I'm trying to find the bombcast or section where Jeff is reading something with an accent that keeps changing. I vaguely remember it eventually evolved into a Mexican one? Thanks for the help!

Unrelated, but at some point (I think when Jeff did a video about Kinect Xbox One TV integration), some guy pointed out that Jeff says "chennel" whenever he says the word "channel", and now it's all I can hear. So fuck that guy.

Yeah me too. The last few weeks I've been going back and listening to the 2008-2009 podcasts in order and it's hard to listen to sometimes. Also, I miss the random craziness of the Podcasts back then.

I've just come to notice this in the last few weeks. It really is way more distracting than it has any right to be.

One of my favorite segments ever.

I love the Bombcast and always will (probably). Still funny but boy...it will never be as good as it was during that time. I would frequently howl with laughter and if I were in the car listening, people at redlights would star because I was laughing so hard.

It's bothered my soul ever since I heard him say the word channel.

I died a little inside when Nintendo stopped putting out those description bits for their new releases. :(

If you like that, check out the way Brad says "compass".

com-pus

They've been saying 'kinect' a lot when they've really meant to say connect.

I've long accepted that Brad's southern upbringing has randomly left him with a handful of words he pronounces really strangely. If anything, maybe we're the weird ones for pronouncing it "cum-pus". Though "comm-pus" is also weird. I just try to not think about that word anymore.

English is fucked up. Literally no one actually pronounces that word "comm-pass" or "comp-ass" which is phonetically how it should be.

I think it's this one from 7-13-2010, starts around 1:50:00.

Yep! I notice this EVERY TIME he says it now, and it always drives me completely nuts.

English is kind of a fucked up language. The letters within words aren't always pronounced like they are supposed to be. Who decided that "-tion" was pronounced "shun"?

Also, we Californians don't try very hard to differentiate the short A sound from the short E sound, so Jeff's pronunciation of channel as "chennel" isn't that weird.

There's another one too. He falls into a Mexican accent half way into it, similar to this one but it's even funnier, I can't remember the date though.
