Silent Hunter: The examples weren't quite what I was aiming for. It's a character, for two or three lines, imitating another accent (or another character). The other person is usually completely aware that's not their natural accent. For example, I could briefly put on a Mad Scientist accent if I was watching something in the Frankenstein vein, for example.

Moved these to How's Your British Accent?, since that is what they are.
