Accents

Me and my buddy, or shall I say m8, went up to a water park for the weekend and talked and acted like we were Canadian the entire time. Any time someone would ask us something or we asked someone something, we'd talk with a super thick Canadian accent. Like saying, ya there hey, don't ya know there ya, eh, idk the whole shabang. Anyone else do this for fun? If you don't you should try it, it's a lot more fun than you might make it out to be

Please make a tape of this Canadian "accent" so that I might mock you endlessly... in my not so Canadian accent.



Sounds like you were trying to pull off a maritime accent and even then...there are many variations of that too dontcha know bye.

What was the response of the people around you?

Did you talk about poutine? How about maple syrup?

Except for the 'eh', reminds me of the movie Fargo.

I have yet to be told I sound like I'm from the Maritimes anywhere else in Canada, or that I sound Canadian anywhere else.

Its give or take on the pop thing. Some call it pop, I call it soda. At soccer tourneys where theirs people from all over the world, me and my buds talk like were Swedish to pick up the chicks. For some reason they are always amazed by accents. Kilts are a big thing too. hahaha

You don't need to. Leave the south and you will make any man melt.

Uhh, not that you don't do that now, but outside of the south that accent will be extra hot.

You could not handle those photos...

(there's a fair bit of Swede in me too).

That is an accent I have to deliberately fake and it really does not have the same power as invoking the gaelic.

Darn...

A good Gaelic accent (especially an understandable Scottish accent) is very enticing.
