Totes agree Greg. Nothing's allowed to be funny any more. I laugh at crap Scottish accents, cos they're funny, I don't get all uptight.

Any accent can be done properly. It takes much practice. Most who intend to imitate will not go far enough.

There's a bit of talent involved too, it's not all learnable. Some people, for instance, have immense trouble even understanding an accent. I had an American friend and seeing any film with furriners in it with her was a nightmare. She'd be nudging me all the way through, saying, "What did he say?" And of course she was bad at imitating accents, too.

Whereas other people just have a natural ear for it.

I am terrrrrrrrrrrible at doing accents. It's one reason I didn't become an actor.

One of many reasons.

Because when you peel an orange, the spritz of the peel goes everywhere. No one wants to get spritzed upon so no one would sit near him.

You're allowed booze on the trains here, which is insane. As for Harman, he'd frighten the children.

Wow! I assume that means any open food (in other words, you can carry food in containers, such as taking groceries home from the store)?
