Im bored and I was talking about this with my friend so thought I would ask you guys.

For me the sexist one is the Irish accent (Whhooaarr!!) and most girls I know like that one, has to be a southern Irish accent. I also think there is something sexy about a true highland accent and a welsh accent.

what accent(s) sent you daft?

I like Southern British accents which is a pretty naff answer I guess as that's where I'm from!! NOT posh accents though Bad! For some reason I LOVE the way Christian Bale sounds in his film 'The Prestige', it makes me totally fancy him big time. I wouldn't say I like Irish accents but I do like Gabriel Burne(sp) the Irish actors accent.

My male vote goes for Irish too, and Welsh. Sorry Tammy but American accents do my head in, and they can't spell either. Maybe this is work related, as most of the people that are a pain in the arse for me are all American. Maybe I just know the wrong Americans?

Frank has a Nottingham accent, which is something I seem to have a love hate relationship with.

We had dinner a couple of weeks ago with the girl who's place I've taken at work and her boyfriend who is Australian (and now happens to be her husband Very Happy great story, I'll post about it later).... He responded to Aaralyn a few times with a very Australian accented "no worries mate", so that's now Aaralyn's new favorate phase. She was fascinated to have met someone in person who talks like the Wiggles LOL!!

And Owen, I wish I could change your impression of Americans with my great spelling skillz, but they aren't so grate sumtyms Wink Razz I do have to agree though, I do not know many American men who can spell well, but we're not all ignorant and annoying I hope Confused ... We have to get you around some of the right Americans Very Happy

I like scottish accents, but no the stereo typical groundskeeper willie ones. I like the ones that sound more irish britishish.

I dont know if you guy's have them over there?but Maybe you can get one of those pre paid cards?While we were in Europe we got them and called home often.I think we mainly got them from post offices or travel agency's. We would pay 10 Euro and speak for at least a hour and a half (calling a land line).

Some examples:

You say color we correctly say colour
Recognize should be recognise (lots of other z's instead of s's)
Center should be centre
Pants are trousers (pants are worn under trousers)
And don't ever say fanny pack to somebody over here, its a bum bag.
Station wagon is an estate car. Why even call it a wagon, they were pulled by horses.

Sorry I'll stop there.

It's not one individual its what you've done to the English language itself. But why should I care, I'm Welsh!

Well i am not a 100% sure where he gets them from. But i am pretty sure he just buys them from a local newsagent hun. One of the corner shop type places. I know WHSmith used to sell them aswell but not sure what they do anymore, they stopped selling them before i left working for them because they were having problems with that particular supplier, the plan was to find a different supplier and carry on selling them but i left before they changed so not sure what happened? If you don't have an independent shop near you try a spar type place, i think they may sell them too hun! I can't ask my brother at the mo as he is visiting his friend in Thailand at the moment.
