ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — A new survey has concluded that the Chicago accent is the fifth sexiest accent in the country, beating out the Cajun, the Minnesotan, the Californian, and others.
The Big 7 Travel website polled its 1.5 million readers and ranked 50 accents from across the nation, saying about the Chicago accent: “Where to begin? Some hate it, but turns out a LOT love it. Words like “but” and “cut” sound a bit more like “bought” and “caught”, and you’re not “looking at a picture”, you’re “lookin’ atta pitcher.”
Chicago was beaten out by Maine, New York, Bostonian, and Texan as the country’s sexiest accents.
The Long Islander accent was ranked as the worst.
