i find accents and strange pronounciations to be quite funny and cool.

a kiwi (new zealand) bloke at work was telling a joke, albiet a pretty ordinary one, anyway somewhere in the joke it involved the number 6.

at the end i said "yeah the joke was ok, but if you say sex instead of six a few more times ill probably start laughing"

and my yankee mates who use a heavy RRRR in some of their woRds. i pay em out "aarrrr its talk like a pirrrate day mateys"

and of course i cop a bit of stick back, even do a few cheesy aussie lines like "crikey cobbers!" just to take the piss some more..

aint nothin like talkin smack with your international mates about your quirky accents

This isn't really pronunciation but i hate it when people say "AN horrific"

it goes against everything i was ever taught about grammar, it was always "An is for words starting with the Vowels, (A,E,I,O,U) everything else has an 'A' in front of it" The news reporter ALWAYS says AN horrific accident...
