12. Still happens to me all the time when I have to give my name, especially on the phone

"First name?"

Dave

"Dive?"

No, DAVE! DAVE!!!!! (wrenches throat into terrble approximation of American accent in order to make the "a" not sound like an "i"

Even after 23 years of living in the U.S. I've still got traces of me old Black Country accent. Am yow orroight? Ar, am orroight!

22. Nice!

I love origin stories. But, despite the difficulties like the one above, you have to admit that the accent has worked well for you at other times.

24. Well, that's the funny thing

When I first emigrated, and for many years afterwards, people would often say "I love your accent!" after hearing it. Fortunately for me, while people can almost always identify what country an accent is from, they're not so great at differentiating between regional accents.

This meant that I was able to thank them for the compliment without feeling the need to mention that a nationwide poll taken a few years earlier had determined my particular regional accent to be "Least employable in the UK."

25. OMG!!!

You're not saying "pikey" are you? That's not "unemployable" as much as "unintelligible."


I have to admit to having a terrible ear for differentiating regions. Weirdly, despite Canada being so vast, there are really only two accent types: Maritime/especially NFLD, and Other.

26. Black Country is not pikey :)

This vid is a pretty great example of some extreme Black Country dialect. Most people where I grew up didn't have it quite this strong, but I had older relatives in the area who talked just like this (note that the first guy talking is doing a poem, people didn't all speak in rhyme, lol).

27. That would take me SOME time to tune my ear to, and probably wouldn't in the time I have left..

I had a friend, now sadly deceased, who was from Glasgow - John Glasgow was his name. He lived in Vancouver for 40 years, but I could still barely understand him. I would sometimes smile and nod if I had already asked him to repeat himself, and I wasn't alone in that.

Funnily enough, when he went back to The Auld Sod to visit, they called him "Yank," because that's what they heard.

Because she is made of wood?

A DUCK! They're going to change Liz Cheney into a duck!

I have the distinct feeling Liz is going to sink.

she did ultimately admit to being a witch. "That's a fair cop".
