It's times like this that I'm relieved to be an Ohioan, from the land of no accents. Specifically, too far south to have the Lake Erie accent, and too far north to have the Cincitucky.

My wife used to work with someone from Barrie who had the "stereotypical" Canadian accent. It wasn't "aboot" or "aboat", which is of course a mangling of the standard as done by a bunch of people who think that South Park is gospel.

There's nothing more annoying than someone with a New York accent.

I used to hate British accents, but Barney's ex-girlfriend, Nora, from How I Met Your Mother had a sexy accent.

Dislike Southern accents. Cant stand Paula Deen.

NY rocks. They take the 'R'... put it on a plane at LaGuardia... fly it over Ohio... and drop it off in their warsh.

I'm generally not a fan of British accents either... but i do think that Liz Hurley has the sexiest accent ever.
