Did I ever tell you about the man who taught his asshole to talk? His whole abdomen would move up and down you dig farting out the words. It was unlike anything I ever heard.

This ass talk had sort of a gut frequency. It hit you right down there like you gotta go. You know when the old colon gives you the elbow and it feels sorta cold inside, and you know all you have to do is turn loose? Well this talking hit you right down there, a bubbly, thick stagnant sound, a sound you could smell.

It is not understood by me why anyone would make the choice of doing such the thing of faking the way in which the speaking is done by them. Why would you do this it is just something which seems like the wasting away of the times just be the self of you and not try to do the being of another individual which is not you. I just cannot endorse the behavior of this individual and find it to be quite the inappropriate thing and I am hoping that he has the bad feeling of this and also by the looks of this individual it is necessary for the thyroid checking.

It will be the funniest thing EVER.

So this guy was at his local community college, taking a Speech 101 class and, since he's a stand-up comedian or something and already feels comfortable with presentations, decided to blow off the class by talking in an accent the whole time and giving his speeches about stereotypically Mexican or obscure topics (piñatas, David Hasselhoff, and the history of 5 de Mayo). Now if he was trying to earn an Associate's degree and had to get through this course as a prerequisite, I can forgive some of the antics here. I took Speech 101 in community college too and also felt I didn't need it, nor did I improve my presentation skills from it, but I wasn't bored enough to make things up. Now, if he took the class just to "prank" a class, I would feel bad for him. However, it seems to have worked. Clearly getting a few thousand YouTube views and a bunch of fans for his Facebook page means it was totally worth it for him - and rather it makes me feel bad for our society, but that's nothing new.

ABQGOD: At least it wasn't some douche-y sociological experiment to show how racist his classmates were for believing the accent.


Why wouldn't/shouldn't they believe it? I mean, if somebody has an accent, they have an accent. That's not so uncommon.

Far more absurdly bigoted to assume somebody with an accent is putting on airs for some reason, because it doesn't fit in with your views of how people should talk.

Nice. A few of us in class approached each speech as how we could out-ridiculous one another. I remember giving a persuasive speech as to why The Dukes of Hazzard was the best tv show ever. While it's always been easy for me to give speeches/presentations in class settings, I did feel bad for those who had a hard time with it.

steve 'thrill' hill on KISW up here is like that. every couple months they get a caller to the men's room that chew him up and down for saying ni*bong*, saying 'oh you wouldn't say that to a black person on the street!' and he's like 'i do all the time! i'm black!' but his accent is so radio-neutral that you could never tell just by that. most of the time.

I can pull off four "No Hablas".
I have two versions from Merry Auld England, since one is mere mispronunciation loaded with argot, and the other would be Her Majesty The Queen's English, they count as but 1.
I can do Mexican Spanish from the north and the south.
I can do French, including "where at from him he come?" or Cajun.
I can do Tough-Guy New Jersey(most exits), and I can do Smart Ass Guy from Brooklyn, but those don't count being domestic.
I can do a very credible Nihonjin.
I can also do Batty Boop, or sing in Basso Profundo or Hillbilly twang, and do both Peaches and Herb.
And a cast of thousands.

See?

Gotta keep a constant watch on em, if you can find any...they had em when I was a kid, but since they are teh ghey they don't fertilize little 'Quat" blossoms, perhaps abusing their stamens in various and sundry ways.
Film at 11?
