The Devil Came Up To Boston

The Adam Ezra Group (previously on MetaFilter) has released an instructional video for the benefit of those seeking a greater understanding of the distinctive accent particular to the greater Boston area, as well as a deeper appreciation of the many colorful idiomatic expressions indigenous to the region, all set to a possibly recognizable Charlie Daniels tune - The Devil Came Up To Boston (very much NSFW or Yankees fans)

Love it. As a transplanted NYer but Boston resident for over 30 years now, after the Boston marathon bombings me and all my friends and family were annoyed by the whole "Boston Strong" wording because we thought a much more Bostonian sentiment would be, "Boston. Because Fuck You."

I gotta go make those shirts and start selling them.

So she didn't want the little schoolgirl outfit, but she went with the cutoff top and bottom that had half as much material?

(No, you aah.)

No, she didn't like the Devil horns and tail, or the trident.

The folks on my Facebook friends list have been sharing this. It's cute, though it's more of a take on a very specific type of Bostonian.

Very true, xingcat. And to his credit, Ezra does admit to faking the accent (though he did a pretty good job with it).

Boston, Because Fuck You.

Or for something a little less harsh, but also uniquely Bostonish, Kelly's Roast Beef Song and One for You, New England.
