How Good Is Your Arianna Impression?


Arianna Huffington's distinct accent got a mention at Saturday's White House Correspondents' Dinner, when comedian Joel McHale joked that the accent represented 19 different nationalities.

Yes, professional comics still make Arianna accent jokes. HuffPost staff, with Arianna's help, could only come up with eight or so nationalities, but we're pretty sure we've heard at least 19,000 different impressions of the accent, from Nasim Pedrad -- who has herself been an Arianna guest at the correspondents dinner -- and Tracey Ullman, to White House speechwriter Jon Lovett and every fifth person we tell where we work.

Is your Arianna impression better?

To mark the upcoming ninth birthday of The Huffington Post, we're asking you to send in your best Arianna impression. Email it to us or post it on Vine, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter with the hashtag #ThankYouDahling. We'll feature some of our favorites on Friday, with the winner getting a yet-to-be-determined, but definitely awesome prize.

The first submission comes from HuffPost's Sam Stein. It's not terrible, though he is not eligible to win the contest.
