Oh don't get me wrong, I absolutely love you Scot's
I just think an angry drunk Scot is a force to be reckoned with


Yes, that's certainly true

Listen
The Scots are the one people in the west that the men can walk around in a schoolgirl skirt and no person in their right mind will question or make fun of him...

That right there is a testiment to their badassness

with regards to your opening post Saturn, i think your mean leaving out scotland, wales and northern ireland from the comparison, some of us actually have english friends as well!!



That would be unfair if he brought the Scots, Welsh and Irish in, because with our awesomeness we would win hands down

Haha. Somebody mentioned the tv licence earlier, ive got no problem with paying it, i love having no ads, and the quality of programmes on the beeb is the best in the world.
Also for our american buddies, i had my first krispy Kreme (wtf i with the spelling) doughnut the other day, i was massively dissapointed, so much build up, and then

However i have to say, in an oreo versus bourbon competitition, the yankie biscuit would win hands down.

In the spirit of the OP. Let me tell you this.

We travelled from England to the USA last year. We enjoyed our trip very much. The people who didn't rob us or shoot at us were very friendly indeed. But eventually we had to return home.

When we got back home, we discovered a mouse in one of our suitcases, buried deep in some clothing. He must've hopped in when we were packing up in the hotel. American hotels. They even embed free pubic hair in the soap ... American generosity knows no bounds.

Anyway, I digress. Back to mousey.

Tragically, he was dead. Assuming he was a he, it was difficult to tell, such was his modesty downstairs. Much like American men, I'm reliably told. But we won't go into that here. I don't like intruding on the personal grief of so many ATS contributors here today.

My point is this. Even dead mice with no genitals are fleeing Obama's USA.

That says it all really. A true story, too.

Even the parts which are fictional are true.

I think England is better than the USA because :- (1) English mice have huge endowments (2) English mice don't hide in hoodies like girls do and (3)



Hmm

What I got from this was:
You stayed in some rat trap hotel in the hood and hooked up with women dressed as men.
Also, you have a rather odd fixation on rodents genitila

So...New Jersey I am guessing...

Except when the wind goes all Marilyn Munroe on them. I've seen people poke their eyes out with scissors after witnessing what is known as 'Kilt Updraft'.

I never could understand the krispy kream donut popularity...perhaps its because its so average it is considered a great thing...

To fully understand the greatness of american food, you must be introduced to the finest we have to offer

Behold...the dorito shell taco!

Okay, sorry Saturn de-railing your thread here, but couldn't resist posting this Ed Byrne (Irish Comedian) and his sketch on fighting, the best bit is near the end when he talks about drunk Scots fighting
it's awesome, but apologies for some of the language.

Sorry it's not youtube, not sure how to embed it..

John Cleese once said that Brits celebrate July 5th.
They're happy to be rid of us.

Oh mighty slayer of tin cans, with every post you garner more awe from me. LOL.

Heres one for you:
Language, I know theoretically we speak the same language but really do we?
US: Toilet UK: Loo
US: cigarette UK: fag
US: Call me. UK: ring me up.
US: come over to my place. UK: Knock me up. ( US has whole other meaning for that one dear brits)
US: Take a vacation UK : Go on holiday.
