Simon Jester, I unmask you as the Lord Haw Haw of the Nash. It would be wrong to suggest that you may wish to carry a warm bucket of spit around with you for dealing with those unexpected medical emergencies as a substitute for A&E.

iowahawk, brilliant work as usual.

Simon Jester

We have extremely expensive healthcare, paid for by tax. Because it's nationalised, it's not worth a pitcher of warm spit.

Roll on Cocacolanisation.

chris

hehe enjoyably at least our currency is worth something and we have free healthcare!

"Mr Treacher, I am afraid you may be mistaken. A version of English was given to my people by aggressive types from mainland Europe who came for a visit and certainly didn't have many manners as they killed quite a few of us and took our land, forcing those of us who spoke the 'hen iaith' further west. Not very pleasant, I'm afraid, but we're all fairly good chums now."

Europe. Yeah, right!

Yehudit

Actually, English was first spoken by the Muslims who discovered the American continent . . . .

Not only was England named after the language we speak here in the USA, many of its towns and cities were named after villages in Massachusetts...

Fast forward, and the aggressive types turned into . . . the French.

The more things change, the more they really turn upside down.

Yes, our spelling can be quite complex for those not raised within the UK. However, do not fear, we do admire your inconsistent and coloUrful simplification of the language and the retention of some archaic words and expressions.

Warm beer?!? Bring it on, Limey! I drink wine, and you don't know beans about making that!

Attila Girl

And their spelling is atrocious: when confused, they just add U's to everything.

TallDave

Haha!

It's a nice place to visit tho. Britain is one of the few places where they kinda speak English, although frankly they have a long way to go.

Jim Treacher

Forsooth and alas, methinks. Did you know England named their country after the American... talky words, whatsit... language? Except they don't say stuff right.

mrs mcmuffin

I have already signed up for my penpal. I think it's time us Brits did the whole cultural imperialism thing again. Your time is over. Prepare to drink warm beer.

Yehudit

We all had a great time too.
Thanks for the plug!
