Sexy accents ... and pogo sticks.

Hey guys, I hope your Thanksgiving went well! I cannot wait to read about it. It's Black Friday ... and the sales online are insane! Since yesterday was uneventful for me I thought I'd share an article that had me (and my friends) in stitches.

Recently, CNN ranked the Trinidadian accent (my accent) the 11th sexiest/hottest accent in the world (although it is #1 on the Facebook page where people vote). So I'm gonna go ahead and assume that my sexy got turned up a notch with the release of this list! Go CNN!


Anyway, I was listening to a morning radio show, which is how I came to find out in the first place, and they were laughing about CNN'S description of our accent. So you know I just had to check it out. Guys ... I kid you not, this is the description that the world renowned news source CNN gave of my accent:



"11. Trinidadian
Famous tongues: Nicki Minaj, Billy Ocean
For fetishists of oddball sexuality, the Caribbean island of Trinidad offers an undulating, melodic gumbo of pan-African, French, Spanish, Creole and Hindi dialects that, when adapted for English, can be sex on a pogo stick.
Sounds like: A rubber life raft bobbing on a sea of steel drums"

So. much. wrong.... or right? I can't stop laughing.

I literally cannot stop laughing ... 

First of all, I don't quite know what the frick frack they are trying to say. It's true that we do have a mixture of all those accents because of our history and the people who came to dwell here, but what do they mean "when adapted for English"  ... And can we talk about the "sex on a pogo stick" comment? #ded I have to say CNN ... that doesn't sound very comfortable or fun ... and how on earth does it describe an accent? And what does "a rubber life raft bobbing on a sea of steel drums" sound like?? No really .. please visualize a rubber life raft... now visualize it on a sea of steel drums. #WUT

I genuinely cannot stop laughing. Ill say this... I think the author of said article was a little intoxicated (and probably needs to get laid) because there were some other sexual gems written about other accents as well. I give you my favourite gems:

  • The Irish accent ranked #7 and the author described it as "Fluid and uplifting, it can swing from vulnerable to threatening over the course of a sentence, restoring your faith in the world again ... right before it stabs you with a broken bottle top."  #wut
  • The Argentine accent ranked #13 and dude says it sounds like "A tightly tuned guitar of G-strings strummed by a lamb shank" #Icannot
  • The Italian accent ranked #1 and it was described as "Insatiable, predatory and possessive, this is sex as a second language." .... again ... #wut

You guys just have to read this article.You are welcome for the laugh.


Now I'm off to go spend money online.... 

Its Black Friday!

  1. my family are island people (jamaica, martinique and trinidad) and i love listening to my trini cousin talk! :) what i loved most was when my friends would come over and when they saw my dad - a tiny little chinaman - they'd be floored when all that patois came out when he spoke. it never got old watching them freak out.
