Last year, Business Insider published a boatload of maps from North Carolina University's Joshua Katz illustrating how Americans speak totally different from one another, depending on where in the U.S. we live.

Some of them are pretty interesting; others are downright hilarious. We suggest browsing through the entire list at your leisure (here's the link again)

Here are a few of the maps that we really got a kick out of.
