A friend posted this to Facebook and it did make me smile! Had to share it with you!
This did make me laugh: Buzzfeed’s 21 Brilliant British People Problems. Don’t miss #16!
For your Wednesday viewing pleasure … a funny dog video and yes, while the owners are American, the dog is pure English.
Thanks, Liz, for the tip!
You’ve probably seen this on Facebook, but I’m posting it, for laughs. I should add that I am glad Obama got renominated and I don’t think we need the Queen! x
To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately.
(You should look up ‘revocation’ in the Oxford English Dictionary.)
Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas, which she does not fancy).
Your new Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.
These days, my ears are accustomed to British English. There aren’t too many expressions that I haven’t heard. But this weekend, well, I discovered a new one:
Skipping rope is the British equivalent to jump rope.
Yes, I laughed when I heard it. Jump rope just seems practical, no nonsense. It’s the kind of manly exercise that Arnold Schwartzenegger does in a gym, quickly shedding pounds. Skipping rope just sounds downright whimsical. The kind of pastime that cannot be done without bobby socks, pigtails, a kitten and maybe a bike with a bell and a basket in the background.
Now, I would normally not read reviews of Veet for Men hair removal gel creme on Amazon.co.uk, but this little nugget of comedy gold did make it into my Facebook stream, and I will admit that I was crying with laughter when I stumbled upon it and began reading.
It appears that many Brits (or at least one British comedy writer using various guises) have used Veet where Veet was not intended.
NSFW. Read on….
