CLEVELAND — Cleveland is known for a lot of things, and thanks to a new poll, we can add sexy to that list.

According to a poll from Big 7 Travel (yeah, we've never heard of it either but we are not questioning it because this story is too good not to publish), Cleveland is among the top 50 cities with the sexiest accent. Cleveland ranked No. 23 among the 50 cities mentioned on the list.

Clevelanders may say we don't have an accent, but it's there. We speak with a hard, nasally A and short O that sounds more like "a." It's the best accent to have, in our unbiased opinion.

Coming in at No. 1 is the Texan accent because, sure, why not?
