Quiz: Do you speak New Orleans-eze?
How are you with other languages?
This will be a tough one, unless you now or have ever lived in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana. We speak a different language there, and I don't mean French. See if you can figure out these common phrases that you may hear on any street corner or in any park in the great city on the Mississippi.
There are many ways that you can identify a New Orleans native. You know you're a New Orleans native if you proudly claim that "Monkey Hill" is the highest point in South Louisiana. Or if you can cross two lanes of rush hour traffic and make a U-turn through a neutral ground while avoiding two joggers and a streetcar, then fit into the oncoming traffic flow while never touching the brake.
The people of New Orleans are unique, with a their own way of saying things and a unique perspective on life. New Orleaneans think that the four seasons of the year are crawfish, shrimp, crab and oyster.
So are you ready to see if you are a native New Orleanean?
Go ahead, take the quiz. I double dog dare you.
