Quaint English accent
The Quaint English accent is a commonly used term, referring to the accent of English characters in episodes of Friends or in Hollywood movies that still don't sound like they come from anywhere near Britain Real English accents, like those from West Yorkshire, can't honestly be called "quaint". Many people who are English employ the use of this accent to attract unwitting members of the opposite sex, and more often, to confuse Americans. And, as many people know, confusing Americans is very enjoyable. Contrary to popular belief, neither Liz Windsor nor Albert Einstein was the inventor of this accent. In fact, four score, and seven years ago, the English accent was invented by Swiss architect, Mao Tse-Tung, in an attempt to communicate with his dog. Unfortunately, the dog was unable to understand what Mao was saying, but the English people did, and thus took up the "Quaint English Accent." It is the official accent of the religion Pieism.
