
