    Needless to say, my native, rounded Yorkshire burr is sexiest of all.

    gotta feel sorry for the kiwis though, i dont think anyone finds that accent attractive
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven

    I like it. I had a co-worker who is Maori, and one of my fondest memories of him is hearing him sing karaoke to "I'm a Cowboy" by Bon Jovi. Heh. He was REALLY, REALLY good.

    Re: Accents

    11 People picked the Irish accent...

    Which one?

    Liam Neeson (Ras Al Ghul Batman Begins)
    Pierce Brosnan?
    Gabriel Byrne (Usual suspects etc.)
    Colin Farrell?
    Colin Meaney (Cheif O'Brien Star Trek) and his Dublin accent (mine too)

    Or that darn Lepruchaun in the Lucky Charms add whos accent seems to come from somewhere between west cork and Jupiter.

    For such a small geographical area its got quite a few.
