That seemed like a rather large amount of effort for a pretty small payoff.

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. Also the shirt of you is lame LAUGHTER OL to the guy with the shell necklace!

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.

MadAzza: HailRobonia: justanotherfarkinfarker: What a stupid dick. A better move is to pretend you don't know Spanish and take classes in it. I knew a kid who did that. Good filler A for the GPA and credits.

When I took Japanese I didn't tell my classmates I already spoke Chinese. When we got to kanji, I said "wow, these are easy, you guys must be slow!"

Ooh, so close! "Chinese" isn't a language.

/studied Mandarin

Oh you. Mandarins don't speak. They are oranges.

vudukungfu: It amazes me how crappy Mexicans speak the Spanish language.
I gues I should expect it, after hearing all the ways Americans destroy English.

Maybe you don't realize that the "Mexicans" you meet in the US are either born and taught in the US or are agricultural workers without education. At least they don't speak as if they were sucking un blanquillo as do the trashy Spaniards.

Of course, spending your time getting handies from some Cuban transsexual probably interferes with your thought process.

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.

guy i knew back years ago, could do a flawless ulster irish accent. in all seriousness, it was jarringly perfect. he could do it all day long too.

what made it disconcerting is that he was black.

/that accent was like an unlimited rides ticket on the train to poon-town for him.
