Did You Feel As Dirty As I Did When He Said “Taste­bud Sen­sa­tion”?

Old british man, to liquor store em­ploy­ees: Have any of you ever tried this beer?
Thugged-out liquor store em­ploy­ee #1: Nah.
Old british man: Oh, it’s a splen­did Bel­gian stout, very sweet. It’s my ab­solute fa­vorite va­ri­ety of Bel­gian beer. You should try it some­time. It is ab­solute­ly di­vine, a taste­bud sen­sa­tion the likes of which I can guar­an­tee you’ve nev­er known. Well, have a great night, chaps. [Pays for his beer and walks out.]Thugged-out liquor store em­ploy­ee #1: Yo, dog, you hear that guy’s ac­cent? You think his ac­cent was re­al?
Thugged-out liquor store em­ploy­ee #2: Nah.
Thugged-out liquor store em­ploy­ee #1: I don’t think so, ei­ther.
Thugged-out liquor store em­ploy­ee #2: It could­n’t have been re­al. You hear that guy? He ain’t from no for­eign coun­try. He spoke per­fect Eng­lish.
