The Accent


I have thought about this a lot and have come up with a statistic that has no scientific basis, I have done no focus groups, I am citing absolutely no studies, but I am sure it is so. (oh, and Dr. Jimmy agrees, if that helps)

Anyone who speaks English with an accent immediately becomes 40% better looking.

Think about it and let me know if you agree or disagree.

That’s all I’ve got.

    Only if they have a British accent — or possibly French.

    J. is very observant…..British and French are 40% better looking…Brooklyn, Yiddish(Oy!), Longuyland(Port Wash especially) might be a minus…………

  3. DR. J and J, of course British and French, and let’s not forget Italian.

    Dialects are not accents (LI, Brooklyn and the dreaded offender to intelligence, Southern)

    Now that we analyzing, German… not so much. Asian languages, probably not.

  4. Hi Amy,

    I would have agreed with you a couple of years ago about British accents, but with so many Brits on the air now, I’ve gotten used to it. Sometimes I don’t know if I’m watching ABC or the BBC.

    Spanish accents are different though. For instance, I think that Sofia Vergara of Modern Family is at least 80% more attractive. It’s got to be the accent.

  5. Everyone has an accent of some kind. You only notice an accent when it’s different from your own.
