The UK Explained

I often have found myself trying to explain to my American friends back home the dynamics of the UK. Thankfully I found this over at Almost American's blog. I think it pretty much sums it up.

It needs to be printed on Fish & Chip shop paper to be entirely accurate.

Well, now I get it! Thanks. Aren't all politicians pansies, though?

Mmmm....rugby. They just started playing it on Spike over here. I happened upon it one day. I now seriously heart rugby. They really need to strip down a few of our football players and see if they pass muster. Cuz if they look that good in shorts, I might just start watching football.

Beer in the middle unites the country...good one.

Love it!

Awesome.

One things puzzles me - no football. Which is a bit of an omission in any Venning of the British, if you ask me.

Mango Girl said...

That is a wonderful explanation.

That's very good, especially beer being in the centre. Also in the centre should be 'crap public transport'. There should be an indication that the Scots and Irish are nutters and the Welsh are a bit odd. The English, of course, are normal.

I love that! It's perfect!

Angela Rhodes said...

Haha I love it!

so I've got a good shot of getting through customs with an armful of Guinness when I make a visit?

Sprite's Keeper said...

Somehow I knew the answer would be beer.

that girl said...

LOL! Love it!

Beer - the common denominator - that's AWESOME! I've often wondered and I'm so glad you cleared that up.

A Mom on Spin said...

Yeah, I think my daughter's been drinking in all the right places. . .

Irish Gumbo said...

I'm good on the beer, but, yeah, where's the footie?

Ribbon said...

Beer is in the middle. What country could go wrong with that?
