And as I am only half-Brit.....I'm allowed

I'd have to agree with most others-British toilet humour is one of "your" best exports. As are Travis & Oasis (remember this is BRITISH-not English, in my post).

KROC-You're welcome, we can do without the Puritans thank-you very much! Big grin

Footy......Yeah, football, NOT soccer!

The 'Loaded' culture......Be as obnoxious as you like, loud as you like, drunk as you like, and still tell her its part of the Loaded cultural revolution!

Lads mags.....FHM, Loaded, Maxim, they're porn, but classy porn, and the articles are good too!

Essex girls......whats the difference between an Essex girl and a....(yeah we've heard em all before)

The 3am Doner Kebab mentality......God's own food

Aston Martin, TVR, Morris Minor......ok so they break down a lot, but what awesome cars

The ability to drink at a sensible age......21 to drink guys, you gotta be joking!

Ali G....aiiiiight!

Richard and Judy.......what was with the Ali G impression, and oh yeah, nice bra Judy

The tabloids......yeah ok sometimes they deserve the flak, but they're so much more interesting than those big ones!

Sarcasm.....Lowest form, but funniest form of humour

Radio 1.......Mark and Lard, Chris Moyles..how funny are they!?

Stiff upper lip......Terribly bad form to show any emotion old chap!

Frank Whittle.....Jet engine.

The song Jerusalem...still brings a tear to any Englishman's eye

The mentality that we're better than everyone else, even though we're blatently not!

Oh well, chin up!
