One of my closest friends is a transplant from the UK. Still has a heavy Londoner accent.We were in a WalMart last Fall when a lady asked us for some help choosing a product. As soon as he began talking she said "where are you from?".
He replied "Arkansas".
"No, your accent, where did it come from"
