Default You can take the man out of England but...

No matter how long you have been here you are 100% British if you do any of the following things

When watching Spiderman 2, when Alfred Molena comes on the screen think to yourself - thats the guy thats married to Juliet Bravo.

No matter how much you like the NFL when you see the amount of padding they wear you still think "puffs"

for no apparent reason you sing in your head "Mike Read, Mike Read, two seven five and two eight five on National Radio One"

or

When someone tells you a sad story you can hear the "Our Tune" Music in your head

or

you think Mr Spoon when you see a geek in the supermarket

When you pour yourself a glass of milk you think "Watch out, Watch out theres a Humphry about"

If you go to work on the underground or on a train you sit there and sing in your head "Time flies by when your the driver of a train, over bridges, under bridges to our destination, there and back again...."

You still think "eth eth eth eth eth eth Chris Waddle" when someone speaks spanish around you

or

You want to say "Butros, Butros Garly" when you say goodbye to a spanish speaker

or

You cannot by a pair of pants without saying "suits you sir"

You giggle when someone says look at my pants

You have given people the v sign when they cut you up

You refer to Michael Jackson as Whacko Jacko and Madonna as Madge

You call a male perm a Kevin Keegan

When you meet someone called Hugh you think (in your head) Hugh, Hugh, Barney Mcgrew, Cuthbert, Dibble and Grub.

When you meet a Rodney you think "you Plonka"

Anymore?
