When I was a kid I went to the US with my Dad and people kept asking if we were from New Zealand.

When I went to the US as an adult (if I am one) people kept asking if we were English.

The question is - has my accent changed? Or the perecption of the average American?



In Japan when we said we were from Australia the response was "Oh! Ian Thorpe!"
In America we got "Crocodile Dundee country!" rolleyes.gif

Cheeky! tongue.gif

Seriously, we have had our accents pegged at all four corners of the globe.

When I attended the Spaced-Out get-together in Greenwich last year, I seem to recall that I was using my neutral accent.

It's a quote from "The Neutral People" in Futurama.
Both those lines I wrote are.
And this one too...

If I die, tell my wife....hello.

I remember that episode now! smile.gif

I just like to have a neutral accent for much of the time - the local accent from where I hail is just GHASTLY! ohmy.gif

In the "Family & Friends" featurette on Hot Fuzz, we have our neutral accents on, if I remember correctly.

Without having to think too hard, can someone just answer me which character is James Reaper? What does he do in the film? It's been a while since I've seen it and I'm terrible at names.

The farmer.

EDIT: The evil one. Not the heavily accented one.
