I have an aunt who was born in NC, lived most of her life in Delaware and has always talked with a British accent. Lah-ti-dah!

All he said was that he'd never seen it, he ran tests, and most of his colleagues don't buy it.

Brilliant job of not committing.

For those of you who don't buy it, but who are nevertheless interested, perhaps you should read The Man Who Mistook his Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks.

I'm in as long as I don't have to eat the beans.

I have never understood eating beans with breakfast, but I do like the British version of bacon.

Lol, I am going to start building a shield against that British ray gun. A good portion of Americans love a British accent but I do not fall in that camp. Nothing personal but giving the choice of a British accent or going mute I would choose mute.
