...and some people say we talk funny on this side of the pond.
Inhabitants of the British Isles are no longer allowed to make fun of Australian, Canadian or American accents or colloquialisms.
We're not? Mike, at the last count there were nearly 40 different dialects in a country not much bigger than the state of Florida. Go into any pub on a Friday night and listen to the politically-incorrect jokes. You'll be in stitches.
As for making fun of American accents, my grandson does an impression of Forrest Gump that is so good he could be mistaken for the Tom Hanks character anytime.
