    @DAZ0273 The main use of y'all is just an easier way of saying "you all." I'm from Texas so saying y'all is about as normal as a Brit saying something like bloody hell. Oddly enough because of the internet I say stuff like "you guys" a lot more and I've gotten Canadian friends to say y'all.

    I could hear the accent when I read that. Yinz sound like Monty Python!
    You and your "Yinz."  Feel like Pittsburgh Dad is narrating your posts!
