ha ha, good ones ! A few very 'British centric' items (I never understood the triangular sandwich thing, use REAL bread for heavens sake...:D ) but I definitely recognized myself/my own experience in a lot of them.

Who's Peter Kay?

What's a crisp? Potato chip?

and as an Ultimate Frisbee player of over 10 years, I have to disagree with 21. Maybe for someone who doesn't play the sport and only plays catch in a park ;)

Of course - especially after eating asparagus - makes pee a little stinky, you know?

Actually, its damn good, but imagine going to a urinal, with one right next to it. You just had some asparagus and someone walks up next to you .... there's no escaping the smell unless you flush :D

Sometimes, certain coffee can make pee smell a little different as well. And its not a bad smell, just something you don't really want to discuss to someone you're standing next to, you know? :p

Awesome.

35a) Knowledge is knowing a Banana is an herb, but not grinding it up and adding it to food like a spice.
