Back in the early 2000s, when Southwest began doing flights from Philly to Boston, they rolled out this huge ad campaign with this commercial of Philadelphians learning a Boston accent by repeating certain phrases over and over again, like, "Park the car on the meter." or "The concert was wicked hard core." or "Dollar, tonic. Dollar for a tonic." and finally just "Chowder." over and over again.
These days I find the Boston accent (which I almost never encounter in the wild) funny, but I was SO FUCKING SALTY about it in high school because there would be all these “how Massachusetts are you” quizzes and I’d get like 0% because it was 100% Boston stereotypes and I was like THE STATE DOESN’T END AT WORCESTER HOW DARE YOU
