    I didn't know Jon Voight,Ned wasis face and Burt Reynolds were English :wink:

    Well well you learn something new every day thanks for that

    I suppose the septics proceeded to bore them to death with such notable chit chat as

    "We saved your ass in WW2"
    "Im an Oi-rish / Eye-talian American"*
    "Inside every Eye-raki is an American trying to get out"

    Delete as appropriate
  2. Hey, way to go...

    Is that Britain in Europe and is the IRA fighting in Falkland ?
  3. Thank you. I'd add that they've inherented the gene that makes the English inherently good dancers as well (as proof go to 2:57 in the video) .

    My associates and I would like to have a word with you Ian, Trevor, Colin or whatever your name is.

    I thought most redneck types were descended from Scots-Irish?

    Besides the English that went to the Americas were either the rejected dregs of society (often forcibly deported) or religious fanatics. Qualities that they seem to have retained.

    It's the same with the Dutch. The only reason they're so cool and laid back now is that 300 years ago they exported all their crazies to South Africa :D
  7. Is there a difference? :twisted:

    Actually I think they are a combination of Scots-Irish (Ulster Scots), English, Scottish and dash of Irish and Welsh.
  8. One can still see strong attributes of English and Scottish DNA in this one. :D
  9. Looked like Al Capone's Ma to me

  11. It was in the Sopranos that Italians stated that Italian Americans were even more classless and cheap than the Germans
