Ah........but only "our own" know how testy we are about it............ :p ;)

Bit of an embarrassing blip in English History ;) ......did you know the soldiers who arrived to quell the rebellion thought they'd died and gone to heaven when they saw the sheer bounty of this country.......and that was the bleedin NorthEast. :eek:
If we'd had leaders to send like Wellington, Marlborough or Cromwell then this place would look a lot different........nah, we sent Fops who had silver spoons up their bums and ended up with Saratoga and Yorktown.......

Not that I'd ever admit any of this to one of .......them. :rofl:

1: They don't smell as bad as the French
2: V8's...(and Im not talking health drinks)
3: Gas is cheap
4: Talk is cheap
5: I can be very rude and they just think Im a quirky Brit just like Simon whatshisname.
6: They are very polite....with the exception of a slight lack of the use of "Please and Thank you's".
7: They make good porn
8: Due to a large amount and a history of inbreeding there are a extraordinary number of people with less than optimum intelligence (apparently I can't call them retards)..that will do all the shit jobs in my yard very cheap.
9: You can exploit anyone ....it's the American way
10: They allow imported beer...thank god.

10. Not always cynical (or is that #1?).
9. Gary Larson.... where else can the School of the Gifted produce a kid pushing a door rather than pulling it in order to enter a building?
8. Always encouraging you to have a nice day regardless of your mood - and ensuring us that we are not deaf and command us to come back whenever we leave. (...you hear?).
7. Curious by nature and open ended conversations stemming from questions with propositions - which is an invitation to jump right in.
6. 24/7 grocery stores for whenever you have the munchies.
5. Serving ice with your drink!!
4. Humorous bumperstickers; boredom relief when stuck at traffic lights.
3. Microbrews.. finally, good crafted beer readily available and so not so dependant upon tinted flavoured water.
2. Ice cream... puts Walls etc to shame.
1. Flexibility and "Can do" mentality.. for instance, changing your mind is not a terrible thing to do and you are not putting anyone out of their way if you want to return or exchange items; should you want to go back to school later in life, no hassle.
