third worst regional accent?

SeattlesbigDprolapsedME - I live/born/raised in California, but still dont get the California accent. If you mean the stoner surfer talk...thats just a stoned surfer. This is glorified on TV and typically kids from the midwest trying to fit in.

What does a Californian talk like?

Upward inflection. I live in so cal (born and raised) and I only started noticing it when someone mentioned it to me. 

Pidgin is top three!
