    Self-deprecation shouldn't be used outside of the UK anyway, it's too dangerous to those who doesn't know how to deal with it.

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Re: Accents

    I like a deep, firm voice on a man. If he is clear in his speech and his voice could melt butter... then I'm all over it. I didn't vote for that reason.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    Re: Accents

    I'm a scouser, I sound like John Lennon, the person not the airport.

    The word yes will do for me in any accent.
