So I walked into a this bar and heard two girls speaking in what sounded like a lovely Scottish accent. I said: So, are you two girls from Scotland?

One of them said: "Wales Idiot!"

So I said: "Oh, I am terribly sorry about that. So, are you two Whales from Scotland?"

That's the last thing I remember.


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

Lol

A lot of people say the Welsh accent is very different but I can perfectly understand Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta Jones when they speak. Oh, and we can’t forget about Richard Burton!! That guys voice just oozed gravitas.

“Antonio Banderas”, in English, is “Tony Flags”.

Reminds me of one of my favorite opera composers, Joe Green (aka Giuseppe Verdi).

The problem with doing an imitation Welsh accent is that it starts sounding more and more like a Pakistani accent by the end. (well that's what happens when I try a Welsh accent biggrin )

My sister-in-law is Welsh. When I first started visiting I kept asking her to pronounce all the road signs smile

I mean where do you start with names like Scleddau and Eglwyswrw? They just look like bad Scrabble hands confused

Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Alicatt cheers
