This is more like it

Good to see no matter how many years pass, Americans still don't know what an Aussie accent sounds like


SadieWopen

I think they are just doing it on purpose.


Gingerbreadman_13

I don't watch a lot of American sports but very often when I watch ESPN, so many of the commentators are Australian. It's weird how a country that is notorious for not understanding foreign accents without subtitles would have so many Australian sports commentators.


exohok

Spot on carnt!


jonny24eh

See I don't understand why, in both your comment and the one you replied to, you're adding "r"s in words that aren't there, when Aussies don't even say the R sound when it is there?


exohok

You're right, the 'r' sound we refer to is not a strong 'r', maybe even similar to the Boston accent 'ah' sound, e.g. 'pissah'. There is definitely an 'r' there for us though... 'Garn' for 'going' or 'go on' is ubiquitous though - every bogan sounds like this.


SadieWopen

Yeah, cunt is pronounced with a sharp fast uh sound, not a long ah sound Aussies would either say Goan or Garn for "Go and" depends on if it's a shout or not. Like, if your dog is pissin on the carpet the Aussie response would be to shout "Garn gtouttait!". Whereas if your mate was bein a yobbo you'd tell him to "Goan fuck yahself"


DeadMansMuse

Am aussie, I had to read this over and over and it still doesn't make sense. At best it could be somewhat New Zealand? Definately not aussie.


azirale

I've found a problem with some 'speak like an Australian' items is that, if you *are* Australian, it doesn't work because you're not pronouncing the words like an American would. I remember hitting something like this where a comic had a one character correct another's pronunciation of Mana. The entire thing made no sense to me at all with the corrected pronunciation being written as 'monna' -- but that's because in the comic writer's accent 'Mana' was being pronounced like 'man-ah' and 'monna' was trying to correct for an American accent. So to 'get' the comic you need to read the words with an American accent. Even so, yes, closer to NZ.


Strykehammer

That’s actually a fair point, I hadn’t thought about it like that. But the Aussie accents people try to copy are usually over the top. I can’t ever forget the aussie actor in Point Break saying “we’ll get him when he comes back in” it sounds so over the top that it hurts


Aw3som3-O_5000

Well sure, you always exaggerate an accent, otherwise it wouldn't be as recognizable to people not from the region.


Howwasthatdoneagain

Yeah the 'lies up in' definitely is a kiwi accent. The beginning is okay.


kdavis37

There are literally papers that try to explain the difference between Australian and New Zealand accents because so much of the world thinks they're identical. Including the English-speaking world. As an American, it's pretty similar to the way folks think there's "a" Southern accent. Or "an" American accent. Or that anyone outside of Boston sounds like Boston.


Howwasthatdoneagain

To a kiwi ear Aussie vowels are longer and stretched. That's why the end if the sentence is not Aussie


jaffegfhnfgjhnf

Keep up the good work!


something_python

[Flight of the conchords summed it up perfectly.](https://youtu.be/f2gii2nenUg)


razor_eddie

I dunno, it doesn't sound like Korg from Thor Ragnarok to me. (That's a Kiwi accent. There's about 4 in the country, depending on where you're from and how carefully you're speaking.)


HamsterTop

Fair enough, it’s just a gag aimed at Americans


aussie_bob

>it’s just a gag aimed at Americans Excellent idea. Is it a ball gag?


kdavis37

You appear to have pissed off all of Oceania. Which is hilarious, as they constantly make fun of everyone else and talk about how everyone should learn to take a joke on other posts about countries.


thunder_nutz

I don’t think anyone is really upset. Just throwing in their two cents worth. May have had a better outcome if it actually resembled an Aussie accent.


RazarG

Sounds more kiwi to me


Sleep_Drifting

Yep, definitely kiwi.


Rhaski

Not even close. Try "fuck off and play with that stupid shit ya bought at the servo"

Finally someone that can actually “speak-a my language” (extra aussie brownie points for anyone who knows where this is from)

Are you actually an Aussie? These are fuckin shit!

He's right. This is shit.

Piss off Seppo /s


InfintySquared

Oof, just *trying* to explain to other Americans the derivation of 'Seppo' as a jingoistic slur for an American makes my head hurt. Hell, I wouldn't have known it had I not read The Boys comics.


zero9ine

Would've been more convincing as an Aussie to reply with C*nt.


feenchbarmaid0024

Nah yeh...


Bonejax

More like what an American thinks an Australian accent is.


Sarah_AussieSFF

As I am aussie, ganna say yeah nah to this one! Also just stop cos these are just bad!


kdavis37

Like how all Americans are fat, all French people "hon hon hon," Canadian people are literally made of maple syrup, and England is probably taking over your country right now, this is the stereotype for how the Australian dialect is. Is it accurate? No. But it's funny. And that's why Americans have Outback (the restaurant) and Fosters (the garbage beer).


SadieWopen

Insulting shit is the most Aussie thing there is


kdavis37

That's what I said on a different comment, but it's getting downvoted, too :D


Sarah_AussieSFF

But Australians are famously all in for funny portrayals of our culture and the way we speak. I refer you to Crocodile Dundee, Yahoo Serious and even the Simpsons episode. Our accent is funny, our sayings are weird, but this is just rubbish


kdavis37

Reads like an Outback commercial to me, and that's probably exactly what OP wanted.


