Geordie Accents

It seems that a woman has woken up after having a stroke and her Geordie accent has been changed into a mixture of Jamaican, Slovakian and Canadian. (She's widely travelled, at any rate!)

It is important to note that Geordie is the only accent for swearing at referees or stupid players who get red cards or try to get their friends sent off. We know all too well the pain of 'forty years of hurt' - it's about that long since we won anything.

But having heard a number of attempts at Geordie, by those poor unfortunates who don't speak the language of heaven, and I now realise that they all suffer from medical complaints. This explains a lot ...

I thought Geordie accents *were* built up from a mixture of Jamaican, Slovakian and Canadian anyway. Ah well ... you learn something new every day.

And I always thought that the language of heaven was Finnish...

...because it takes an eternity to learn.
