Do other parts of the country say 'yous'? Maybe it's because I have South Jersey roots but I say it a lot. I also say "jawn" more than I probably should and I end up sounding like a crazy person out here in rural Ohio. Yous see that jawn? Yous see Yusmeiro Petit's jawn ($7,100) on that DraftKings jawn?
