What American accent do you have?

While I sometimes take online quizzes, I usually don't post the results. This quiz by Xavier Kun is an exception. If you try to imagine the author's voice when reading blogs, he says mine will have an accent called The Inland North
You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

Actually, I haven't been asked those questions, being from Wisconsin it would only be annoying to be asked if I'm from Chicago, and carbonated drinks are "soda".
