Heheh, you mean something like this? Try it; I think I get most right..

Actually, I think you'd be able to understand me perfectly well, but
hearing all kinds of accents ("real" English, southern American-English,
[add your flavour here]) and not speaking the language natively or often
with others will most probably make ones pronunciation, well, funny, I
think. :-) Oh well, so be it. ;^P
