What Is Unique About The UK?

Wed May 07, 2003 10:54 pm

What do you think?

Maybe its the unique way in which four nations share one state without arguing over it for nearly 300 years?  Wink/being sarcastic

Maybe its the way we all applaud each others football teams when they are each doing well.  Laugh out loud

Maybe its the way we all love the same Royal Family  Yeah sure

Or maybe its cos we all just love getting blootered out of our brains  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up

Scotty said in the "What is unique about the USA" thread:

What is unique is the incredible amount of time you all spend analysing yourselves. Why?

Now i'm wondering the same.

Flight152: I think it's our unique sense of irony.

Yes, Irony, or maybe its satire?

Of course, I'm sure satire is just irony used for humour, but still, we brits are incredibly good at it. I'm quite amused that Flight152 got drawn in though  Laugh out loud

That they made their language number 1 over the planet, which is a really good achievement for a small island[s] nation....
From New Yorqatar to Califarbia...

Irony
Satire
Greasy chips (with fish)
Eurofighters without cannons
Inventing numerous games, and then loosing against the Aussies

On a more positive side:  Big grin
Excellent manners, even on the road!!!
