Australian Woman Who Woke Up From Surgery With Irish Accent May Be Stuck With It for Life

How it happened: Angie Yen, who lives in Brisbane, Queensland — and has never been to Ireland — had her tonsils removed on April 19. “I was getting ready for a job interview and I was just singing in the shower which I normally do and all these words were coming out; all the sounds I had never heard of before,” Yen told The Hard Shoulder.
