I laughed & laughed! I am of Scottish descent & I could never understand a word my grandfather said.

My husband went to university there. He and now we have many Scottish friends. There are a couple of them that I simply cannot understand!
This one cracks me up every time. Who doesn’t need a good laugh at the expense of our Scottish kin?
I know — it is just so funny. We had lunch today with an executive of a big company who was talking about his company’s efforts at voice recognition. He has an accent and we were discussing the challenges. As soon as we got home we forwarded him a link to this video!
I was sent this video last year from a friend in Scotland. Shame on me, I didn’t realize that was what Scottish accents really sounded like, I was expecting Groundskeeper Willie from The Simpsons’ type instead.
For what it’s worth, I told Scottish friend that and they laughed. They also tolerate my “So I Married an Ax Murderer” quotes whenever we talk online. 😀
You married one? I am descended from ax murderers! At least that’s what I decided based on the fact that none of my ancestors would talk about “the home country.” What were they hiding if not their Lizzie Borden past?
You shared this before, didn’t you? Though, it is worth multiple viewings!
Yes. You caught me!
So funny. Thanks for the lift!
You’re welcome; thanks for the pun!
You’re welcome! I tried, but I couldn’t resist.
That was brilliant. Thank you for sharing it!!
Sure thing. Gotta love voice recognition!
Very funny. It reminds me of how I much I curse, rant, and holler when talking to voice-automated phone systems.
Yes! I think I start out louder than I would shout at anyone! Welcome!
Every time I see that I laugh down the inside of my leg, sometimes twice.
Sorry for the extra laundry, Val. 😉
It is worth it.
Suck my wally… that was priceless. Those charming Scots.
You gotta love a Scot. Or being English, YOU don’t have to.
Did you know it’s still legal in the town of York, to shoot a Scot with a bow and arrow?
Whaaaat….. I’m going to England this summer, I may have to go up there and do some huntin.
Aim carefully. But check the law first. If I remember correctly (from 15 years ago) the Scot must be within the city walls.
That is hysterical. Thanks for sharing!
Hilarious. I needed a good up-lifting laugh today.
I think I’d be kicking some elevator ass!
thanks for the laugh!
Happy to oblige!
A classic! … and the perfect post for 11Nov!
I’ve seen this before and it’s just as funny every time I see it! 🙂 Accents, don’t you just love ’em!
Yes I do!
I love this!
I do to, Naomi. Glad to share!
Very funny clip! I sometimes feel like that when I’m trying to get help with something via my phone and the service’s voice activation doesn’t recognize what I say. Grrr.
Yes, exactly! Siri must beFrench.
Yes, that clip is, indeed, hilarious.
Glad you liked it!
funny stuff 🙂
These guys really are!
Thanks! I’ve posted it before but, well, it IS hilarious!
I work for an international company and was thinking of posting it on my company’s intranet as an example of cultural insensitivity, but it would have to be rated G.
You may just have to spread the word by another mechanism!
I think you just did and I’m so glad.
