Regional Dialect!

So I've been seeing a lot of kids doing this regional dialect video and thought it would be fun to join in! Andrew and I are located in Western NC - basically we're mountain folks. Since people from our area are usually classified as "red necks" we decided to try the regional dialect challenge. Now, please forgive the video quality, I don't think my poor computer was up for much this evening. So, if you can, just bear with it! 






Say these words:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught

Now answer these questions:
What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?
What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
What do you call gym shoes?
What do you say to address a group of people?
What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
What do you call your grandparents?
What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

Thanks for watching and if you decide to do this too then please leave a link in my comments section, I'd love to watch yours too!!
