"No! I don't have a speech impediment, I'm English. English! Oh, for fuck's sake, okay. I know I talk funny. Everyone laugh. Ha ha ha ha...."

Karen's notes: We're spending the weekend with close friends from the States, so Adam is surrounded by Americans. Perhaps that explains the first one? Although we haven't ridiculed him for his silly accent yet.

  1. Those poor llamas. This is just so wrong. Who let the puffins near them in the first place? Thank goodness STM was there to deal with the problem.

  2. I'm not sure which is stranger: puffins attacking llamas, or the need for STM to clip their wings. Not quite sure who's in the wrong here.

  3. Are you saying we have silly accents? >:(

  4. I love an English accent.

  5. I'll take the English accent over an American accent any day. They have the original accent anyway; the Americans are the drifters.

  6. Those MEAN puffins! Bad Puffins! Leave them there Llamas alone! (lol).

    I don't think the accent is silly; some of the vocabulary is though ;-)

    Canadian (as is American) accents come with many different accents depending on where you're from, so classifying it all as one...now that's silly :-D

  7. goddamn puffins, always attacking larger animals just to prove they can. someone really needed to take them down a peg. so glad that stm was there to show them a thing or two. :)

    (and english accents are absolutely to die for; it's just a shame that stm is feeling so self-conscious. this uncharacteristic behaviour seems to be creeping in more and more often. . . . now everybody leave a comment telling stm how wonderful he is so he feels like captain of the boat again. :P )

  8. Bollocks - The American accent is super, vast and distinctive. I do like the queen's english a bit, OK too much Gordan Ramsey. Heck I probably have the Philly accent - yo guys.

  9. Oh my! I wouldn't say the English accent is silly, although it is kind of odd to hear it, especially in the States. Heck, I'm from Pittsburgh (and I speak Pittsburghese--seriously, look it up on the internet) and I'm currently living in New York City, and half the people here can't understand what I'm saying have the time!

  10. Now that the iguanas have had their tea, STM land is confronting a new problem: the puffin mafia vs. the llama clan... it seems that STM is siding with the llamas though....

  11. "This is Llama Turf"

    OMG I'm laughing so hard I'm scaring the children....

  12. I don't think STM needs his ego boosted. He does that perfectly well all on his own. And the English accent isn't silly at all. Bostonese, now THAT's silly.

  13. Dear Emily from Pittsburgh, I am also an Emily from Pittsburgh and got confused because I thought that I perhaps commented in my sleep (but it was you)...

  14. I believe British accent is more beautiful than American, and don't event think of going around bothering our dear STM, or Adam.

  15. Adam's accent is super sexy. I fell for it when I was 18 years old, and I find it just as hot now.

  16. @Victor - Not really. Both accents have drifted since the split during colonization. For instance, pronouncing r's at the end of words or after vowels is something the American side preserved, but fell our of most English accents. Regardless, I do love a good English accent :)

  17. I read somewhere that a American Southern accent is the closest to Victorian English. I don't know if that's true or not though. Anyway I wouldn't let it bother you too much Adam until STM adopts an American accent. That would be interesting to say the least.

  18. I can just see those little cute puffins attacking llamas.... okay not really but its funny...

    The first one cracked me up, Adam dont feel alone about the accent thing. I live in the Southern U.S. and everyone who encounters our accent automatically assumes that We're uneducated and dating our first cousin.... Heck I'd be thrilled if they just thought we had speech impediments haha :)

  19. My English friends and I (a Canadian) have had a running gag about "you talk funny and you drive on the wrong side of the road, too" for years. Don't tell them but I'd rather have the English accent anytime! As for which side of the road, well.....

  20. Gold. And I reckon the second one sounds like it was definetly inspired by Hunter S Thompson/Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It even reads like a HST paragraph. Would fit with the American influence anyway :-)

  21. Might the vicious puffins be related to the vampire penguins?

    Also, regarding accents: I generally speak with an American accent, but I can switch back and forth to a British accent (and the associated vocabulary). I do a bit of voiceover/narration work in my job, and I can't stand listening to myself speak with my American accent.

  22. Too funny! I've had people ask me where I'm from, they like my accent, but it is in fact a speech impediment! The looks on their faces when I tell them this is always hilarious :-)

  23. Theres no comment box for the august 28th mummumum thingy - sounds like he said - I suspect you're part of the mud people.. :)
    ( I'm English, we have codes) (hehe)

  24. My Southern accented son talks in his sleep; you can have conversations with him at times. The strange thing is that when he was traveling in Scotland, he talked in his sleep with a Scottish accent!

  25. A puffin attacking a llama would be a priceless thing to see.

  26. Mad, bloodthirsty puffins attacking the peaceful llamas? NOOOOO! This shall not stand! You clip their wings, and I'll kick their asses!

    Let the beaky bastard's fan tailed asses know steel-toed retribution!

    Courage my doe-eyed llama brethren! You shall not have bled in vain! Just don't do the spitting think, okay? Like really! No spitting!

  27. Haha, stoney got his iguana tea, now he needs a new cause to champion.

  28. Ah, accents. I have a Texan accent apparently. And my teacher has a California accent... but everyone on tv is from california anyway, so we Texan's can't tell the difference. I understand STM's annoyance. On a trip to Washington, at least one person a day asked of my family: "Are you all from Texas?" I was shocked. Everyone knows the correct word to use would have been "y'all." ^^
