Man adopts weird accent after doing ancestry DNA test


A MAN who completed a DNA test has turned up at work with a bizarre accent.

Tom Booker has affected an accent that seems to combine Cornwall, the Highlands and northern France, less than 12 hours after receiving the results.

Booker’s colleague Nikki Hollis said: “Tom normally talks like a posh boy from a Sussex commuter town, because that’s what he is. But yesterday he came into the office and immediately asked if anyone wanted a ‘carp of toi or coiffee’.

“He was also wearing a hat I’d never seen before, and what looked like wooden clogs for some reason.

“When I asked if he was OK he just shrugged, told me to relax and explained that ‘you British are too uptight’.”

Booker added: ” Turns out I’m 3% Irish, 2% Dutch, one-sixteenth German and almost 1% Armenian. It’s now my duty to make sure the dialect of my people doesn’t die out.”
