and did those feet..............

To educate our friends in this multi cultural society I post a little insight into life on the green and pleasant island that we call Great Britain….

Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for

a Belgian beer, then traveling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a

Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch

American shows on a Japanese TV.

And the most British thing of all? Suspicion of anything foreign.

Oh and......

Only in Britain... can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

Only in Britain... do supermarkets make sick people walk all the

way to the back of the shop to get their prescriptions while

healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in Britain... do people order double cheeseburgers, large

fries and a DIET coke.

Only in Britain... do banks leave both doors open and chain the

pens to the counters.

Only in Britain... do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds on

the drive and lock our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage.

Only in Britain... do we use answering machines to screen calls

and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we

didn't want to talk to in the first place.


3 Brits die each year testing if a 9v battery works on their tongue.

58 Brits are injured each year by using sharp knives instead of


31 Brits have died since 1996 by watering their Christmas tree while

the fairy lights were plugged in.

18 Brits had serious burns in 2000 trying on a new jumper with a

lit cigarette in their mouth.

A massive 543 Brits were admitted to A&E in the last two years

after opening bottles of beer with their teeth.

And finally.........

In 2000 eight Brits cracked their skull whilst throwing up into the toilet.

I see Brits and Americans have a few things in common other than a similar language.

Well, ugly camel, this one definitely applies to Brits and to Americans "Only in Britain... do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a DIET coke."
