    World's best/coolest accent

    What's your favourite accent to listen to? Or have a larf at?

    And, are there any accents you find impossible to understand, even if it's in English?

    South African or Zimbabwean accents imo. Love them wish i had one. I generally find the Chinese & Indian accents the hardest to understand (speaking from experiences at uni only)

    Trinidadian or English. But not Northern.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Hmmm, I like a few: South African (haven't worked out which regional one it is I like best, yet), southern Irish & Welsh (south only, though - North Wales accents are dreadful )

    COME ON YOU BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, no. But I thought I'd specify that I found it hard when they speak English. That said, it has to be particularily strong for me to have trouble.

    Neither can I. Although, apparently all they say is 'Sucky, Sucky $5' or Mao!
