11. Southern Californian
Our undying love for Point Break prevents this obnoxious accent from being at the bottom of the list, but this squawking, nasally speech pattern sounds like somebody put numbing agent on your tongue. And tongue rings are soooooooo 1992.
Prime examples: Every Keanu Reeves character from the ‘90s
Forrest Gump brought international attention to this accent, which has resulted in the butchering of it over the last 20 years by anyone who didn’t spend the ‘90s under a rock. To replicate the accent, pull your tongue all the way back in your throat like you’ve just taken a big swig of sweet tea and let it dribble out a bit and cry “mah fanger hurts.”
Prime examples: Emmylou Harris, Jen-naee
The accent most often associated with Spanglish, it’s a blending of the two worlds and most commonly heard in parts of the country that used to be Mexico until we decided they should be the US, marked by extremely long pronunciations of words containing consecutive uses of the letter "E."
Prime examples: Cheech Marin, B-Real
