A while back, there was a thread about "worst English accent" with Bostonians winning by a landslide. So here is an equally meaningful thread (completely meaningless). This was inspired by this thread and the story within: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=171620 So what is the most incomprehensible English accent? For Americans, I would have to say Minnesotan (Minnesotian?). My brother had a long distance girlfriend from there once. She would call and ask for my brother, but in a very quick, seemingly jumbled manner. I would then ask her, "what did you say?" And she would say the exact same thing again. Then I would ask her again, and she would say exactly the same again. Outside of my native US, I would have to go with Irish.
