Nah, a southern accent doesn't equate to stupidity. That's an unfortunate and mostly incorrect stereotype perpetrated primarily in the upper US Midwestern and New England states. She actually handled herself quite well on camera, articulated well and a good amount of animation for the film project as a whole. I found it very entertaining and informative.

To tell you the truth, I can't think of a single video I've seen here on Spudfiles that is as well put together overall.

I didn't say anything to remotely imply a southern accent equates to stupidity. (if you really listen though you can hear how the accent comes in and out) I wasn't talking about her accent at all, it was her speech and how fake she sounded. As far as geography and stereotypes go, I happen to be from Arizona but have lived all over the US (including the south east) and can say truthfully, stupid people are everywhere.

That indeed they are. The sad part is most don't even realize it.

I can't tell if she says Joe or Joel. If she does actually say Joel, then I have a very good reason to crap my pants.

Even if she isn't related to the great king, she's still rather attractive. Accent sounds a little forced though. But, who cares. I'd let her [insert blatant sexual innuendo here] my [insert obvious genital reference] any day.

I, like PVC Arsenal, think she said "Joe". Also, there is a palmetto palm tree behind her in this video which would more than likely place her somewhere in the southern coastal regions. Joel is in Appleton, Wisconsin so while not impossible, it would seem unlikely they are related. Also, Joel is much more a pneumatic man.

Not necessarily true. I believe I once read that he personally prefers combustion cannons (probably in one of the many articles about him that are scattered across the net), but the pneumatics are a very good business.

I can't remember where I heard that, so I can't directly link to it, but I think it's right.

But I do believe it is Joe - it's a bit difficult to tell through the accent (which I admit does sound a bit forced).
Even then, we can't assume that even if it is Joel that it's the same Joel we know - it's not that rare a name.
