Human Icon (War3) The Preposterously Posh Parliamentary Thread

This is a thread to celebrate all things Britannia. I visited the Motherland last summer and had a great time. I was fortunate enough to be with my extended English family at their home in south London, having honest to God tea and motherfucking crumpets, and was watching it live when Andy Murray took the Wimbledon cup. Kicked the footie around in the back yard with the kids. Went to the park to check out the city skyline. Most. British. Day. Ever. Only thing that detracted from the British experience was the fact that it was sweltering hot and sunny. 10/10, would risk life and limb in the rental car driving those absurdly narrow streets again.



(Also, this a ploy to keep all limey bastards out of my Patriot Thread)

I enjoy Doctor Who and tea. I'm practically British.

I like the British. They are like the little America in Europe.

I ended up seeing London, Cambridge, York, Land's End, and Brighton in the first visit, and London (again), Cardiff, and Oxford on the second.

Cardiff's the capital of Wales. I went there on my own and asked about finding a restaurant that serves authentic Welsh cuisine. Turns out there are two in the entire city. I went to one, the Armless Dragon on Wyvern Street, and had a pretty decent meal of beef stew and vegetable podge.

I saw Stonehenge, which I must say is a bit of a disappointment. It's not the fault of the site itself. There's a big rope around Stonehenge, and you can't even get close to the place. I totally understand why they did that, but it doesn't make for an interesting trip.

Also, when I was being driven around by a native, I mentioned feeling a bit disoriented at being on the left side of the road. He said:

"On that case, does this feel better?"

and switched to the right side. Needless to say, I quickly got over my disorientation.

I also went punting in Cambridge. It's a really beautiful place.

Such statements are a good way to get one on the list of those folk who deserve a bit of borax in one's tea.

I'd do nothing of the kind. Regardless, borax wouldn't kill you. It would merely make your throat burn and give you a bit of nausea. A good household nauseator, if there ever was one.

Nevertheless, it is foolish to spout such inflammatory statements and not expect a caustic response!

Is it wrong to play a trick on the unscrupulous American, every once in a while? There is nothing like mischief to perk up one's spirits!

More accurately the United States (and Canada) is a big Britain in North America.

You foolish Americans were never worthy of such a title. Your country, so sullied it is, was established by the people we disdained and despised. The people that took away our theatres, our music and our ale! Scum! We have no use for such impurity!

We would never bequeath such a title to you, Americans. No! That is a right that has only been earned by our Canadian brothers-in-arms. They who have always remained loyal to the Crown will find a virtuous world within their grasp. God save the Queen, and may he also save Canada's fair domain from the treachery that is American imperialism.

We got some jelly europoors here. Don't worry, next time a war breaks out, we'll still save your asses.
