Reposted from Overheard in New York

This is a repost of something I read on Overheard in NY and thought other people should enjoy too.

Old british man, to liquor store employees: Have any of you ever tried this beer?
Thugged-out liquor store employee #1: Nah.
Old british man: Oh, it's a splendid Belgian stout, very sweet. It's my absolute favorite variety of Belgian beer.
You should try it sometime. It is absolutely divine, a tastebud sensation the likes of which I can guarantee you've never known. Well, have a great night, chaps. [Pays for his beer and walks out.]

Thugged-out liquor store employee #1: Yo, dog, you hear that guy's accent? You think his accent was real?
Thugged-out liquor store employee #2: Nah.
Thugged-out liquor store employee #1: I don't think so, either.
Thugged-out liquor store employee #2: It couldn't have been real. You hear that guy? He ain't from no foreign country. He spoke perfect English.
