Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgium beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV. And the most British thing of all? Suspicion of all things foreign! Only in Britain can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance. Only in Britain do supermarkets make sick people walk all the way to the back of the shop to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front. Only in Britain do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a DIET coke. Only in Britain do banks leave both doors open and chain the pens to the counters. Only in Britain do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds on the drive and lock our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage. Not to mention... 3 Brits die each year testing if a 9v battery works on their tongue. 142 Brits were injured in 1999 by not removing all pins from new shirts. 58 Brits are injured each year by using sharp knives instead of screwdrivers. 31 Brits have died since 1996 by watering their Christmas tree while the fairy lights were plugged in. 19 Brits have died in the last 3 years believing that Christmas decorations were chocolate. British Hospitals reported 4 broken arms last year after Xmas cracker-pulling accidents. 18 Brits had serious burns in 2000 trying on a new jumper with a lit cigarette in their mouth. A massive 543 Brits were admitted to A&E in the last two years after trying to open bottles of beer with their teeth. 5 Brits were injured last year in accidents involving out-of-control Scalextric cars. and finally... In 2000 eight Brits were admitted to hospital with fractured skulls incurred whilst throwing up into the toilet. _________________ If you want to be a snitch and tell all your mates, go ahead, I won't stop you.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN US AND THEM IS EVEN AFTER ALL THESE FAULTS AND MISHAPS (PROBABLY AS A RESULT OF SQUADDIE MISHAPS AND GENERAL BLOCK PARTY TOMFOOLERY), IS THAT THERE WERE NO FCUKING LAWSUITS AND NO-ONE GOING TO THE LAWYERS,. BRITS TAKE IT ON THE CHIN, SAY IT ONCE, SAY IT LOUD, I'M A BRIT, AND I'M PROUD!!!
