It's only when comments like these are heard or read that Americans start up against the Brits. I guess we just don't like to be looked down on.


EXACTLY COS THERE ALL TOOLS !
you could not pick a bigger bunch of pricks if you worked in a needle factory,
as for morgan taking the place of Larry King this is insanity.
Even I know Larry King is a legend.

The only thing I can recall between Americans and Brits on ATS is Brits calling Americans "Yanks" or something like that. I always figured it was either from "Yankee" or "Wanker" or a combination of both. I assume wanker means a dude's private parts, so I figured we were just being called d*cks or something. Not to be confused with the British dish called "spotted dick"....which sounds more like a venereal disease than a dessert you're suppose to eat.


LOL.

The term ''yank'' is used both affectionately and insultingly... It all depends on the context in which it is applied and used !

I can assure you that the term ''yank'' has absolutely nothing to do with the term ''wanker'' !


''Wanker'', in British slang - not to put too much of a fine point on it - means a man who ''self-pleasures'', but is used as a general pejorative term to describe any man who is a bit of a tool.


On the other hand, ''Spotted dick'' should have no sexual meaning, as it's just a pudding, that has no phallic or masturbatory connotations !

I dislike the British Gov't very much. Honestly the reason I don't like the UK is that the city of London owns the Virginia corporation, which is "America". Our social security tax is a tribute to the Queen.

So yes, the city of London owns me, and I am not happy about it.

Also the average brit is a total wanker, unable to comprehend the bondage they live in. Also they like to let their pro gun control views be known, and how they are so much safer in their total police/surveillance state.

I'm an American and I don't hate.. Anyone.

I wish I had free health care, less fluoride in my water, no one groping me at the airport, less harmful chemicals in toiletries, and the ability to hold a peaceful protest.

Seriously jealous

Perhaps I'm just guilty of attempting to formulate an extremely asinine
and puerile response based on a fundamentally flawed and tired old stereotype.

I just remember reading different news articles here & there that reported of the huge immigrant population & its strain on the economy because immigrants usually have many more children than native Brits (I am repeating something that I read, people, so simmer down because I am not passing judgment on anyone).
It seems that there are tensions in the UK right now because of their significant Muslim population.
I also remember reading something about gypsies too, like they're supposed to be a controversial strain on the economy as well. If memory serves, I think Spain passed some sort of "gypsy" legislation or something, which I found weird because when I think of gypsies I think of a literal "gypsy", like a fortune teller or a band of thieves or carnies or something.

Same stuff that any country that has immigration laws & issues has to deal with &/or work through, I'm sure.

As a Canadian, I feel cultural kinship towards both Americans and the British.
As a FRENCH Canadian, I am obliged to hate them both.

He does have a point though.. You only have to watch one episode of Jeremy Kyle (Brit Jerry Springer-esque talk show) to see shocking examples of dental hygiene. I feel it's an institutional thing but standards seem to be on the up when going through the more recent generations.
Its probably all the tea and crumpets I'm apparently partial to lol according to roughly 80% of Americans on COD.
But that's another story..

I think it would be the opposite, most European people 'hate' Americans more than the opposite but the whole thing is really usually just joking around and poking fun. Plus lol, we DID save your asses in TWO wars at last minute! (jk)
