When you read the posts in here, do you read them, in your own mind with an accent approximately appropriate to the region?

Or not?

I'll not poll it. I'm far too lazy for that sort of responsibility.
I'll just count.

I might read in an accent if people posted like this:

In Seine: "Meesa gonna write good boom boom story."

J.B.: "When thou takest thy pen in thine hand to create thy masterpiece, findest thou first the humor in thine idea."

Me: "All ya'll wanna git on over here 'n read this funny stuff I wrote? It's finer 'n frog hairs."

Henman: "Oogly boobly Nigeria oomba bomba lions boogly."

QM: "It is inevitable that I lead the race for Mister Lowton's allegedly insignificant points, being the most highly educated (due to my many years of matriculation in the finest universities on both sides of the ocean) and most philanthropic person of the female gender to grace this illustriousl website."

Fergus: "Gimme a pint, mate, and I'll read yer ****."

Who the Hell is Mohit: "ah, yes, this is berry berry good. Berry berry nice. Would you like cheap room at my fine budget hotel?"

Pop Princess 696969: "Hoo wantz to tawk to meee???cuz im yung andstupid and wanna hump barneyand ponies and most guys inn the backset"

King David: "Hey, class, only one person can speak at a time....put down that eraser....listen to me...I don't want to have to call your parents or the principal...there will be no insulting your fellow writers...do you really want detention?"

Buck: "Eat me, asshole. I'm a bigger perv than you."

Nick: "Don't forget me! Don't forget me! Are than any naked Asian women around here? You wanna ficky ficky rich American writer? Buy you much expensive rice!"

Sophie: "Where's Daniel? Does he wanna do me yet?"

Shaun Ferguson: "Can I get hairy palms for ****ing off to much to Carina's picture?"

If everyone talked like that all of the time, I would put accents to their words when I read them. Otherwise, I just read them normally.

Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

I give all the men husky Bass baritone voices and all the women squeaky sopranos.
And as the day progresses the voices become more slurred and tinny.
I also add sound effects of wind and traffic.

I make up accents for people - like I do my wife's cats.

However the only accent/voice I imagine is Mark Lowton's - I imagine it as a 'posh Northern accent' - mainly because he is situated about 2 miles from my Mum's house and I guess he sounds like me a little - but posher.

Here's another thought - any deaf people on the site?

If so I will say it again ANY DEAF PEOPLE ON THE SITE?

Also, here is a condurum for you, if a gay man or woman lost their memory would they remember that they were gay?

In the same vain, if a depressed person lost their memory would they remember that they were depressed?

Any depressed or gay people or deaf people like to comment?

I think Tragic Rabbit would sound like Rhett Butler.

Carin Eta - Scarlett O'Hara

Buckswheatbutt - The woman from Tom and Jerry who shouts 'Thomas' and chase Jerry with a broom.

A little backgournd before I get to the point:

One of our Assistant Managers at work is dealing with memory loss in her family.

Last week, her son (about 17) had a seizure. He had not history of seizures and there was no evidence of any drugs in his system.

Anyway, he was unconscious and not breathing for several minutes before anyone found him (no oxygen to the brain).

He has since had several other seizures in the hospital.

Here's the problem: he has total memory loss of anything preceeding the first siezure. He can converse in English and do simple math, but has zero memory of any facts relating to anything. He does not know any people.

He knows that he has a mother, but knows nothing about her and does not remember her. He calls the nice lady who comes and visits him all of the time "Vanessa," but does not realize that this is his mother.

I find it interesting that he can remember how to speak, read, and write, but cannot remember the name of the President, anything about his favorite teams, or any general information.

The point of all of this is: he was a little hoodlum before his siezures and he has nothing of that personality right now. He is very kind and polite to everyone. I hope that answers Duncan's question on memory loss.

I think that some of the writers on here do give an impression of dialect....

J-Man........Booming voice tinged with a western syntax. Sorta sounds like the actor, Wilfred Brimley with a case of hemmorhoids from riding his horse while in a wet diaper.

In Seine.....The voice from Gecko-lizard creature that pitches sheety insurance on TV. Yeah, an Aussie with a broom handle up his butt!

Carina-eta...Ever see the movie Roger Rabbit? Carina most certainly must sound like Jessica Rabbit! Or is it Jessica Beal? I forget! Nahhhhh, Jessica Beal is sexy!

Jesus Budda...A cross between a baritone fart and an albatross squealing from muscle cramps!

Duncan Whitehead...Member 'Hoss Cartwright' on the TV series Ponderosa? Not him, more like the little 85lb tramp protesting 350lbs of cowboy man-meat attempting to mount her behind the livery stable for an afternoon delight.

QM...Falsetto voice similar to Dame Edna!

NickFun...Has to sound like Jerry Seinfeld! Or is it Neuman? I get them mixed up.

Mark Lowton...I just imagine he'd sound like Marty Feldman..Got a feeling he just might look like him too!

Pop Princess...If a roasted weenie could have a voice thats it!

Very very interesting.

Wouldn't it make a great story or movie or play, some guy loses his memory and suddenly becomes straight over night!

Or totally becomes a nicer person(not that gays are not nice) - then, gets his memory back and reverts back?

Carina,

The Harrison Ford film was Regarding Henry!

I haven't seen it - does he get his memory back and turn gay again?

I like Harrison Ford, he's made a fortune out of looking confused and worried.The odd time he gets to laugh but then something really bad happens and then its back to confused and worried looking.

I do a great impersonation of Harrison Ford.







And Eddy Murphy.

The last time it was Crimewatch but it was all sorted in the end.

Has she started niggling at you yet?
"Mark! Get off the computer . You know Mark some times I think you love that computer more than you love me."

Have you had to answer that one yet? Think carefully before you answer that one.

They dont forget. Anything!

If you need any more of my sage like lessons in "Love and how to survive it." You only have to ask.

Fergus.
