Talk like an English Waif Day


Recommended Posts

Let's face it, 'Talk Like a Pirate Day' has kind of become old and tired.  So might I suggest something my friends and I came up with while working at Barnes & Noble, 'Talk Like an English Waif Day'.  Yes, this was heavily inspired by film versions of the works of Charles Dickens and Victor Hugo.  So let's try it out.  "Plez suh, 'ere's a chile wot ain't eaten tahday.  Spare ah penny suh?  Spare ah soo?  Ah, thankyee, suh, Gawd sees awl the good ye do!  Gawd bless us everyone!"   (Yeah, I've had a few beers and way too much time on my hands).

Haha, I forgot about My Fair Lady...what I think is referred to as a cockney accent.  And I'm not trying to poke fun at anyone's accent here, just how film adaptations give us these cute street kids who talk that way, often while picking a pocket or two.
