My wife and I were this evening watching a British movie, The Orgasm Diaries, one with about 75% of it full nudity, and in a couple scenes neither my wife nor I could understand a word that the characters said, yet they were talking British English.<quoted text>
Hey, I thought we in England spoke nicer English! You american and canadian people are just jealous of the sexy british accent!!
Actually I am impressed by a lot of the British accents too, as some of them sound very dignified. It tends, for me at least, to make one think the person is more intelligent than they might be. We had friends around our age when we first moved from the farm, and maintained some contact until my wife and I split in 2000, who had come to Canada from England after they married, and though I think both my wife and I were better educated than either, at least he was rather intimidating because his manner of speaking and his accent kind of carried an air of authority about it.
