And you thought that the recession, Advent, Christmas gifts, and winter weather was all you had on your plate.
Hah! You've forgotten Talk With A Fake British Accent Day. Coming your way on December 17 courtesy of Facebook and The Telegraph. (Blogger won't accept the article's url so just visit the Telegraph website and search for "fake British Accent".)
There's a gathering in New York but a memorably bad English accent is a thing of the spirit that transcends time and place. Even people with real British accents are welcome to participate. Follow in the footsteps of such immortal manglers of the Queens English as Austin Powers or Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins.
Or Mark Shea. Whose fake English accents have amused his family and friends for years.
Give your family and friends a truly memorable Advent gift this year. Aspire to greatness. How bad can you be?
