We hereby outlaw the widespread practice of proclaiming in tones of wonder that when one speaks with a person who has a different accent, one begins to pick up the other person's accent. We are bored with these proclamations. All people prone to such proclamations are hereby informed that this is the normal human reaction, and are advised to find some other means of proving their superiority to the average minion. We suggest proclaiming in tones of wonder that street lamps go off when you walk under them.
There will be a one-week grace period for people who desire to proclaim in tones of wonder that when they speak with someone who has a different accent, they don't pick up the other person's accent.
