    As a percentage of the population who can speak English. As such by default have an accent.
    The Dutch accent has got to be the worst accent in the world.

    Forget it, your choices were the logical ones, I was only trying to clarify the first two. But if everyone understands you mean BBC English and all other accents, that's fine.

    I dunno, but it makes my pants wet.

    I always thought Colin Farrel was hot as ****. Then one night I saw him on Leno and made a point to watch. He started talking and he ****ing IRISH! I didn't know this, since he never had an accent in any of the movies I'd seen. I thought I was going to keel over when I heard that accent. Had to go take a shower and some me time.

    i don't get it though, my ex would react similarly when i did a fake irish accent (which i'm pretty good at) and i'd laugh at her.
