The Geordie Accent – I’m A Geordie But Am Still British

Everyone in Geordieland must have read about the fact that Heaton lass & Geordie Icon Cheryl (formerly known as Cole) nee Tweedy ( aka: Cheryl Ann Fernandez-Versini) (aka: Cheryl) ( 😛 ) was “let go” from the American version of X Factor because American audiences could or would not be able to understand her Geordie accent.

made even more unpalatable by the fact that many more people block their ears whenever the person “who let her go” (simon cowell) opens his mouth

Even the rather posh but acclaimed linguist Stephen Fry is visibly confused/annoyed by the Geordie accent

However, a recent poll found the Geordie accent is the most trusted accent in the UK, so maybe we should never worry about people in the British Isles understanding us again and continue to use “one of the most trusted accents in the UK” loud and proud.

    A Geordie Joke to confuse those from the Midlands and other foreign places

    Geordie on the Weakest Link.

    Anne Robinson turns to him and says, “Name me a card game”

    Geordie has a quick think and says, “ICE HOCKEY”

    Anne looks confused and says, “Ice hockey isn’t a card game”

    The Geordie says back to her,

    “Well it’s the cardest game I kna of love”
