EXIT 4 I-95s To: Arcadia Management Area, Richmond RI
Ok, Folks, time for a RoadSpoke Road Test… and now the Fast Facts. In Rhode Island, there are some very famous summer residents . They also have a peculiar accent as well as some peculiar laws. For instance, it is considered an offense to throw pickle juice on a trolley. That seems reasonable enough right?…Just slightly absurd… You may not sell toothpaste and a toothbrush to the same customer on a Sunday. You cannot smoke a pipe after sunset. And, of course, it is illegal to wear transparent clothing.
Rhode Islanders think they are well travelled. On the other hand, The state is so small, they consider any drive that takes more than 20 Minutes A Road Trip.
If you mix a Boston accent with Italian-American slang you pretty much get the jumble of confusion that is the Rhode Island accent. So don’t be alarmed if you’re an outsider and someone calls a water fountain a “bubblah.” Plus, Rhode Islanders make up for the omission of Rs by adding Rs on the end of words they technically don’t belong in: “Hey, why don’t you drink from that bubblah? It’s a wicked good idear…”
One name that may resonate well with a Rhode Island accent is Taylah Swift. Yup, you hoid right. The beautiful and talented singah songwritah has a huge summa home in Watch Hill Rhode Island. Get off at the upcoming Westerly Exit if you want to see it. It’s in the exclusive summah resort of Watch Hill.
Now for the Test. In Rhode Island, can you throw pickle juice on a trolley? Well? If you said no you’d be correct. Go to the head of the cah.
