Can you fake any accents?

What are they? Have you ever used them to trick anyone?

  • If I hear an accent I can copy it, I don't know how good it is but I have fooled my sisters MIL, she called my sis and I answered and used an english accent and said my name was Sarah and she bought it, and then called back and I said it was Sarah again and she bought it, then called again and I was Sarah again and cursed her out and when she started to freak out at me I busted up laughing and told her it was me.
    I copy my friends accent from philly and she thinks its spot on

  • I don't try to trick anyone with them but yes, I can do accents. I can do various American and Canadian accents as well as British and eastern European.

  • I used to be able to do a British accent, but not so much anymore. My sister and I used to walk through the store talking in accents.

  • A little bit. Country and Russian are pretty easy for me. I used to mess with people in Junior High but that's about it.

  • I can only do it when I am repeating something from like a movie. My husband thinks its crazy how good I do. My only "trick" though is pretending to do Chinese. I can really make it sound like I am talking Chinese, but if a Chinese person EVER heard me, I'm sure they would either be pissed or make fun of me! Plus, that is the only accent I can fake (a Chinese person speaking English).

  • Sometimes when I am talking to my Mexican husband I speak English like he does with his charming accent..:)
    One time I watched a bunch of Mexican/American teenagers discuss me and my actions in a grocery store (I am 57 and had some questions about making out a check..) A Mexican check out girl yelled over to the girl who was near me in the next line wanting to know what I was complaining about...Before the Mexican American chick had a chance...I turned around to her and said in pretty darn good Spanish..".Ï want you to know I understand EVERYTHING you are saying..I am married to a Mexican and I was a bilingual teacher for nine years...She just nodded and as I went out the Mexican girl was just staring at WOW...I smiled at her and kept on walking...
    Am I bad? :)
    The next time I came in the girl I talked to glanced over at the guy I had been having the conversation with the last time...I avoided her like the plague...
