Most Popular NY Times Article of 2013 Was About How People Talk Weird

The New York Times just released its most popular articles of 2013. What was the number one most visited piece? An interactive feature that proved how Americans talk weird. Hey, news is great and all, but fun is fun!

Titled “How Y’all, Youse and You Guys Talk,” the piece presented questions to readers about dialect, analyzed their answers, and then spit out a location that was supposed to pinpoint where in the nation the person was from.  [Editor's note: For the record, the thing worked. I was raised in Pittsburgh and my "most likely" location was Pittsburgh.]

See below for the rest of the top 10 most visited Times articles for 2013.
