About Those British Accents…

Anyone’s who’s read this blog for a while knows how much I love the British accent. My son, however, has such a difficult time understanding them that he won’t even bother watching movies or TV shows that feature British actors. Considering that some of my very favorite movies and TV shows do actually feature British actors, you can see how we don’t spend much time watching together. Of course I’d be lying if I said the accents never confuse me. But then, the confusion is a big part of the fun! ;)

Who’s On First?

The title to this post is, of course, in reference to Abbott & Costello’s famous Who’s On First comedy sketch – something, oddly enough, I think of whenever I hear the term Third World. I mean, who is it, exactly, that’s arrogant enough to think they can decide who lives in what world?

Oh wait… I think I know… Well, we do love a little whine with our cheese, don’t we? :oops:

I’m reblogging it here because I’d like to know how you feel about your results… That quiz, I think, also fits quite well with these items I found an Deison’s Blog on Tumblr last night…
