Helping out David Friedman

You should go here.

If you have any of the required accents then record the quotes and send them in.

Although there is a confusion there about the King James. Surely even Americans know that God is an Englishman?

  1. “Special thanks to Tim Worstall, who is the reason I no longer need any more English accents.”

    Would anyone from Bath like to comment…

  2. When I think of that Bath female accent (really, Twerton) the specific person I think of is the woman who used to serve at the chippie on Kingsmead Square. Very much surprised my wife when we first went in there together as I was addressed as “moi luverrr”. I had to explain that while, yes, I had worked with the woman a couple of decades before at the Wimpy (hmm, or maybe the Golden Egg?) no, we never had, it’s a usual term of address in the area.

    I did actually do a Twerton for a voiceover once. A friend was doing the soundtrack for a game and needed a pirate. Me and my Bathonian was the closest anyone in the area (probably the country at the time) could get.

    If that was true the earth would have opened up and swallowed the Church of England decades ago.

  4. And yet he sounds much more God-like in a Scottish accent. Oddly, if you did him in a cod-Jewish accent he’d sound just absurd.

  5. I’m sad that the Brizzle accent is almost extinct. I used to work with a chap who would ask me if he could add an item to the ‘agendal’. I can understand different parts of the country pronouncing bath with a long or short A, but how does an accent come to append an L to the end of words that normally finish with a vowel?

  6. I can’t speak to the nationality of God, but the fact that the English survive, despite driving rapidly on the wrong side of the road on twisty roads with high hedges blocking the view, is at least evidence of divine favor.

    Dunno – but one of my Pommie friends refers to a mutual friend named “Linda” as “Linder.” Linda being another Pom, she seems fine with it.
