Yes, Panda. Yes you do. To give an idea of how attached I am to this site, I just got my inbox telling me: You Have 58 New Messages.

If I attempt a Scouse accent (typically "Caalm down! Caalm down! Eh, eh, eh!", I'm afraid), my voice always goes really high-pitched.

Conversely, if I do a Brummie or Black Country one, it goes all deep.

Well, I'm on the scousers side.

I know I've mentioned it somewhere else but, I was in Formby (Liverpool) a few weeks ago (on a job) and I expected it to be a right dump. It was, in fact, a very, very nice place indeed. I have now revised my views on stereotyping, especially scousers. :wink:

Oh Dave you not only look quite cute, but you're obviously highly intelligent too!! Of course Liverpool is a wonderful place. However, (I shouldn't be telling you this) Formby is one of our more classier establishments. If you were to venture to perhaps Croxteth, where our articulate well mannered Mr Rooney stems from, you may be looking through rather less rose tinted giggs. You will always get a warm and cheery welcome though whever you go (even if you do leave without your wallet!!!!)

Ha Ha that's what people say to me too!!
It's so true what you say, and have you noticed that we call it THE Asda. Where did the THE come from. People from further up North call it Asdas!!! Do they go to several in a day?! Also when the scallies are going to those lovely pubs with a wacky warehouse it's 'taking me kids to the Wakkky!' aaarrrgh!!!!

My gran says to the... as well. Like The co-operative, or the asda. I love my gran. She doesn't understand me unless I talk in a really thick lancashire accent!

Moving on slightly, I we were having a discussion at work about Polish people coming over here to work. One of the lads thought it was a bad idea because they couldn't speak English. I pointed out that they probably spoke better English than he does. His reply?

Under communism, all Polish kids had to learn English and Russian at school, from age 7 (at least according to a Polish pen-friend I had in my early teens.) They're likely to be a lot better at English than we are at Polish...
