    I'm probably not the only one over here who thinks at least half of those would be favourable.

    very funny.

    Just a few remarks.

    French fries should be called Belgian fries and must be eaten with mayonaise.
    Don't forget to serve these with a good pint of Belgian beer.

    Never seen that before, nice :D

    To point 3 though, the more colourful English should be named just that - English. US English should still remain. British English? No!

    I would totally love it if the British Empire took control of the American Empire. Maybe we would actually get things done if they did.:D

    God save the Queen! (not Bush).:cool:

    Funny, but pretty old as shown by Point 9. Petrol in the UK is now about $12 / gallon, and going up.

    Hahahah Funny.

    Maybe as part of our new foreign policy we'll send dentists and orthodontists to your country. :D

    ^^BTW that smile on the little green face is almost what a smile is supposed to look like.

    But then who will keep the UK safe? Either way, I'm looking forward to becoming a whiner. :)

    That's funny; I spent a few days in London a few weeks back and I can tell you that about a third of the people I've met spoke proper English, the rest just sound like they popped a hot potato in their mouth and tried to speak.

    I hate baseball, haaate it.

    Cricket can go for five whole days without the guarantee of a win and I find it infinitely more entertaining than baseball.

    Baseball - blergh.

    And American Football would be much more entertaining if you ditched the pads and stopped swapping a million players on and off the field during the game. Offensive team? Defensive team? Special team? How's about just having one team and you've got to do the whole flogging lot.

    Hate to nitpick, but Andie McDowell's character in 4 weddings was actually American.

    Its amazing the few Americans in here who've commented on giving themselves back up to the crown. Jefferson would be appalled :p

    Hilarious! Very well done. :D But I have a bit of a problem with a few of them...

    Fine, as long as that's so, I will proceed to pronounce them as favoor, neighboor, and coloor. I don't even care if it'll detract from my honoor (or lack thereof). :p

    They forgot the Toronto Blue Jays and the former Montreal Expos! :rolleyes: Shows how much you Brits know about baseball.

    Princess Di's mum mom and dad. Duh! I thought other countries were supposed to know more about our history than we do? :D

    We do like football. It's just some rugby derivative in suits of armour we don't care for (as in article 13 of the document ;))

    Although I do dispute whether anyone appointed by Gordon Brown could do a better or worse job than Bushco. to be honest...

    Congrats, you met what we call "A cockney". Cockney is an area in London where gangsters live. The police don't intervene because, and they're very strict on this, they only kill their own.
