image for New Microphone for Gamers can Mimic Regional Accents

A new microphone for gamers is hitting the market that can change your accent. Now, someone from Ireland can mimic a Californian, and a Californian can sound just like a New Yorker. Yesterday I used it (I'm from Florida) to convince a group of Australians that I'm one of them.

It's genius.

There are settings on the microphone for about a hundred regional accents, ranging from Canadian singsong to diphthong Saigon. Cyber-sexers have a weakness for French accents, according to the manufacturer's website, while rappers like custom blends, such as "East Coast Compton," which is a combination of American East Coast/West Coast urban patois.

I tweaked the microphone until I had the perfect Louisiana Bayou/New Jersey wise guy sound to scare my mom with over the phone.

Make Patrick Ryan's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
