While in Corsica, people would regularly refer to us as "Anglais" and we got into the habit of correcting them (nicely) with "Irlandais". (Yes, yes, I know I actually am English, but Vic and Daisy are Northern Irish and they outnumber me. "Irlandais" is a correct description of the family.) Anyway, so one nice shopkeeper, explaining why she made the mistake, says, "C'est la meme accent."
Well, I found it amusing.
