I can tell this is made by an American but I can't quite put my finger on how.

same thing as with the skinhead thread. It's the writing style that we as Brits would never use -- I can even hear their atrocious attempts at a "British" accent as I read it.

I wonder if they're aware that he has already done something like this gag himself?

The yanks always botch our accents, because they're deaf to social class. They can't hear the difference between Charlie Brooker and Ray Winstone. To us, the most important thing your accent conveys is social class, but Americans are totally oblivious to it.

America has lower-class accents, but they're purely regional - if you have a Southern or Boston accent, you're common as muck, end of. We can pick up on the subtleties that make Roger McGough's scouse accent posh.

I think there are maybe a few subtleties you aren't picking up on yourself if you think the sociocultural associations of the accents of JFK and Joe Ligotti are equivalent.

There's absolutely such a thing as a posh southern accent, I don't know how you've missed that.

I think I have a vague idea of what you mean but can you post an example?

The head of the Statesmen in the second Kingsman film. The bald fat horrible man's dad with the ivory wig in Community.

I think this is a solid example. Blanche DuBois is the defacto well-to-do southern girl, contrasting nicely here with a more working class southerner.

Even Foghorn Leghorns accent is fairly middle class to my ears.

They're moneyed but not posh. There's a substantial stigma associated with that accent, as shown in the clip from Community - you might have money, but you're still just the inbred heir of a plantation owner.

The inbred heir of a plantation owner was the first US president who retains a reputation as the father of their nation, and foremost national hero.

You're blowing US regional prejudices way out of proportion. They're as nuanced as Britain's, you're just not as familiar with them.

All you're doing is showing that you don't understand the intricacies of the American class system, just as you claim Americans cannot fathom ours.

The US and UK class systems are almost identical, with the exception that the American one has always had an inbuilt belief that anyone can transcend their class.

As evidenced by the great gatsby- despite appearances the elites are still there; I suppose you might say we are a little more accepting of it (in some ways).
