It’s easy to make fun of the Brits. I should know, I’m one myself! However, the whole ‘bad teeth’ thing that Americans appear to cling to is somewhat outdated by now, we have that sorted a while back and quite regularly visit the dentist now. Well most of us.
So why not have a dig at the fact that we invented a plethora of sports, which we now suck at? Or the brand new super expensive aircraft carrier we got, which has no aircraft and already sprung a leak? And what about this man, who represents us into the world as our Foreign Secretary? The list is practically endless. Luckily, the majority of us have a pretty deprecating sense of humor and are quite pleased to chuckle along too, so by all means, give us your very best shot.
Now, if you have to, you can add general hysteria and losing-of-shit over a little bit of lousy weather to the list. Egged-on by a sensationalist tabloid press, Brits have been depicted as a bunch of hopeless ninnies who are incapable of working as a society, as soon as but a single snowflake falls from the skies. And sadly, it’s all true.
Obviously, people from countries such as Canada, Switzerland, Norway and Russia, places where it gets like, really chilly, can only look on with incredulous pity at us whiny Brits, and wonder what the heck all the fuss is about. Those guys get it soo much worse than us, but life seems to go on just fine. What is our problem? Well, you see old chap, we just always seem to find the wrong type of snow. I guess, just unlucky!
Scroll down to see the way we were roasted by the world, and quite rightly so I might add. Oh, and feel free to have a pop at us in the comments also. Bring it!
