My boss, born Tennessean, is a nice guy with a thick accent. Like many contractors that work overseas he's been to Thailand. He found love one vacation and returned to nurture it. Marrying a native Thai speaker has it's difficulties. He's picked up an Isaan Thai book to learn what he can and I feel there's a nobility to that. To attempt alien sounds in the hopes of a better understanding, a stronger bond.
But Thai spoken with a Appalachian accent is the funniest fucking thing I've ever heard.