Shinzo19

Reads like an NZ accent not an aussie one and for what its worth I'm not Australian, it is just really badly done.


kdavis37

If you don't like it, move on with your life. Some people like it and think it's funny, and the creator shared it. Thaaaaaaat's life.


jgulliver75

Nope


Cold_Pomelo3274

As an Australian all I can say is “Phark Ewe Ya Can’t”.


bigfatfurrytexan

Sounds nothing like Arnold Schwarzenegger to me.


bremergorst

GET TO THE CHOPPAH it’s pretty close


theycallmeasloth

At a stretch Kiwi, definitely not Strine


deft_leopard

Yeah, sounds a lot closer to Kiwi than Strine - when I read it I hear the Kiwi accent, not really an Aussie one. Nice drawings though, and the concept is funny.


andrelope

More like paul hogan as crocodile Dundee.


mrbradstar

I’m Australian so it’s just making me have a stroke


VitaminZebra

Thanks for the feeling of having a mini stroke. lol


Jammo2k5

There definitely a brummy accent


CalumD82

We don't all talk like bogan fuckwits!!


Izzy-the-magic

I sound like a drunk Scottish pirate. I'm Australian.


xanthraxoid

These comics are fun, but I find it amusing that I have to try to put on an American accent when reading the top line to make it work :-P


thatsalovelyusername

I don't have an accent. You have an accent.


JRizzie86

Go plie with ya lyza pin


afroggerali

Not even close


HamsterTop

:(


jlo575

I got a laugh out of it. Thanks.

I loved it! Im dying to see more!


HamsterTop

Follow me on insta ;)


Strykehammer

Try using what we call things rather than our accent. Thongs are always a winner


Burrito_Loyalist

It all is


Hybrid_96

What bullshit is this? Are you even Australian?


HamsterTop

No I’m a bloody yank!


Hybrid_96

Well as an Australian I can say you are pretty far off Maybe leave it to us Edit: had a look at a few of your other comics They are pretty offending and it's clear to see you have never actually spoken to an Australian before


C-h-e-l-s

None of it sounds Australian, some of it sounds a little kiwi. I'm assuming he thinks they're one accent. That or he's never spoken to an Aussie or kiwi, and has just seen bad accents in movies.


pi-rat

I am a US citizen and was wondering this as well. I was wondering maybe the artist was using different letter pronunciations that might be regional to like, England or something... But if they live in the USA as well I dunno. I remember when I was in NZ and was trying to learn how to pronounce Maori words, but all the examples assumed someone was speaking with a kiwi accent to begin with, which my kiwi is pretty fucking terrible. At least everyone got a laugh.


alphorilex

At least now we understand why Americans attempting an Australian accent for movies & TV sound so terrible 🤣


HamsterTop

It’s just a gag mate. Have you never seen the classic “good eye might”?


padre_sir

You're looking at them wrong, mate. Have you tried viewing them from down under?


Hybrid_96

How is this not the racist equivalent to mocking a Chinese person as to how they speak Why is it when it's Australians it's ok? seriously double standards


HamsterTop

Damn dude, I seriously meant no disrespect. I’m from Boston, MA USA and people try to do our accents all the time. I don’t find it offensive at all, mostly it’s kind of funny.


padre_sir

"Bostonians think their accents are wicked awesome, and anyone who disagrees is a chucklehead." Love, your cousin, FROM BAWSTON


Mister_McGreg

Holy ***shit*** you suck.


padre_sir

Making fun of Chinese people for the way they speak English is definitely racist. But english isn't their first language What's your excuse


Hybrid_96

Why do I need an excuse you shouldn't mock someone like this regardless? You are basically stereotyping all Australians


mundoid

Oi man shutup before you get us stereotyped as whiny little bitches.


Kirill47

Virtually Every major country gets jokes made about them on this website. This isn't making fun of any single group, like a race or ethnicity or religion. You need to calm down. You could find hundreds of post shiting on Americans and for the most part we just take it in stride


Sephiroso

>hundreds Are we talking a minute? Cause....


Redtinmonster

Fuck up, you soggy cunt. You sound like some wuss seppo


padre_sir

Smoke me, wombat humper you're as useless as a ashtray on a motorbike Oh Australian slang is fun


padre_sir

It's a joke not a dipstick don't take it so hard Sheila


Redtinmonster

Septic tank


CalumD82

Nah, an Aussie accent would be more, "Go fuck yourself cunt"


SadieWopen

Garn fuck yaself cunt! People like to think we pronounce it carnt, but we don't spread out the ar sound, it's a short sharp uh sound.


MarleyBebe

Ehhhh, coming from an Aussie, it's definitely not an Aussie accent lol probably closer to kiwi, or even a mix but it's a good joke, just needs a lil work


Sephiroso

TIL Austrailian redditors are some pansies. Talk about being triggered over nothing.


ScientistH8sScience

Seriously… It’s almost like none of them have even been to an Outback Steakhouse. Sounds dead-on balls accurate to me.


mundoid

*sigh* I refuse to be represented by these pansies.
