Apologies if you've seen this but I think it's hysterical.

My strategy is so simple an idiot could have devised it!

MS new language version

They're from Newcastle and the surrounding areas of North East England.

They have a very strong, distinct accent that can be very hard to understand if you're not used to it.

I live in a city named New Castle, many here also have a strange accent that makes no sense to anyone else in the world. It's called Pittsburghese: http://www.pittsburghese.com/translator.shtml

Up there = uppair
Over there = ovadare
you = yinze
your (usually plural but not necessarily) = yinzes
you can/you may = yinza
are you? = yinza
Waiting for... = Waitin on...
