I didn't see "yinz" in the western Pennsylvania region, so it may not be 100% accurate. ^-^

Pretty much. When one inquires whether his companions are planning to go into the city, he asks,"Yinz goin' dahntahn?"

Then he asks, "Jeet yet?" to find out whether they've already dined. If not, they visit a restaurant, where the waitress says, "Yinz ready to order?"

Geez...Texas looks to be diluted in almost all cases. Maybe some different words should have been chosen, like:
Fahr aintz. How d' y'all say fahr aintz?
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.
