    yes, most islanders can sing beautifully, but if you ever hear a kiwi asking for fish and chips with dim sims and worchestershire sauce, it sounds either hilarious or ridiculous depending on the strength of the accent

    Says an Aussie! I like the Kiwi accent. I love the way they seem to have decided on their own set of vowels. I'd love to know how fish and chips became fush and chups, how yes became yis.

    Then again, how did the Aussies turn no into naaayiw? Early Kylie interviews illustrate this perfectly.

    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.
    I like 'em all, especially a Kerry accent and a deep, proddy Ulster accent a la Ian Paisley (without the hellfire, natch).

    I'm not suggesting that at all. You're right, they can't play cricket. Nine Tri-Nations to two seems to ring a bell, though.

    I digress. Just found a great example of my all-time favourite accent for speaking English. Enjoy....
