Stupid Things That Pop Into My Head When Doing The Dishes

Katherine Hepburn's accent + James Mason's accent = Cary Grant's accent.

Boulder's Rule!

(an explanation: I had The Flintstones on the other night, not watching it, just background noise, and there was a character named Boulder who had the worst Cary Grant accent I've ever heard. It'd just go in and out, but then I got to thinking: it's kind of a hard accent. While Hepburn is clearly American, and Mason is definitely English, Grant's hovers somewhere between the two. But still -- every time I heard this dope say "Boulder's rule!" -- every three minutes, in other words -- I winced. Oh, and if you click the link above: No, I don't know why the New York Times has a plot summary of a Flintstones' episode.)
