    I used to have friend called George - it wasn't his real name, but everybody knew it was easier than saying Jerzy Unpronouncable - he was originally Polish, left over here by WWII.

    His command of English was better than mine (which is saying A LOT), but he always spoke with a zzzz accent. I asked him about it once - he said someone got upset in a cafe in 1957 because he couldn't tell he was talking to a foreigner, so George adopted a "furrin" accent.

    Yeh what, I used to work with a total $hit of an Ethiopian who couldn't understand why he was so successful with ladies in London. His accent sounded French - he couldn't speak French, but it "turned the ladies on"...
