My wife watches BBC America a great deal (which I lovingly refer to as Boorish British Crap - No offense anyone... it's just my way of needling my wife and her British friend a bit), and I can't understand a darn thing they say.
Who REALLY has an accent anyway? Is it the English, the Australians, the Texans, New Yorkers, or Hollywood?

Now that we're on the subject of pronunciations, how come you Brits (I use that word with faint hope, crossed fingers and a certain amount of valor, having read the uproar following SEMPO's establishment of SEMPO UK which, having included the surrounding islands, resulted in explosions of indignation and offense(ce), with intensely and adamantly detailed instructions about what words to use for whom and when and in what location but only among whom which, to me, was SO CONFUSING that my best bet was to duck, lie low, and forget about it. Been confused about it ever since. I think "Brits" is right? Certainly "UKers" is inelegant, and unused.) ... anyway, with profusest apologies to anyone involved at any time ever:
How come the Brits speak with those wonderful drawn out A's ("Dahling, I just caaahn't") ... and yet, when it comes to similar "foreign" pronunciations, suddenly opt for something else? Witness this:

I'll duck as I say I can't differentiate the Southern States....
