Just wanted to ask Maintankadin how accurate you guys think he did on some of the accents mainly the various British ones.

I was surprised he didn't do a Canadian or Mexican version.

Pretty well done, think the general american accent was a bit nasally, and the southern/redneck was a bit overexxagerated, can't comment too much on the accuracy of the specific british accents, but the rest seemed good to me.

The British accents are pretty close. Close enough that it sounds right anyway :)

I like the Southern Irish accent probably because that's the type I hear often whenever someone does an Irish accent.

The cockney British accent reminds me of Hot Fuzz

Very entertaining. The "generic american" one was close but ... seemed a bit more nasal sounding than I'm accustomed. Perhaps it's because I'm from California? :D Still, pretty damned impressive.

Also, amused at how much he curses, because .... it pretty much is in line with how we think of people talking. :)

Lightbeard:

I totally understand that you are going through this wrestling phase, and want to be all super hyped about wrestling. But, can you pretty please with sugar on top get rid of the seizure robot that is your current signature? I don't even care that the guy in the mask is moving, it is the totally over the top flashing and color changing that is going on when he does beat up the air in front of him.

Thanks,
Shoju

The old geezer.

AdBlockPlus is a nigh-mandatory add-on for Firefox, and will let you block that. If you use Opera, you can right click a page and select "block content", and then click the pics you want to block.

"Seizure robot" is an excellent description, though.

Is it blockable? Sure. Is Lightbeard a fucking monkey's ass nugget for keeping it, after repeated requests to change it, regardless of the block-ability of it?

Most definitely.

Thanks for the heads-up on Opera, though. Never knew that!

Yeah all 3 of them!

Just a heads-up I checked with Sab before I posted it as my signature.
