Can you speak Philly?

March 20, 2008

Geno’s Steaks in Philadelphia has won its battle to post “Please Speak English” signs in its restaruant

Now, does that mean you can’t speak Philly, an intensely studied dialect of English that has its a published grammar and dictionary, in the restaurant?

Yo, if youse guys visit Geno’s, ya betta go to der website and learn how to order so ya dont hold up da line. And if you’re driving to get there, remember that an important stretch of I-95 is closed.
