English Accent

English Accent

I love
to make 
Fun
Of 
The
Brits'
Accent
Though
Some
Would
Say
My Southern 
Drawl
Is more
Amusing
Than
A Cockney
talking
Some
Wit

Maybe
It is
The facial
Expressions
They 
Make
When
They
speak

There
just
seems
To be alot
Of tiresome
Muscle movements 
Being
utilized

And

from an
outsider's
Perspective 
There
Appears
To
Be a lot
Of drama
Goin on
When 
They communicate

With all
this
Being
Said
I do love
You
Guys

Your
Beer especially,

But not so
Much
Your
MUSHY PEAS....

Ha ha ha! Love it... but not the mushy peas!!
The beauty of travelling is taking in the sounds of different accents.
We Australians just abbreviate everything and invent our own phrases bringing humorous attention to ourselves!!

I love Australian accents too but yours is difficult to mimic.  Thank you

Lol....I will have to pay more attention to people speaking with a British accent from now on to observe their faces and extra tiresome muscle movements in speaking their words...lol  I do love the sound though, I admit...It sounds so proper.  I love the Aussie accents too.  Lol  xo ;)

did you never try pease pudding, it's a Geordie combination of cooked dried peas and sometimes ham, eaten cold or on sandwiches..but you're right, with the facial attack, on the other hand I've noticed some Americans can speak without moving their lips much, must be something to do with the wind factor, they do that in Scotland which is why we cant understand a word of it...lol
