In reality we all sound like C3PO, of course, especially Everso. Except Myky (Peter Cushing) and RedArmy (R2D2).

This is surprisingly funny.

Hold on, hold on.  C3PO - is that the tall one or the short one?



There'll be a test later.

Ah, right.  I'm the tall one.  I didn't want to be the short one that whistles and beeps. 

That'll be Rader.   Grin

Hadaway'n'shite, kidda. Wrang side a the watter for a start. Riddled with bent vowels, especially Mackemspeak.

Many of my American friends are surprised to learn how much accents can vary in the space of 50 miles in the UK.  The noticeable difference from Edinburgh to Glasgow, Manchester to Liverpool, or Hampshire to Somerset.  

I have decided that the most attractive accent on British women is working class South East.  Anything from really filthy Essex to something a little more refined, like Jayda.   The least attractive are Glasgow and Wales.

When it comes to men, however, Wales fares considerably better, with possibly only the Geordies making me want to join them for a pint more than the Welsh.

What are your favorite British accents?


Stokie is best.

My mate from Somerset defected to The West, and now has the weirdest bastardised accent ever - broad Zummerzet with a strong Aussie inflection.
