Here, We Play the WordyGurdy

I have noticed since arriving in New Orleans that it takes ten times as many words to say what we might say in Minneapolis.  

For example, a Minnesotan sign to warn criminals that they are on video tape might say,

"Smile.  You're on Camera."

In New Orleans, well...

A few more examples~


New Orleans:
We would like to apologize on your behalf for the inconvenience that we have caused to you.

We'll be there around 5:30.

New Orleans:
We will arrive at your place of residence exactly, approximately, for sure by 5:30.
