And here's one to go with,  "Nice haircut mate, did you get run over by a lawnmower ? "

Hi Geoff,

Nope! Rise up lights! (How Aussies say razor blades).

I once dated a Sheila.

Accents can sound a bit different or funny to others which are from other areas than their own which may speak the same language. I remember the old Hee Haw TV shows and reruns. Archie Campbell had a segment where he would state a phrase or word in Southern Slang and then define what it "meant".  :happy: Similar to your description of the difference of english accent as compared to other english speaking places. The show was a big hit nationwide. We all laughed together.

For this people's heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

I am an accent connoisseur.  I love hearing how different people from different parts of the world talk, not only the words they use, but their mannerisms, and the subtleties about how they communicate.  Sometimes I go over to the Australian boards just watch how you Aussies talk.  Australian English seems more fun than any other dialect!  :grin:
