It's legal for women to walk around topless in my city. Not many women do it though

The High Tider dialect, or “Hoi Toider,” is only spoken in North Carolina’s Outer Banks and Pamlico Sound regions. Though linguistically a dialect of English, it’s so thick that any outsider unused to deciphering it would be hard-pressed to follow. Punctuation, vocabulary, and grammar can be traced to Southwestern England — to visitors passing through, it sounds nothing short of its own language.

we have something like that here in Maryland, on the small islands lining the eastern side of the Chesapeake Bay. some are only accessible by boat and have mail & doctors flown in. to this day, some still use the Old English long S that looks like an "f" for the letter "s" on signs!
