Talk Like an Egyptian

This news story is really weird. British woman has migraine, starts talking with Chinese accent.

She said, “The first few weeks of the accent was quite funny but to think I am stuck with this Chinese accent is getting me down.”

Man, and to think Chinese people have to live with it all the time.

Apparently, the migraine triggered something called Foreign Accent Syndrome (FAS) which, according to the article, affects only a couple dozen people around the world. Huh?

I wonder if I could get that New Zealand accent I always wanted.
