Wasn't there a video of Patrick Stewart with a Yorkshire accent? Man, that is hard to understand.

Those Yorkists just can't admit that they lost. Let it go. There will never be another Plantagenet monarch of England.

It's something, but you'd be hard pressed to call it English.

Still better than whatever that is the people of Newcastle speak.

Is it really treason if it can't be understood?

How come in the UK, it's the South that are sophisticated and the North that are inbred rubes, but in the US it's the opposite??

You've got it wrong... in the north of England is where the hard working everyday people. Sensible and well-grounded live.

The south is full of sissy shandy drinkers who wear their wives knickers.

My guess is, it's the different hemisphere kinda like the direction of current. Or is it being further from the Ecuador?

[speculation hat on]
You'll notice that their South is still farther north than our North (Alaska excluded) -- back in the day when shipping was a lot more difficult and risky, those parts of our respective countries probably did more trade with each other, and with the rest of the world.  That advantage allowed them to have more contact with other cultures, and thus gain sophistication.

That's what I was thinking. To them, the Atlantic Ocean in is their west coast, but the pacific is on our west coast. That kinda thing.

But then in Europe the north/south divide is back to normal.

I propose we flip the british isles over to bring them in line.

From the article: "Isra Al-Modallal, a spokeswoman of the Hamas government in Gaza, prepares herself before heading to the office, at her house in Rafah refugee camp in the southern Gaza Strip November 10, 2013.

I can only guess this is mental preparation, since she is already dressed in the picture...

/Is that a CD in her hand?
//They have CD Players in Hamas?

Centuries of violent oppression of a 'race' of people.

Well, sure, she's "dressed", but not "woman working in 'political' office in an Islamic state" dressed. She has a few more layers to go.

Agreed, how scantily clad she is, especially for delivering CDs to her mirror.

That's all "wheat" beer, cloudy beer or beer you put fruit in. I agree btw. Take that fark Shandy brigade.

I hope that she has purchased some life insurance. Missiles tend to randomly fall on Hamasnicks much more often than on the general population.
