Regional and rural is fine -- it's sounds quaint and traditional, and makes us wax nostalgic about simpler, happier times. Should anyone get too Ma and Pa Kettle on our ass, we just take 'em out back and put 'em out of our misery. [xD] If we really wanted a chortle at someone's expense, we might ask an itinerant Japanese fisherman to say something like "Seth lüv tfívzhörzh." after a couple shots of mnöigastibs. セッス リュウヴ ツフィヴジュウルジュ ? Why, that could keep us in stitches for hours. [}:D]

Hmm, let's see what a Sōkoan would make of that sentence...

Seth lüv tfívzhörzh
Sēiþ reuvı tifīvižōrıžı
['seɪːθ ɾɯːβɯ tɪɸiːβɪʐɔːɾɯʐɯ]

I'm sure the Géarthçins would get a chuckle or two out of that one as well... [;)]

OTOH, the Sōkoans find Japanese easy to learn. [:D]

After a couple of shots of mnöigastibs, one chuckles at pretty much anything. [xP]

Sticking my fingers in my ears and going, "blah, blah, blah, blah, blah!" to get "Einzige" out of my mind. How about:
