Genuine Email (or not?)

I got this email today. I can't decide if it is for real or all a joke. Either way, it made me laugh.

"i'm an american who's looking to move to england as soon as i have the money. i've been working on my british slang and everything haha. you mentioned in one of your youtube videos that young children are required to wear a mouthpiece for 5 hours a week to improve their accent. where might one come about one of these mouthpieces? i'd like one so i can work on my british accent. i mean, i can pull one off, but i'd like for it to sound natural, you know? anyways, i'll leave it to your discretion whether or not i get a reply. i'm not one to beg. thanks in advance if you do help me!"

I really want the guy (Im assuming its a guy since they are american and an idiot, although american women are pretty idiotic as well- to be fair) to be joking but I have a feeling that he was actually being sincere...oh do reply to him and put him out of his misery...

Wow, bless his heart...lol

My response:

Well, since the mouthpieces are only manufactured in childrens sizes, telling you where to get one wouldn't be helpful. You'll just have to do it with the old fashioned method of practice and repetition. I suggest practice phrases such as "How now brown cow?" and "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers."

It really sounds genuine... I dunno. If it's a joke, it's not a very good one if you can't figure out if IT IS A JOKE.

He is going to have an Aweful time if he thought your video was real! I would reply that he'd have to have one made for himself when he gets over. 'Tho perhaps he just wants to engage you in conversation and to meet you when he comes over.

probly there are a whole bunch of people out there who were stung deep by your sarcasm video, & now they are desperate to redeem themselves somehow.
would be funny ay? :D

That is realy funny to read, i saw the video, and found it hilarious because you where joking making fun of how people from abroud sometimes see England, but to think the stuff said in the video was real its just so funny. Wait till he finds out that not all britons are called Charles and Elisabeth like you said. But still the attention and impact what sarcasm video had and how many people thought what you said was the truth and real and not sarcastic at all just goes to show how some people construe your videos.
Have a great last day of the year 2007

I thought the "Gully Ball" at the end would have given it away.

I don't think it was genuine.

That video was one of my favorites.
