Speaking as an American, I claim most Americans like most English accents. This includes Canadians as well (except for the Quebecois, who either suffer from, or add to, our dislike of the French). The challenge: add a sound clip to the comic, with #27's dialogue!

I concede most drive-in speaker microphones are built for durability, not clarity. Can't think of a "Limey" dialect which would be significantly harder to understand; Reg's attitude might be harder to take...

I once heard a rumor that most Australieans actually adore people with American accents. Sadly, I find myself having a hard time believing that; nobody likes my accent.

Being an American Southerner I have a bit of the trademark Southern twang to my voice. Not STEREOTYPICALLY rednecky sounding, but obvious enough that you'd automatically know where I came from :D

For the record I can understand UK accents just fine for the most part. I just can't imitate them worth a damn other than a very half-assed Cockney and a Jamaican-sounding Scottish. Which is kind of embarrassing because I AM partially Scottish in ancestry D:

Even though I was born in Georgia, I don't have a southern accent, thank God. I think it has something to do with my mom being born in Michigan. Which is why I sound like I'm from up north.

People sometimes ask if I'm from up north, and I have to tell them I'm not and explain everything up above. Pretty insane, huh?
