One of the funniest things I experienced in real life, I was caddying in a group with a Russian, a Swede, and an Irishman. The other caddie was Mexican; I was the only American Gringo there. The Swede and the Irishman were making fun of all the accents and trying different accents. Then the Russian goes, in a heavy Russian accent "Ev-ery ack scent in Russian ack scent sounds like Russian ack scent"

Pedro and I could not stop laughing; the golfers thought we were high. We might have been.

The following barrage of memes is for recon. And, if I'm honest,  me too.

A British friend once told me: "German is for discussing engineering, French is for discussing love and English is for ordering the servants around."

As far as accents go, I was sent for training in the lovely metropolis of Piqua, Ohio. I was there with two fellow Canadians, a guy from our Alberta shop and a guy from our competition in Quebec.

The Quebecer was every Quebec stereotype rolled into one. Short, heavy accent, spoke Joual, smoked like a chimney, etc. 

One evening at the bar, a fellow came up to us and started to say something. The guy from Alberta and myself couldn't understand him and thought he might be mentally challenged.

It turns out, the fellow had a very heavy Cajun accent and our Fench-Canadian colleague could understand him just fine because they both spoke the same awful version of French.

I bought a car once from a man who was Irish, but lived in backwoods Georgia for a long time.

 

The intersection of thick Georgia plus brogue was a sight to behold.  So to speak

And Irish is for profanities. I remember being at a stage rally and there was a team of Irish guys there. The only words you could understand through their accented English were the curse words, but the curse words made up 75% of the conversation, so you were okay.

So, what youre saying is, the dialogue from Boondock Saints was well written?

Hartzell Propeller.

I think it's the ONLY thing in Piqua.

Hartzell does make good stuff. I used to make a living fixing a lot of damaged Beech 1900 props.

We dealt with Hartzell, McCauley, Sensenich and Hamilton Standard stuff.

The GeeBee looks like it has a Hamilton Standard 2D30 propeller.

You know the old saw about why they were called 1900s, right?

It's because your pilot is 19 years old and has a hundred hours of flight time.
