    Hi, please try to give your question a meaningful title. – Flaw May 14 '16 at 14:37

Not an expert on Fukuoka dialect or anything else, but I could somehow read the text with no problems.

「~~ごた/ごたあ」 means 「~~のような」 = "(just) like ~~". You might be familiar with the word 「[如]{ごと}き」 that means the same in Standard Japanese.

「水のごたまずおかゆ」=「水のようにまずおかゆ」 = "rice gruel that tastes as bad as water" (It means the gruel is very thin.)

Other dialectal words I know for sure:




"What did you have for breakfast?"

"Untasty rice gruel as thin as water in a bowl this big and (very soft pickled plum)"
