The Two Ronnies - Four Candles - Accent Confusion

This particular sketch from a British comedy show called 'The Two Ronnies' is one of the many retro classics that people always talk about. There are so many different types of accent across Britain and you only need travel 70 miles along a motor way to hear the difference in local dialect. Sometimes it is easy to misunderstand someone. In this sketch the point is really stretched and causes much laughter, because you can see the shopkeeper's point of view, yet understand the ignorant cockney who can't be too bothered by the store man's dilemma.
