The word "mom" Jesus that's irritating. Sorry America.
Maybe I need to stay off reddit.
Dudley and does this.
She also says "her" instead of "she"
As in, "her's got a bloody cheek, she wants a coghaver!"
posts once a month and always good...
i meant to this the one above it. and they do write mom.
It's starting to creep into the Faithful City and even as far as Malvern. Worrying times.
the sort of Obama voting hipsters that i spent a year with who maybe visited Europe once and thought they were incredibly more cultured than anyone else. that's maybe not exclusive to americans though.
The societal reaction was far more pronounced to 9/11, immensely so. Circumstances were different but both were terrorist bombings.
I like America, it's a crazy place.
....because being skeptical of it is out of fashion.
But nice try
No hang on that's highly amusing.
Worst thing about the North Americans is probably the bizarre development of self-righteous couch-politics dullard they create in the UK simply by existing. Oh hey Furio.
but i am mean. safety wink, though
i just said the word mum was annoying cool yer jets
Me? Oh I'm 3/8ths Irish, 5/16ths Italian, a quarter Polish with a little Dutch in there too. Other than that they seem like a great bunch of lads.
I.e. "Man, you faggots, that was sooo retarded!"
Other than that, they're a nice bunch of lads. Though at the end of the day they're essentially poor mans' Newfoundlanders.
yes, specifically english. saying that though, they are obnoxiously loud
Lose some weight America.
It's about believing if you work hard you will succeed.
Which is not inherently a bad thing, but when it is so prevalent in a culture it also leads to the belief that poor people are only poor because they don't work hard.
awesome BBQ, incredible rock music and legions of pretty girls who know how to give proper blowjobs.
Aussies & white South Africans are generally worse
BUT, the way they say herb is really annoying.
I like your mom too.
and walk around.
e.g. "Jealous much?" in a broad Australian accent
from some 'progressive psy-trance' festival he'd been to, pointed at it and said 'bass-face, much?'
I'm fairly sure that was worse than anything anyone in America has ever done.
Hopefully it's getting better but overall >_<
The teepees, the feathers in hair, the fact that they name themselves after animals, riding horses without saddles, no electricity or plumbing.
interview Simon Amstell the other day. I've heard her a few times before and she's always seemed quite intelligent, but as part of this interview, she asked Simon what it was like to be Jewish in the UK. Then she asked him if Jews celebrate Chanukah over here, presumably because she thought Chanukah was specifically part of Jewish-American culture as opposed to Jewish culture in general. That kind of cultural ignorance seems quite typically American to me. On the other hand, at least they're not ashamed of it, and are willing to ask questions like "Do Jews celebrate Chanukah?" We tend to either keep our mouths shut or revel in it. Either way, we don't learn anything.
Bunch of arrogant, self-important ghets.
Which they believe is in England
Either that or they ask me if I'm Irish because their Grandpappy was Irish.
and burst out laughing. CREG
They find it hilarious when I say Craig.
then i found out his name was actually craig :s
is that they really couldn't give a damn what people in the UK and Europe think about them.
but their overt paranoia. About everything. Health, taxes, terrorism, China.
Also: They worship sport too much.
we never do this of course
and the worshipping sports craic is hilarious
is one of paranoia. How can you be xenophobic about taxes or health?
I dunno how many places you've been in America but news is sport. Local TV is sport. Bars are sport. Clothing is sport. Everything is around or about sport. We have chat shows. They have sport analysis. We're not built on sport. America is. I think it's a fair statement. Stop being pissy for no good reason.
I can tell you this is not the case about sport. It does play a part in everyday live but then it does in UK to the same extent, this place is not built on sport.
I would say David Letterman, Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Conan O'Brien would all argue that there are chat shows
asking for directions to Lie-sester Square Glow-ces-ter Road
...they are playing nazis.
from a can.
that's a great thing
They're great, but, despite being completely different (one is a Jewish American ridiculously smart filmmaker, the other is a blonde, hooters-loving fashion student) they do always go on about how brilliant America is, and how much better everything is at home, and how they did this exact same thing in America but it was 20 times better.
They're probably right, I mean food portions are bigger in America, i'm sure there are some great shacks on the side of a highway where you can get 200 buffalo wings for a dollar, I'm sure there is a crazy cafe in Brooklyn where people give you weed free with your coffee. But after the first story about how much more fun we could be having if we crossed the Atlantic, it gets a bit boring.
I bloody love them.
and their big fat tummies and fannypacks.
*I don't have...
*I haven't got...
^make your mind up and take your pick, ffs. I don't got the time to be correcting you each time you mangle your phrases. So you need to write TO me. You can 'write me' if you want, but no-one's gonna new impressed by you spelling a two letter word. Gah, just thinking about it makes me so pissed OFF that I'm gonna have a drink and get pissed.
new impressed? *be impressed. Swype having a small USian moment there.
and not all Americans that we're talking about?
if not the way that canadians pronounce Mary, marry & merry exactly the same way & that they can't say mirror
From East to West.
