LinkUp: Sexy Accents

The results are in from Friday's challenge!!!
...and it looks like Buddy will be buying me a yummy lunch.  Hellooo veggie burger...
I won, I won, I won!!  

My picks were:  Gerard Butler, Chris Hemsworth, and The Rock
Buddy's picks were:  Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, and Mel Gibson
Like you all couldn't have guessed... 

The winner by the skin of his teeth is Gerard Butler.
Looks like you all got a GREAT idea of what "manly" is!  Knew I could count on my followers!

************************************************

About a month ago, I made a fun post about Sexy Accents.
I listed my top 8 favorite accents and you all commented on which ones made you guys swoon!
While there was a real wide variety of which accents you all liked, one stood out amongst the rest!
...you all see where this is going, right??  Just don't say Jax doesn't deliver...

Turns out my readers like a man or woman with a sexy Australian accent.
That's when Lady In Red and I stumbled across two men from Australia.
Being the shy, conservative girl that I am, I immediately pestered these Australian men into doing an audio recording for my reader's listening pleasure.
They were so nice that they didn't even make me beg!!

The stars of the podcast are Michael and Rusty.
Don't know them?  Check them out!  They have hot accents and great blogs!!

All I had to do was give them a list of words to say in their Australian accent.
They were such great sports!  Not only did they read these words and sayings without any questions, but they also expanded on each one making it a real fun listen!!
I totally picked hot words too!  Sexy, strawberry, and rubbing oil on were just a few.


Happy Monday, ladies.
You're very welcome!!
Enjoy.

  1. Wow, a full list of words I don't think I ever wanted to hear Mike or Rusty say. I do dig the accents, though, so next time I want a sexy party with strawberries, I'll look you guys up, alright?

  10. : / Jax, that contest was a bit rigged. For example, everyone knows you like Chris Hemsworth, because of the gif you posted, and everyone knows you listed Mel Gibson as one of your most annoying actors, so you wouldn't have chosen him. But, I guess if a free lunch was a stake, I would cheat a little too. I agree about the Australian accent being a totally cool accent. And I can't do the fantasy football thing, because I have not been watching my football. I still think Jim McMahon is the Bears Quarterback.

    1. It wasn't rigged!!! I kept it anonymous and pleaded to my followers to be fair. :( :( :(

      It's not my fault that Buddy pick one of my most hated actors!! I didn't tell him to do such a silly thing. In fact, I gave him several opportunities to change that just b/c it made me cring to include Mr. Gibson in such a contest. Hmph. ;) lol

  11. It's good you figured out your audio problems. I guess this is what you were hinting at awhile back.

      Ohh, they sound better than Mr. Beckham!! Wait until you hear how they say "strawberry"...almost makes me want to eat one. hahahaha

    2. They are talking as if you are not even there Jax. Stalker, fetish, internet 40-year old, white teeth, heterosexual :)
      Forgive quickly and kiss slowly - tingle?. Who exactly is the prey and who is the stalker? ;-)
      These two should start their own talk show or something.
      Loved their accents, but I still prefer our Scottish/British accent conference calls :)

      Jax based on the phrases you had given them, where exactly are you working? sexy hotline service, talk to hot singles?

      Are you planning to run the opposite series - lousy accents one? Please dont select Indian or Latin. Anything else, my ears can handle.

      Delete
    3. LMAO Right?? Psh...it's like they didn't know that I would be listening ;) hahahaha Not to say that anything that said isn't true, but...I mean, hey now!! lol I kid, I kid!!

      They should start their own talk show. They are very entertaining!!! :)

      Sexy hotline service??? Ohh, think of the business I could make with that!!!
      You hear that boys...would you 2 like to be my first two employees for a sexy new voice hotline ;) haha

  15. What good sports and congrats to you and your blog for going international.

    As they discussed on not having to oil up at the beach, at least if I do make it to the Land Down Under, I'll know how to better fit in...

    And, thanks for the FF invite. Heck yes I am in. I do have to ask you if your draft will be rigged though so that only you can draft Gronk. I'll be watching you Jax.

  21. It's the Canadian accent that truly seduces the north american or european females. I notice how you didn't even include them in your little test. Aussie bumpkins always win with you Sheilas.

  26. You should have had them read 50 Shades of Grey in Aussie tones. Then not only would their spouses have a lot of performance issues to deal with, they'd need to learn the accent too! Poor guys.
