This is an article about the regional dialect in England centered around the industrial city of Birmingham (Brumijem to the locals) and not about our own Brummie poster. (That's not to say he isn't beautiful in his own way.)
The Midland accent, often mocked and usually a 'Black-country" accent as opposed to true Brummie (can you say Dudd-lay) is looked down upon by many native Brits. I once met a radio DJ at the Minnesota state fair who spent some time in the Midlands of England. He could do a really good Brummie accent. Far better than me and I used to live in the region.
