Madras Thamizh

No. This is not about that oft repeated wiki entry on Madras Bashai. What amuses me is the fact, how come Madras thamizh is associated with the very few who actually talk that slang?
People who have travelled the length and breadth of TN will know, that people in Madras talk the least accented thamizh. Thanks to some old black and white movies, especially those of cho and coconut srinivasan, the rickshaw lingo has stuck as Chennai Thamizh.

Might be during college days, just for the heck of it, some people might use madras thamizh a lot. Am not degrading or saying anything about thamizh from other regions. But then dont blindly generalise that madras thamizh is a slang. IT IS NOT :)
