Eddyville is Mahaska County.
And? I think you need to do more research bud. Use your googling skills to find out. CycloneRoss wasn't wrong either.

Hint: It's in more than 1 county. It's more than 2 counties. It's Mahaska, Wapello, and Marion.

When i first moved to Minnesota they made fun of my Iowa accent, which to me was straight up no accent. But to them, I sounded a little hickish or southern. And having heard the Iowans with a twang, i knew I didn't sound like that. I said I don't talk funny, you guys do. I said watch the news, they don't say uuuuut for out. Finally when the movie Fargo came out, I was vindicated, because they made fun of the Minnesota accent big time and my friends didn't think there was such a thing as a Minnesota accent until Fargo came out.

When I was in Ag business my freshman year at ISU. We had a guy from Johnston Iowa that has the thickish southern drawl I’ve heard in my life. He definitely played it up because at times he would switch out of it. Finally one day someone said hey name redacted, stop speaking like that you are from ******* Johnson Iowa.

Grew up in New Sharon, town of 1200. I have never met this Derek/Derrick from NS. I'd be curious as to how he sounds when he's sober, because sometimes when I used to drink with friends down in that area, they'd bring out the draw more when they've got alcohol in their system. Some from my school made it a point to talk like that, no clue why. But when traveling to other parts of the state I was/am told I have an accent.
Ive got a Minnesota accent that comes out every once in awhile after drinking a bunch. I have no idea why it’s still around other than that’s where I learned to talk. I’m like 25 years removed from that state though. My mom is the same way but she lived there quite a bit longer than I did.

I stand corrected. I based it on the 4-H'ers that I've judged from Eddyville were part of Mahaska County 4-H.

Right, and I'm sure the school or town has to stake claim in 1 of those as the "most common." I knew growing up in Mahaska county, that I generally attached Eddyville to Wapello more often than the other two.

But back to the main topic at hand, yeah I always love or find it interesting when going to the other parts of the country and learning about how regionally they call the same objects a different name. Shopping cart, sled, stocking hat, etc.

Wapello, Mahaska, and Monroe.

Go to the Warren County fair or Putney Auction in Indianola some time. The 40 and older rural community in warren Co has a lot of southern drawl to it.

A true to life southern accent is when whatever is being spoken seems like it takes maximum effort to barely be pushed out over the bottom lip.

Are you talking about Derek from New Sharon? It's east of here, north of Oskaloosa. I mute the radio for a few minutes every time he comes on.
If its not a schtick, then why do Chris and Ross have him on. If it is a schtick, its not even remotely funny and he's bad at it.

It's a brutal few minutes of radio - I switch the station when he comes on.

Ah man, Eddyville. Was messing around near there once during high school, and somebody pissed in my friend’s car through a back window and then they pulled shotguns on us when we found them. Think they were out shining coons. Quintessential Eddyville.
