    What's with the British becoming total wimps after WWII? You conquered the world, had the most powerful civilization ever seen by humanity, had every child by age 12 able to recite by memory the entire known history of the world, and were expert hunters who brought forth gems like Holland & Holland, Webley & Scott, Jeffery, and Hensley & Gibbs which are still some of the most beautiful big game rifles ever made. You now barely hold onto a toenail's space and the once masters of the wild become a sniveling, miserable, subjugated lot doomed to the banal existance of barely knowing what trees are and are pathetically subjugated by those who believe any trace of your heritage to be barbaric and the people as a whole so utterly irresponsible and ignorant as to not be fit to even own a knife--and stupid enough to believe that they are advancing as a society by doing so. The once proudest race on Earth brings me to bitter tears by how horribly far they have fallen.

    For God's sake wake up. You are the people of Budica, Chaucer, St. George, Elizabeth I, Sir Francis Drake, Lord Nelson, and Winston Churchill. It is your duty to human kind to arise and break from these miserable and utterly disgraceful chains of socialism and domestication and become the English again, lest the world forget who you were entirely and without you as a lighthouse be broken upon the rocks and drowned in the sea. STOP EMBARASSING YOUR HISTORY AND THE HUMAN RACE. BECOME THE BRITISH EMPIRE AGAIN!

    crusty dragon

    British Slang

    Gosh mate, wipe off that crusty dragon before a hottie see's ya.


    LMAO!!!!!!!!!
    FYI, we tend to call them bogeys, rather than boogers! I'm sure that's a Simponism!

    Cake, served with tea, if earl grey, it comes with lemon, if plain tea, served with a little milk.

    We take death usually head on, biting the bullet so to speak.

    Bloody hell, good work Yellowfin!

    Okay, it all started when one of our colonies, lets call it America, decided they wanted emancipation, bless'em! From there on in, it all went Pete Tong. Australia followed suit, then all the pissy little countries no-one cares about. Today we look after a few small islands somewhere, and in order to boost our collective ego's, we boast about being leaders of the commonwealth. (For commonwealth read, countries we used to rule but now bow down to in order to import their heavily overpriced goods) Let's be frank though, we are an island nation, made of 4 seperate countries, that have been warring for centuries, ruled now by 3 governments, however, gun crime is virtually unheard of, the East-side, and the West-side meet harmoniously somewhere around Birmingham, rappers have a cheeky london accent, and no bullet wounds. Of course we have happy-slapping, road rage, fast food, and Gordon Brown. (Hell you've got the idiot Bush!)

    We have heralded some of the most famous people to have graced this planet, you forgot Shakespeare! We were masters of the seven seas, now our nuclear subs lie flaccid on the sea bed awaiting Bush's instruction to invade another oil producer. (BTW, my wife is related to Churchill, claim to fame there!) I could go on about what we have fought for and won, only to go on and lose, but there's no point. The once erect p3nis that was the British empire now lies limp on the belly of the world. An empire built on cups of tea (Lock, Stock) has crumbled. But, we are still a superpower, we are still proud. We may have Chavs (you will have to google that one!) but we're still BRITISH!

    And of course, the key thing here, especially for you yanks, is that without us, you wouldn't bloody be there! Same goes for you Aussies!

    To Ice or not to Ice, that is the question, Whether t'is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of a dodgy pop career.........................
