Maybe not as much regional as global toasts.

French - "A votre sante!"( To your health )
Italian - " Salute!" ( To health ) / "Cin Cin"
British - "Cheers!"
Hungarian - "Ege'sze'ge're!" ( To good health )
Japanese - "Kanpai!" ( pronounced Kampai )
Polish - "Na Zdrowie!" ( To health )
Russian - "Za vashe zdorovye!" ( To your health )
Greek - "Yasas!" / "Eis Igian!" / "Stin ijiasas!"
Chinese - "Wen Lie!" / "Gan bie!"
Irish - "Slainte!"
Swedish - "Skal!"
Brazilian - "Saude!" ( Health )
Spanish - "Salud!" ( Health )
German - "Prost!" ( from Latin 'prosit' - may it be good )
Zulu (Africa) - "Ooogy Wawa!"
India - "Tulleeho!"

In the south interstates get the "I",,,I-85, I-26 or sometime just the numbers, ie..take 85 south.

State roads are called "number" if they are less than 3 digits...Number 9, Number 11, Number 5.

They are called "highway" if they are 3 digits...Highway 101, Highway 296.

Weird.

Back in my old part of Ohio, roads were named by taking the last name from the family at each end of the street. So, I grew up on Bradley Brownlee. There's also, Henn Hyde, King Graves, and Halsey Fusselman to name just a few. You get the idea.

Most people skip the 'a votre' and just say 'sante,' except where they say:
'salut'
'a votre'
'tchin' (doubling is optional)
'salutations petillants' (bubbly salutations... I only know one guy who says this)

Here on Hawaii Island we don't have interstates, so we don't call them anything.

On Oahu they have the H1, H2 and H3, but can the really be called interstates?

Only if they are stateside.

Damn, that's just funny.  :D

 :D I laughed out loud.



Zulu (Africa) - "Ooogy Wawa!"

Wow, that one takes the prize. 
Wonder what the Zulu are drinkin.
Ooogy Wawa!

Born and raised in St. Louis, I had a hard time hearing the phrase "hoosier" on the news in Indanapolis.  After 3 years it still made me chuckle.  In St. Louis, calling somebody a "hoosier" is basically implying they are the lowest level of trailer trash possible.

In Cincinnati instead of saying "excuse me?" or "what?" to ask someone to repeat something, they ask "please?"
I think it's from the German heritage and the word "bitte" but I've never heard that anywhere else.

One phrase that confused the hell out of me when I moved to PA was when waiters/waitresses ask if you would like somehting to drink they usually say, "Can I get you something to drink a while".

I visited Texas last year and all of the major state roads are called Farm to Market XX or Ranch to Market XX, instead of Route or Highway XX. Has to do with the legislative bills that originally funded their construction.

In Maine, if you were not born there, you're "from away".

Growing up in St. Louis, I was aware that Hoosier wasn't an insult everywhere, but it still took the better part of a decade in Indiana to get used to it.

My yankee wife makes fun of me for saying acrossed.  Until she pointed it out I never even thought about it.  It must be a Southern thing.

George Washington threw a silver dollar acrossed the Potomac River. 
We flew all the way acrossed the country. 
It feels funny to say it any other way.

Not so much regional as it is "Weazonal".... when I'm about to do something that could be considered dangerous eg...throw a match to start a bonfire that's been soaked in five gallons of gas.... I like to yell "Stand back and cover your two favorite orifices!!"   ;D
