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! 😉
That video is from the Anglophenia channel on YouTube. Other videos from them that I liked were How To Insult Like the British, Why Brits and Americans Spell Differently, and Brits vs Americans: Who’s Smarter?
And on the subject of whether Brits or Americans are smarter, I think this Hugh Laurie and Ellen DeGeneres “competition” clip answers that question rather nicely – at least when it comes to interpreting each others speech! 😀
Did you see how the show cheated for Ellen on her “Chuffed To Bits” answer? So much for those Jaguar ads!
I want ice water.
