That's all well and good, but being a sex fiend doesn't make me Irish. If anything, it makes me Scottish.
Or Welsh, depending on the species that you crave.

Seriously, WTF was that recording, Rey? Jesus. You sound like a member of the Real IRA who's trying to infiltrate London high society circles.
:lol: :lol: :lol: wtf

Anyway, what a load of boring sentences ffs. What about these...

1. I'm nobody I'm a tramp, a bum, a hobo I'm a boxcar and a jug of wine. And a straight razor ...if you get too close to me.

2. These children that come at you with knives--they are your children. You taught them. I didn't teach them. I just tried to help them stand up.

3. Do you feel blame? Are you mad? Uh, do you feel like wolf kabob Roth vantage? Gefrannis booj pooch boo jujube; bear-ramage. Jigiji geeji geeja geeble Google. Begep flagaggle vaggle veditch-waggle bagga?

4. Believe me, if I started murdering people, there'd be none of you left, because my children are coming. I told you 20 years ago.

5. I was so smart when I was a kid that I learned that I was dumb fast.

I would happily record myself saying the third one if it would make it into the thesis presentation.
Welsh "I hope you catch genital warts you slut!!!!"

Cars "I wouldn't do *anything*. I wouldn't rape someone or kill a bear."

Y'see, my sentences are designed to test linguistic realities; your sentences are designed to test patience.

You can go ahead and send him the recording if you wish. I reckon he'll have a higher regard for my accent than you did.
