What the previous posters said. I'm from southern Louisiana (near New Orleans), and fake New Orleans accents always make me cringe. Hollywood would have people believe that a New Orleans accent sounds like a Savannah, Georgia accent. In reality the New Orleans accent sounds much like the accents of major port cities in the Northeast (New York, Boston, etc.).
I read your post in a horrific New Orleans accent in my head! I didn't even realise I was doing it, sorry! =D
