  1. I didn’t think anybody actually pronounced it New Orleans. I assumed everybody called it Nawlins, New Orlins or some variation regardless of where theyre from.

  2. I don’t know if you guys done the worst people on Dr.Phil yet, but i want to see that.

  3. I want to travel to New Orleans. My dad been there and he says its amazing also I am a huge fan of The Originals which is based in New Orleans.

  4. When they associate Larry the cable guy with the south when he’s actually from Nebraska

  5. Two things I would add as a resident:
    1. It is a STREETCAR, not a tram or a trolley
    2. If you are wearing beads when there is not a parade going on, you are probably a tourist.
