So is this Madonna's excuse?

Somewhere there is a video of my friends and I talking in an accent very similar to that lady's... illicit substances may have been involved.

I'm not sure my HMO would even cover me for this disease.

it's also known as "madonnaitis" and "gwyneth paltrosis," but if the disease progresses that far, treatment options are severely limited. symptoms include delusional arrogance and may lead to the loss of talent in previously successful british spouses.

I have heard about this, recently in fact. I, too, would like to call bullshit on this.

I'd say that it's a slow news cycle, but that's really kind of a dirty dirty lie, so I suppose all that's left is the fact that ABC is gullible.

I know a guy who went to Australia for two years and came back with an Aussie accent. Ten years later and he's still speaking with it. Personally, I think he's working at it. After all, if you're influenced easily enough to pick it up in two years, aren't you influenced enough to lose it in two?

I had a friend who was in a car accident and had a serious head injury. She came out of the coma and was speaking with an american accent (she is from New Zealand). I was studying psychology at the time and looked it up - apparently it tends to be an american accent as the vowel sounds, etc are easier to pronounce, and so a damaged brain kind of 'slides' into pronouncing things that way. So it does happen!

I hope this happens to me...I want a Puerto Rican accent like my friend has. I keep hoping that if I hang around her long enough it will take. Like the summer I ran around with a girl from Boston and I started saying things like "Pahk the cah"

Anon # 3, I think, wrote that BRAIN DAMAGED people sound American! Bahahahaha!

This poor, poor woman. Her husband must beat her repeatedly (for being such a tool that she reported her "disorder" to a news crew!).
