Is there an accent that's more imitable than the British one? As an American, I'm sure that children equally mimic my accent all around the globe whenever they wish to embody a privileged "wanker." Regardless, my question remains the same; is there any accent as cool as the British accent. When I first became obsessed with Doctor Who, Peep Show, and British rock, I spent about a year trying to affect a passable British accent to fairly decent success. Hell, I once convinced a British girl that I was a fellow countryman until she started asking me about those pesky specifics. "You're from Essex," she said, "Me too! Whereabouts?"
"Oh, you know," I said, "near the school."
The sophisticated members of the audience are probably saying, "sure, the British accent is awesome, but which one do you mean? There are several." That's a fair observation. Since there are a ton to choose from, I want to highlight one of my favorite variants by way of Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys.
