I thought Americans thought of British men as effete and gay sounding….
Well I am simply faaaaaaabulous darling! Unfortunately not all of my peers sound quite so charming and well mannered. In fact I was confronted by a young lady only the other week who simply asked in her peasant tone “buy me some fags wud'cha?” to which I replied “certainly not you filthy young vagrant, good day!”. Marvelous fun it was, mhm yes, quite.
I've always enjoyed the Scottish accent, think it's kinda cool. Hottest accent, despite the mockery of the nation, has to be French. With the right voice speaking French, damn. As for the American accent, I'm honestly not keen on it. It often seems to seap out arrogance, or just a general annoyingness. Of course thats generally thanks to the kids you speak to on Xbox live or the girls you see in programs like My Sweet 16, Next, Date my Mom and all the trashy over dramatic American programs like The OC or 90210. I know all of America isn't like that, but damn those shows are hard to stomach.
But really, everyone loves a different accent that differs from the normality of those around them.
