First it was Paul Pierce and Vince Wilfork. Now it's David Ortiz's turn to attempt to speak with a Boston accent -- and he even makes a joke about how losing his "tempah" when he smashed the dugout phone in Baltimore a couple of weeks ago. Not sure how that'll play if he tries to express contrition in appealing his fine from the incident, but it's funny nevertheless.

Given that it's a Boston accent on top of his Dominican tongue, it's honestly not a bad attempt. Even more impressive, though, are those blingin' shoes.

Enjoy the clip -- and if you just can't get enough of these, Honey Boo Boo's mom made one, too. (We're not sure why, either.)
