Universally Speaking...

Posted August 29th, 2010 at 04:35 PM by I Laugh at your Misfortune!

Just a quick rant :D


Groundskeeper Willie, Cheryl Cole, The Queen, Wayne Rooney and The Arctic Monkeys. All British, and all sporting completely different accents. Add in the Welsh, and you've got a right mix there. And yet, the phrase "British Accent" is still used to describe the way the Queen speaks, despite the fact that 90% of Britain DOES NOT SPEAK LIKE THAT.

Y'know what, I doubt anybody's going to listen or care. So I'm just going to get my own back in my own pathetic little way, by referring to every other accent in the entire world as the "Non-British Accent". See how that goes down with the Texans when I say they're indistinguishable from Canadians. I'm betting not well.

ILAYM, signing off!

    I get just as annoyed when Brits were constantly mistaking me for American, even after I told them I was Canadian.. so.. I say fair game.
