I remember Click and Clack talking about this lady at least 18 or so years ago.

or maybe it was the other lady. Either way, this was on Car Talk.

There was actually another somewhat famous "case" where a woman faked I mean had a totally real illness. There have been a few real cases where people talked a bit off accent wise for a while but it usually passes after a few weeks.

Realy? You mean she's the only one who has exhibited "Foreign Accent Syndrome"? God damnit. I vaguely remember hearing about this when it was a thing, and assumed it was a rare (but real) mental disorder. But since I don't really care about obscure mental disorders, I didn't bother to investigate it or give it ahy thought at all, really.

God damn I hate our media. They're so fucking lazy. And while I'm at it, I'll go ahead & curse the dipshits in the audience who watched this piece & were convinced that it was totally a real thing. Proto MAGA voters.

Yeah I've been hearing about this since at least the mid 90s.

Newsweek-or-something did a blurb about it, among others. No idea if it was the same person.

Wikipedia claims the first documented case was in 1907 for what that's worth.

I think we can all agree this woman has a mental illness.

That mental illness is clearly the origin of her behavior.

But is it correlative or causative?

More on this story and and others like it, tonight on INSIDE EDITION.

More like needs attention syndrome amirite?

This lady reminds me of a woman I met 15 or so years ago in Missouri. She had normal mid-western accent, but after a stroke (when I met her), could only speak with a "French" accent. To my dumb ear, it sounded like it was a Parisian speaking English with a thick accent. She was frustrated by it, but was learning to accept it, so it seemed like a sincere condition. It was unclear whether the issue was her muscle control in her mouth changed and the affect was just an accent that sound French-like, or if there was a neurological component.

I think this is just a good troll fucking with the local news.

This reminds me of when I threatened my parents that I'd talk like Snagglepuss the cat for a month. It lasted about half a day.
