My lovely daughter, who apparently inherited a family-wide affection for colorful and creative language, thought for a very long time that our neighbors to the north lived in Canadia.
You guys should try some air from the gulf of Alaska some time.
I never thought I had much of an accent, since my natural inflection is similar to the talking heads on network news. I was disabused of this notion some years later when somebody informed me that I sound like I am from the midwest (my parents are from Kansas).
Ever since I was very young - when I thought that emulating Pepe LePew's accent meant "speaking French" - I have been fascinated by the study of linguistic inflection. It can often be amusing to see just how long I can go while doing an impression of my dear Tennessee friend Dave, or one of my laughable (but respectful) characatures of our friends in the UK.
And yes, I always was fascinated by Rich Little. "Easily Amused" is a virtue.
