This originates, I believe, in pennsylvania and is confined to midland
speech and perhaps to south midland since it is not heard in the southern
half of Iowa (north midland).
Someone who is better versed in regional dialectology than I can probably
give a definitive answer. Am surprised that none such have appeared as yet.
