a theory from Australia
It starts when we are very young. with cartoons...the lovers, be they cats, skunks, what ever, always have French accents.

it could also have something to do with the grass always being greener.
I live near a backpacker's mecca in Oz. There is a hostel just near my parents house, usually booked out with surfers from all around the world.
Heaven...I'm in heaven.............
I recall dawn on christmas day. I was walking by with my cup of tea to go and watch the sunrise. A group of japanese surfers were putting their boards on the car and were bowing and saying "herro, herro" I thought I'd make these guys day and said
"g'day mate, she's a pearler of a mornin' eh?"
I like dailects......and accents.

you know that they're banning that french skunk (Pepe le Peu) from television? Something about being a bad example, degrading women, etc...

yeesh.

Cass - what does 'pearler' mean? (Btw- that totally would have made my day!)

Foreign accents are hot. So exotic...

I like British, Irish, Australian and Eastern European myself.

My crush has a foreign accent. (For all those following the soap opera in my journal)

Spanish, Asian and French accents don't really do it for me though.

Canadian can, but that might just be because I also like hockey players.

I agree with you all..accents just do something for me...and they do up the attractiveness...hehe All of my major crushes have had accents and one ex-BF of mine had a Brit accent that I just melted for, to bad he was an asshole!!!!!! My favorites are Irish, Scottish, English, Australian, Spanish, Cuban...hmmm any guy with one of those accents already has me thinking about them

Sweetest thong, a 'pearler' is describing something that for whatever reason is better than normal. Like a really great catch in a game of cricket, a fantastic sunrise can be a pearler of a sunrise, etc etc.
Our accents are crap. You people have all been misled.
