“Customer: I have a question about my account. Teller: Withdrawal?” (joke)

“Withdrawal” shouldn’t be confused with “with drawl,” but there are jokes.

Wikipedia: Drawl
A drawl is a perceived feature of some varieties of spoken English and generally indicates slower, longer vowel sounds and diphthongs. The drawl is often perceived as a method of speaking more slowly and may be erroneously attributed to laziness or fatigue. That particular speech pattern exists primarily in varieties of English, the most noticeable of which are Southern American English, Broad Australian English, and Broad New Zealand English.
