    There was that time I was chatting to a couple of girls in a club and pretending to be Australian.

    "So are you really Aussie, or are you just some twat putting on an Aussie accent?"

    "Um, I'll get me coat..."

    Just out of interest (as an Australian), are girls in your neck of the woods impressed with
    Australian accents? Or does it have to be the Steve Urwin (Crocodile Hunter) "by CRIKEY, that was a
    big one" type of accent?

    Cheers,

    Tim (who has never said "crikey" in real conversation)

    Well American girls seem to fancy Australian accents from what I've witnessed on several occasions.
    I'm Australian but have grown up in the USA. My accent is primarily American. Last time I was in
    Australia I heard several times how cool my accent was (from girls).

    I think it's sort of a "grass is greener" kind of phenomenon.

    Heh..that's kinda surprising. Often when Australians or British folks imitate an American accent, it
    comes out all whiney and nasaly (if that's word). I always assumed we sounded terrible to them. :)

    That's funny, when Americans try to imitate Aussie accent, it often sounds like a poor English
    accent to me.

    Funny thing was, as a fit tall bloke asking for vegetarian food for the lunch spread from the
    receptionist in our Chicago office, with the accent and all she thought I was from California (I
    guess they're not used to non-cow eating people up there!)
