    Arrr! Guess you missed all the previous years it's been running then, so have been in a medically induced coma for over a decade.

    I live in Bristol, so every day is talk like a pirate day.

    Arr, this be the lowest point for MSE since they jumped on the WASPI bandwagon.

    It's about time we stood up and called out this cultural appropriation and association of Bristolian accents with criminality for what it is - racism.

    Would MSE promote a "Talk Like A Gangsta Day" where everyone has to wear blackface and go "Wah guan me bloodclots, you all best talk like bare idiots or we bust a cap in yo !!!"?

    It's just a bit of fun, and has been mentioned on the Forum most years for several years usually by forum members, not MSE staff

    Being from Devon I love it! Please do join in
