As long as you're not ordering a cheese steak "wit" I don't think that anyone will have a problem.

Don't hate me, but in my opinion sometimes yank's accent is just plain obnoxious.

southern accents are hilarious but have that 'hardcore' sound, and are much easier to understand, and in my opinion, sound more intelligent than heavy british (EDITL and scottish) accents. Hard to believe but true.

Jersey, Phili, Boston accents = annoying as ****, and retarded sounding.

As as citizen and a US Marine I find it a bit offending that a Frenchman refers to us as "yanks". For the French I'd prefer saviors, or possibly liberators. Anyone else can call me a "yank".

The term yanks only applies to people of Northeastern states above Virginia.

You're definitely right about their accents. If I don't understand something I just rewind the interview. I usually find Noel easy to understand. It's Liam who's hard to understand sometimes, especially when he seems to be day-dreaming during the interview.

lol, i think you may have inadvertently proved his point about obnoxiousness.

anyway, no i dont find it hard to understand the US accent. But like you, I do have trouble understanding northern accents in the UK sometimes too, and im British!

Sorry Vikingx if I offend you with my post, actually that was not my aim. And as a matter of fact I live in France but I'm not French, I'm a mix between Brits, Spanish and Lebanese.

Manc accents are easy, I love the Lancashire/Yorkshire accents myself.

Hispanic Americans are sometimes hard to understand, and New York/Boston accents (although awesome) get me.

No offense taken bud... I've been looking for an excuse to use that Nazi joke for quite a few years now. Nothing person. I've been to France and had a great time.

You liberator comment reminded me of something. It's quite old, but have you ever typed in 'French military victories' into Google and hit 'I'm Feeling Lucky'?

You Europeans can't just go around calling every American you see a yank. In some parts of this country, calling people a yank or a yankee can get you shot.


EDIT^^ That is some funny shit.
