This has nothing to do with the story - but who cares?

Spiderman 3 and Transformers may have packed them in at the box-office but movie earnings fall way behind those of fake voices.

Spurred by the demands of Hollywood celebrities, fake accent sales have gone through the roof with prices ranging from $5 to $500,000.

"Madonna is a big spender", said Jimmy Jimjimwolawolah of fakecelebaccents.crap, "she buys from us all the time, usually Victorian British accents the kind nanny's used to speak."

"Mike Myers and Robin Williams are partial to a little fake Scottish, which they tend to overuse a bit too much for my liking. We have a host of Aussie actors such as the lead guy that was in The Guardian and the main guy from Nip Tuck - now they spend a lot on high grade US accents".

Celebrity attention such as this has encouraged regular citizens to splash their cash to the tune of almost 80 billion dollars.

"We had a woman from Michigan order a bunch of Romanian accents last week", said Jimmy, "but I'm guessing it was probably just Madonna again."

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