Undeniable Fact: Cheerio, then!

Wednesday, July 19, 2006

The so-called "English accent" did not actually exist before the American revolution. The accent was developed by the British in order to set themselves apart from the "impudent colonies". The plan backfired, however, when Australia, a British penal colony more hated by the Crown than
America, adopted the very same accent.

Ironically there are still a few isolated regions in Great Britain where the accent was not adopted. The denizens of these areas speak exactly like Nebraskans!

thats actually the exact oppisite of the truth- americans began talking differently from the british as a form of rebellion. This is actually how websters english dictionary came about- he wanted to make a "new language" seperate from the british.

Limey propaganda - after the war the Brits started taking on airs and speaking in that preposterous, affected manner.
