Birmingham "Brummie" accent.

1:45 When asked what came to mind when you think of Birmingham a passer by said "1 million people with a speech impediment" I laughed too much and then felt guilty.

4:05 is when you hear the real accent from people stopped in the street.

I have been told that everyone in London has an accent like Poppy. I have two questions:

1) Is this true?

and

2) If it is true, how much will it cost to move to London? I'm willing to live on the street if necessary--after all, you can still hear people talking on the street.

Ha! I cannot name a hot Aussie off the top of my head (I'm sure there are many, but I'm blanking).

Country singers just don't do it for me. I was listening to "Ladies Love Country Boys" once and I couldn't stop crying, I was laughing so hard.  ;)

Several positions, mostly Centre Forward or a Second Striker. But I can also play Attacking Midfield, or Defensive Midfield, and do on a regular basis.

I can do a pretty convincing West Nebraska southern accent.  It ain't really the real thing but pretty close.  Especially if you're a furriner, then you probably can't tell the difference.  I lived in Jo-gah for a while and can kinda pull that one off.  Texas is a bit too twangy.  My buddy from back in the day was from Florida and had a pretty heavy Boomhauer accent (yes, some people are actually from Florida).

Maybe it's just that I don't have the subtle ear required to tell them apart, but everyone on American tv seems to sound like that.

Many areas of the states have the same accent to me. The variants to me are: Southern, New Yorker, High North (almost canadian) and Northwest US. Other than those, they are practically the same.

Aaargh.  That furriner needs to go back to Mexico or France or wherever he came from and learn how to speak proper 'merican then try agin.  He's not at all convincing, unlike that doctor House character.  Now he can talk like a real American even if he is from Zimbabwe or wherever.
