Regional dialect

People are doing various versions of that 'regional dialect' meme. Here are some of my answers:

What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?: WTF? Apparently this is something that they do in America for a joke. Who knew? Doesn't it go all soggy when it rains?

What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?: fizzy drink

What do you call gym shoes?: pumps

What do you say to address a group of people?: Ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure. And I hope it always will. (copyright, The Two Ronnies, 1973)

What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?: Harvestman. A Daddy Long Legs is a kind of fly.

Long bread roll that they make a sandwich out of: French bread, or if feeling posh 'a baguette'
