Not going to lie, I’ve made fun of my friends from the U.P. because of the way they say sorry or the unneeded use of eh, like they’re Canadian, but shut my mouth, come to find out people think that weird SOURRY is actually sexy.  ( I don't even know how to spell their version of sorry.)

Detroit Free Press posted a story about a survey that did, in which they found the sexiest accents around the United States and the Yooper accent ranked in the top 15. The Yooper accent beat out our Midwestern accent and the Cajun accent.

I can’t believe people to find a Cajun accent sexy, I always loved Troy Landry on Swamp people and how he would say “shoot ‘em Lizabeth”. (I posted a video below if you're completely unfamiliar with what I'm talking about.)

As the Detroit Free Press points out it’s a bit unscientific since the website says they based the ratings on a “sample survey result of our 1.5 million social audience“. So basically they just asked on their social media what the sexiest accent is.

But according to Detroit Free Press here’s what said about the Yooper accent

 ‘Yoopernese’ is the dialect you’ll hear in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The accent is heavily influenced by the area’s Scandinavian immigrants, so they say ‘yah’ instead of yeah, “d” for “th” (“dere” for there, “dat” for “that”) and ‘eh’ at the end of most sentences.

The Detroit Free Press says the top 5 sexiest accents are: Texan, Bostonian, New York, Mainer and Chicago.
