I love doing it. It just cracks me up. Although works high ways, my hubby has become very English. He says mate after every other word!

I'm looking forward to calling women 'man' lol.

Ah dow d'that. Ah mek um waerk 'ard to understond wot a'hm sayin'.

What makes me laugh is my wife's attempts to imitate me. Since I've not heard a non-native Black Country English actor pull off the accent, (and no, Timothy Spall in Auf Wiedersehen Pet was terrible) I don't suppose I should be surprised by her efforts.
