Question (from a friend): "Do Australians think American accents are as cute as Americans think Australian accents are?"
Answer: The answer after many years of gaining data is no. Sadly our American accent doesn't give an instant air of authority that a British accent does, a certifiable aura of cool that an Aussie accent brings, nor does it bring the disarming charm of an Irish accent.
Instead our accent sadly is one that is mocked in London tubes when people ask up to pronounce Leicester and we say "Lay-says-ter" causing random punters to giggle uncontrollably.
