I found a meme!

Okay, I know I just posted but then I found this regional dialect meme that looked fun so I am totally spamming your friends list. Or at least Polytchi's friend list.

1. A body of water, smaller than a river, contained within relatively narrow banks.

If it's smaller than a river than it's either a stream or a creek, depending on how pretty it is and how I feel when at the moment.

A grocery cart.

4. The thing that you cook bacon and eggs in.

Frying pan, though I don't like bacon or eggs very much.

5. The piece of furniture that seats three people.

Couch, unless you're talking about a chair and my friends because we can fit three people on anything.

A gutter? I think part of it is a drainpipe.

Non-existent here! Or a basement, that works too.
