    That’s hilarious. My Nana is from New Orleans and oi became er for her. So yes it was "I’m on the terlit" or "Berl some water", "Frie the craw fish in erl"

    I used to get made at Justin Wilson when I was 5 because I thought he was making fun of my Nana…had no clue that it was an actual accent LOL.

    Hi Sara,

    I noticed you’re a speaker on the Dutch Dev Days the 28th and 29th of May. I’ll try to attend one of you talks, but I must admit I find that New Orleans I little hard to follow, so I hope you also speak ‘slangless’ English 🙂
