I think it is one of the funniest accents I've ever heard!


Well, i wouldnt mind having an accent like that, defiantly distinguishes them from everyone else.

I hate south african accents the worst, "caaaam beeeck hya (come back here)"
followed by new zealand, then australian (yes, kiwis, ozzies have better accents)

A nice plain home counties accent is best, it gains you the most respect abroad. You try being a manager of an MNC in an oil state while speaking in a rough Bradford accent, the sheikhs will laugh at you!

I think a Somalian accent would be more in keeping with your appearance.
How many red-headed, whitewashed Africans have you met?

Are you on drugs?

Apparently nationally accents are becoming less prominent apart from the scouse accent which is still going strong.

Forgot I love the newcastle accent too.

No, I'm not on drugs, you just look like a Somalian accent would suit you, or maybe a Botswanese accent?

No, I'm not on drugs, are you?

It simply struck me as an rather obscure comparison, when one considers that we typically 'place' accents by cultural/visual association :rolleyes:

Why hasn't anyone mentioned Glaswegian accents?! They're ace!

Oh, and I love my boyfriend's Derbyshire accent because he is gorgeous and cute... but all the women around his area sound pretty rough (and look it too! :eek: )

I agree. I always wear earphones whenever I'm in Scotland, they need elocution classes. Please speak properly, we are all English aren't we :rolleyes:

I love the Kent accent, not too Londonish if you know what I mean. Sort of more up market.
Sadly my least favourite has to be a scottish accent on account I can't understand what scottish people are saying.
