Ok, me and a friend were out last night having a few drinks and whilst we were in the queue at the burger shop we got chatting to some lasses from Derby, and the first thing they said to us was 'say lush!, say lush!' and then a series of other words and phrases followed. The thing is, this has happened before on several occasions, and on facebook I've also noticed a group called 'Yes I'm a geordie, stop asking me to say Byker Grove'.

I find it quite humerous but was just wondering what the whole big deal is about it? I've never in my life seen anyone with any other accent made to say certain dialect etc on demand! lol

Anyone else on here suffered this accent treatment or even subjected anyone to it? Post your stories or views on here!

I don't get the attraction.

Isn't "Lush" a Welsh thing ? It seems to be all Stacy from Gavin & ever says .

I can think of better accents. Scottish accents are simply marvellous.

I'm not sure on the origins of the word lush if I'm honest like lol, just know that I'm always told to say that, I know when I go to uni I'll probably get it as well, I was on a camp a year ago with loads of people from Manchester (I was the only person from Newcastle) and I was nicknamed geordie all week and tormented all the time ! haha better than the manc accent, aye a love me accent although I have learned to speak 'properly' so to speak, but only save that for ATC when flying.

I can always tell the difference from a mackam and a geordie, I guess its just if your from round here, and yeah mines evident but not the broadest, but when you move away from the area it must seem so broad cos everyone can always tell.

When I met some Scottish people before, and they kept telling me to say 'heaven' and 'seven' because apparently I have a strong Welsh accent :rolleyes: so it's not just the Geordies, honest.
And I always say lush, I thought it was a Welsh thing too

I actually laughed out loud for about 30 secs!

I live about a two minute drive from where the Arctic Monkeys are from and as such have been asked to do lines from their songs. People can be cruel sometimes... :p:

Yeah I guess it does seem broader but I don't have a mackem accent either. I have a really mild geordie accent considering I spent loads of time in Gateshead growing up. I agree that its easy to distinguish mackem from geordie though.

Deep down I love it though coz it always gets me attention as Scottish people seem to LOVE going out in Newcastle :P
