...'blood flowing from our uteri(sp?) like a crimson tide' Love that line. When sh farts at the end and asks if he knew that they did that too was also funny.

Saw this a while back. Thanks for bringing it up again. I loved it.

It's from OCTOBER of last year. How is that an oldie?


I have to think that the "richard" post (which I read) was all part of a marketing scheme to begin with. But I don't care, I (like too many 'mericans) am a sucker for a British accent. When it's uttered by an attractive woman, that's the icing on the cake.

Accents don't do it for me. I find that women especially like it.

I understand that the UK version of the Mercedes COMAND sat/nav has the "Miss Moneypenny" accent for verbal directions. You have to feel sorry for the Mercedes drivers in Turkey . . . where the voice talent is male, apparently due to some sexism about women providing directions.

Yeah, true that. Some companies out here actually PREFER to have a receptionist with that accent, as it gives the illusion that the business is more "high class" than it is....

*BUT* there are British accents...and British accents!

Cockney = "Naff"


Etonian = best of the best
