It is now possible for you to hear the phrase 'five thick slabs' in every accent in the world.

“Ms Peppermint, what do they sound like in India?” Well, how cool is this, kids? First, there is intrigue:
Please call Stella. Ask her to bring these things with her from the store: Six spoons of fresh snow peas, five thick slabs of blue cheese, and maybe a snack for her brother Bob. We also need a small plastic snake and a big toy frog for the kids. She can scoop these things into three red bags, and we will go meet her Wednesday at the train station.
Now, suspense! I want to know what this is a code for. Because, as the above site purports, you can hear this message as if it were delivered by someone speaking in one of the following accents: Afrikaans, Agni, Agny, Akan, Albanian, Amharic, Anyin, Appolo, Arabic, Armenian, Azerbaijani, Azeri Turk, Bafang, Baga, Bahasa Indonesian, Bai, Bamanankan, Bambara, Bamun, Banganthe, Basque, Belarusan, Bengali, Bislama, Bosnian, Bouole, Bulgarian, Cantonese, Carolinian, Catalan, Chagga, Chamorro, Chinese, Chuukese, Creole, Creole French, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dari, Dholuo, Dinka, Dutch, Ebira, Edo, English, Esperanto, Ewe, Fang, Fanti, Farsi, Fefe, Finnish, French, Frisian, Ga, Gamugna, Georgian, German, Giriama, Greek, Gujarati, Gusii, Hausa, Hebrew, Hindi, Hindi Urdu, Hindko, Hunanese, Hungarian, Icelandic, Igbo, Ilocano, Indonesian, Irish, Irish Gaelic, Italian, Japanese, Javanese, Kannada, Kazakh, Khalkha Mongol, Khmer, Kiha, Kikongo, Kikuyu, Kirghiz, Kiswahili, Kongo, Konkani, Korean, Krio, Kuanua, Kupang, Kurdi, Kurdish, Lamaholot, Lamotrekese, Lao, Latin, Latvian, Lingala, Lithuanian, Luo, Macedonian, Malay, Malayalam, Maltese, Mandarin, Mandingo, Manem, Maninkakan, Marathi, Mauritian, Mende, Mongolian, Moore, Morisyen, Mortlockese, Nagi, Ndebele, Nepali, Norwegian, Oriya, Oromo, Panjabi, Patois, Persian, Pidgin, Pidgin English, Pohnpeian, Polish, Poonchi, Portuguese, Punjabi, Quechua, Romanian, Russian, Sanskrit, Saraiki, Sardinian, Sarua, Satawalese, Schwyzerd?tsch, Serbian, Setswana, Shona, Sicilian, Sign Language, Sikka, Sindhi, Sinhala, Sinhalese, Slovak, Slovenian, Solomon Islands Pidgin, Somali, Spanish, Sunda, Sundanese, Susu, Swahili, Swedish, Swiss German, Synthesized, Tagalog, Taishan, Taiwanese, Tamil, Tatar, Telugu, Temne, Thai, Tibetan, Tigrigna, Tok Pisin, Tswana, Turkish, Twi, Ukrainian, Ulithian, Ulster Scots, Urdu, Uyghur, Uzbek, Vietnamese, Welsh, Woleaian, Wolof, Xiang, Yapese, Yiddish, Yoruba, Yue, Zoroastrian, Zulu which I thought was kinda cool and all but still, what is this a code for? who is Stella and how did she get mixed up in this international Bleu Cheese Conspiracy?
