Who knew migraines could lead to a fob accent? A British woman apparently succumbed to a rare disease known as the Foreign Accent Syndrome after a particularly bad migraine. According to the AFP, FAS reportedly caused “brain damage” in Sarah Colwill, 35, which took away her West Country drawl and left her speaking like a Chinese. The woman has never been to China before. Colwill says the accent is “getting her down” and that she is starting to find it annoying.
“I moved to Plymouth when I was 18 months old so I have always spoken like a local. But following one attack, an ambulance crew arrived and they said I definitely sounded Chinese.”
Ok, I just watched the video of Colwill and I have concluded that it is very poor Chinese accent. They should rename the condition to Bad Foreign Accent Syndrome. If you want to know what a REAL fob accent sounds like, check out this Korean dude singing Mariah Carey’s “Touch My Body.”
