it's forever amusing to me to see how much chicago and nyc have influenced one another, especially in accents.

We were playing Monty Python Fluxx the other day and I have to report the best Outrageous Accent of the game. We of course had people doing bad French Accents, bad Austrailian and we had a bad Yiddish one going pretty well... but here in Chicagoland, the one that put people on the floor was the Fake Southside Chicago Accent. (and it was fake - the guy grew up in California I think)
Think of the skits on Saturday Night Live when the guys were sitting around the table, drinkin' beer and talkin' about Da Bears. Da Bears and Ditka. Eatin' Sahssage and drinkin' Beeahr and watchin' Da Bearz. Or think: Dan Akroyd's Blues Brother's accent. We're on a mission from Gahd.
In the game we of course had Da Grail. Not Da Bearz but Da Grail. And Da Finga of Gahd which got rid of dat dere creeper here ya see and den goez bak in yer hand. Draw tree play two became draw fife play two discard da udder tree when one two fife is out.
What's the best Fake Accent you've had at your games?
