I think he says "SAMwiches" instead of "sandwiches"

This gets me on a tangent!
For D E C A D E S my SO has used the word "sangwiches" where the rest of us would say "sandwiches." The only other person I've ever heard say it that way is his brother, so I'm guessing they learned it at home. They grew up in Kenosha with a German/Polish dad and Italian mom.

The only place I've ever seen the word sangwich was - of all places - on a food cart at Chase Field when we took an off-season tour there in 2007.

Have any of you ever heard "sangwich" in place of "sandwich"?

No... weird. However, my father-in-law, who grew up in St. Cloud, Minnesota, "warshes" his clothes.

All this makes me think of is how people think "Bubbler" is a Wisconsin thing. No, that is pretty much a Milwaukee thing and a few other localities. The ultimate "What's Bugging Me" thing.

They say bubbler in the fox valley area, and since moving here in the early 90's, that has always bothered me too.

The weirdest one I have come across is Hot Tamales. To me, that is a Mexican dish. When I moved here, one of the first days of school (I am a teacher) hot tamales was on the lunch menu. I went through the line expecting a hot tamale/mexican dish). What I got was a sloppy joe. Not even a spicy version, but a regular old sloppy joe. (I actually called them BBQ sandwiches growing up, but I think they are universally known as sloppy joes) Asking around, I found out that they are known as hot tamales in the town and area I teach in, which to this day makes no sense at all.

I'm in the Fox Valley area and I don't think I've heard sloppy joes called hot tamales before, I also grew up calling them BBQs. I do say bubbler though. Strange since I also grew up calling soda "pop" but I think pop sounds kind of hick (no offense intended to anyone that says pop, it's not that big a deal) so I adapted to soda. But I won't budge off bubbler. I just can't reconcile a bubbler as a drinking fountain in my brain and I don't know why I'd want to start adding words and syllables to refer to something that's already been perfectly optimized as a bubbler lol.

Also I do feel like I've heard "sangwich" but can't specifically remember who or where or when. I have a fuzzy memory of it being said that way on purpose as if to poke fun at someone that did actually say it that way but I can't bring a specific memory to mind. So pretty vague at best.

I grew up calling it pop, it took me 10 years or more to start saying soda, and it still bothers me to say it....soda, just doesn't feel right.

Hot tamales might not be a thing n real cities, the town I teach in is small, and is surrounded by other small towns, all connected in many ways, so maybe hot tamales isn't really a fox valley thing, but a thing in all the little towns that are basically connected by relatives and the like.

I don't post very often. But I visit this site everyday. My spelling will probably be incorrect however here I go.

So, you saw the word "sangwich" written on a food cart? I just think of it as an exaggeration of local dialect. The only time I ever hear sandwich pronounced this way is if someone is purposely over embellishing a certain Midwestern way of talking. Like in "Da Bearz" skit from SNL. Your SO pronounces it that way in a non-joking fashion?

Also, there is no way that Gina Pella actually talks like that, right? That's gotta just be a shtick for the Pella Windows commercial. She sounds like a character straight out of "Fargo".

There’s a current commercial of hers running where she’s got it kicked down about 100 notches and sounds reasonably normal.

I don't like it when people fail to clearly pronounce the first "t" in "important".

My wife doesn't pronounce the "k" in breakfast, neither does her brother or their mother but their father does. It drives me crazy whenever I hear them say it. Our 3 year old has started to pronounce it that way too. Whenever I say breakfast to him I hit the "k" really hard so he knows the correct way to say it but he gets mad and says it back to me without the "k". They're obviously teaming against me.

I don't like 'scuse me. In my mind I think to myself why should I move out of your way when you're too lazy to say the ex in excuse?

The only time 'scuse me is acceptable to me is when Matthew Quigley says it.

Speaking of sloppy Joes, I always though Hermes line of "My Manwich" on Futurama was funny. I also wonder if anyone else wonders how sloppy Joe must have been to go down in culinary history for it. If we can answer that maybe we can tackle why Luke is always warm.

There needs to be a King Thames version of the bible.

According to legend, a cook named Joe at Floyd Angell's café in Sioux City, Iowa, added tomato sauce to his “loose meat" sandwiches and the “sloppy joe" sandwich was born. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Now onto luke!

I am with you on the gender reveals. Was at one a couple of weeks ago - what a waste of time.

The 30th Anniversary of The More You Know promos. I only recognize 2 or 3 people in them and they say the dumbest things. Apparently NBC feels these random 5 second spots have spurred social change.

Listening to Bill Michaels Show (I know, I know), and they have a new commercial for a "manscaping" product that they play every commercial break. It was funny the first time, but after hearing it roughly 15-20 times so far today, it has gotten grating. Do producers not realize that people will literally tune them out when they allow this sort of crap to happen?
