    If so, say these out loud:
    Purple burglar alarm.
    Irish wristwatch.
    If not, then say them aloud in a Scottish accent.
    I'm easily amused.

    ... or the old classic 'there's been a murder'.
    Yes, I am Scottish by the way!

  4. "There's been a murder"

    Get oot o' ma swamp

    and my pronunciation of words like "film" and "book" cracks them up!

    I thought my Scottish was improving by being part of the WSD v KC thread, but

    I once went to Aberdeen for an interview, this involved me getting a bus outside the train station and asking for my stop, I gathered there was a "poond" in the reply so I handed over two and recieved some change. I then asked if the driver would let me know when I got there as I'd never been before, he then said something in accent with a trace of english, possibly the only time a native english speaker has said something clearly audible to me that I have literally not understood a word of.
    I used to work with a bloke inevitably called Jimmy (from somewhere in Fife) who was similar, though the understanding was distance related. If he was within about 6 feet I could understand him, beyond that though I really didn't have a clue.
  16. I had to have a transaltion of the after match interview with Kenny Dalglish, yesterday....mind you I only caught every other word of Stevie G's interview.
  17. No doubt called you 'Neebs' and talked aboot his 'baffies'!

    My boys used to fall about at the way OH pronounces "Khaki" - admittedly it didn't often happen.
  19. I'm Aberdonian and work in Sheffield and LOVE confusing kids wi a bit o' Doric every now and then.....usually I say something like; "stop ficherin' aboot" or "fit ye on aboot".....
    Going back up north for a bit in the Summer and looking forward to it; my husband gets confused when I'm up there because I go back into broad Aberdonian (or Aberdeenish and he calls it!) and it takes me a week or two of being back in Sheffield to learn to "refine" it again.....
    Oh; haud yer wisht is another one I like!!!
    fit fit fur fit fit meaning what foot for what foot - ah I LOVE it!!!!!! [​IMG]
