Since most of us are from around the world, I thought I would have a vote to see which of our country's have the "superior" accent

Canadian: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bW9cect-GHc&feature=related

New York (Language!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stw8CnbaluA&feature=related

English: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTndCDkZuW0&videos=SVW5xiSDupQ&playnext_from=TL&playnext=1

Australian (SHES BOILING HOTT!!!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ly6ChP_JDXY

Haha Family Guy whenever taking the mick out of British, it always uses that stereotypical view :lol: I'm English but luckily I was given a normal voice no posh, northern or slurred accent otherwise I'd rip my own tongue out :mad2:

Hmmm... Hard to say. So many dialects of sub-classes and sub-cultures.

Clearly pronounced is most important. The rest is bias.

I would vote Australian, as it is the closest country on that list to New Zealand. But we both sound completely different! Oh well, theres no way NZ could win. There are only a few of us on this forum :)

Germany? Interesting, hehe. Well, it is a very nice country, one which I plan to visit someday... but yes, its probably safe to say that in my current location I couldn't be further away from Germany! :p :lol:
