This is a question Lies that got out of control

Ever claimed you could speak a foreign language to impress friends, colleagues and/or get laid? Make a twat of yourself - and I couldn't possibly comment - saying you were the godson of the chairman of BP? Tell us how your porkies have caught up with you

(Thanks to augsav and Sandettie Light Vessel Automatic for the suggestions)

Are you able to tell the Australian accents apart?

That one's easy
Melbourne sounds OK, Brisbane Bogan is vile...

But I can certainly tell an American from an Australian, an Englishman from an Australian etc. Furthermore I have no doubt that if two very different Australian accents were demonstrated to me, I would immediately pick up on it.

I'm good with accents, me.

I can tell
east and west Australian apart, which I know is pretty limited, but still. I'm starting to be able to narrow down my recognition of American accents to states rather than compass points, which I'm pretty proud of :D

There's not really more then about 3 or 4
You've got city people - who speak in a much more eloquent manner, and then you have people from queensland, who say "ay?" at the end of every sentence. There's people from Adelaide - they're very refined thank you very much (though they sound posh). Then there's people like me, who live in the countryside, and have a broad, slow, twangy accent.

And there are your aussie accents in a nutshell.
