I hear it all the time. "Where's the car worsh?" "Can I get an extra worshrag/worshcloth?" "I need to worsh myself".

How/When/Where did this become standard for old people?? I NEVER hear a young person say it. I mean, imagine... "Jimmy, say that again and I'll worsh your mouth out with soap!"

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHH!

I've always asked myself if there are indeed too many guys here who have too much time on their hands and no idea how to handle real life.

The answer is: Yes!!! Thanks for proving this Airlinelover!

Actually, I thought it was more of a geographic dialect thing; like the way Bostonians say 'pahk yoah cah in the Hahvahd yahd' or New Yorkers say 'cawl' or 'cawfee' or Philadelphians say 'wooder'.

The only person(s) I've known to have said 'worsh' are originally from Spokane, Washington state. The one I've heard say it the most is a 40 year old friend of mine.

If it's due to age, maybe it's because of a slurred speech thing.

Funny, my Aunt from Baltimore says it. So I guess it's unique to the Washington, Illinois, Ohio, Maryland quad-state area.

No, even down here it's an older person thing. They also saw "fohrwth" instead of "fourth," which I think is similiar.

It's not as bad as yankees (like my dad) saying "idear." My gosh, it's IDEA!

My best friend always says it and he is from Virginia. My stepdad says it and he's from South Carolina. I have known a lot of people from Maryland who say it to. Personally I think it sounds awful.

Wow...that's the worst! For many people here in WASHington state, hearing it pronounced "Worshington" or even "Warshington" is like nails on a chalkboard! Even our newly reelected senior US Senator says "Warshington"...uggghhh.... Nuts

Of course, there are a LOT of midwestern transplants around here... Insane

Being from Spokane, Washington, I can offer this insight. My friend's grandfather still says Warshington, and we always laugh and joke with him. He claims, that back in the day, they were taught to say Warshington (as in the state) as opposed to Washington (automatically implying D.C.) Claims it goes back to grade school and all. Its an older person thing here as far as I can tell. Its fun though, because I now have an employee from DC (as I refer to it) who will tell people he's from Washington, thinking that we all assume we know he's talkin' bout DC. In the background you'll hear me holler, "You're from DC bitch!"

In Oklahoma, especially in the rural areas where people have taken off the hood of old cars to make a planter out of them and displayed them in the their yard, people say worsh. They also say things like "ain't", "Have a goodin," and the worst one of all, "I'm fixin' to go to the store."

Hey, 159th was like the Mason Dixon line growing up. South of the malls was tumbleweed country with a radio antenna interdispersed here and there. Today's a different story, but if it's not Joliet that's referred to, it might as well be fixin' to be East St. Louis. All the same thing.

tORlet is another one.

Central Illinois as well (Decatur) although I went to private schooling elsewhere and say WASH and TOILET, not worsh and torlet.

It is most definitely a Midwest thing.

Geeze, had no idea there were so many people with Central Illinois links here :P I cry when I go back, can't wait to get the hell out, although I'm happy to see that at least Bloomington/Normal has caught up with times, Decatur is still, well, 1800s.. Springfield has always been fun!
