My Regional Dialect Meme Video!

I came across an interesting (and mostly fun) blog post yesterday at Little Chief Honeybee.  There is a regional dialect meme circulating around Tumblr and the web.  You just record yourself saying a few selected words and give your answers to a few questions.  A quick search on Tumblr or YouTube will give you tons of videos to watch and it's interesting to see how the dialects sound from around the world.

It's easy to participate. Here are the words and questions.

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?
