a cut and paste special

i know its lazy but i thought it was amusing:

Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian 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 anything foreign.!!
Oh and...

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.

Only in Britain ... do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.

Only in Britain ... are there disabled parking places in front of a skating rink.

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 cracker pulling accidents.

101 people since 1999 have had broken parts of plastic toys pulled out of the soles of their feet.

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 opening 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 cracked their skull whilst throwing up into the toilet.

Ok, you are right, England is shit but:

Only in Britain:

Does the population take eurovision to be a laugh, not a serious event that you have to win and get one up on your neighbours

Do the dogs become mans best friend, not walk the streets looking for the next victim

Do the athletes admit taking drugs, rather than running away on a scooter, crashing, blaming the coach, blaming the governing bodies, blaming the public, blaming the press, blaming anyone than yourself.

Do the trains run late, or not at all. But don't - sink of piss, get driven by mad drunks, stop at leval crossings, go 5 miles an hour, still run on diesel

Do the woman get harrased by builders, BUT NOT OPENLY: leered at, spat on, wanked at, molested, jeered and sold as hard core sex objects on EVERY corner.

Does the smog last for a couple of hours, not all year round.

Do the toliets usually work,....does Greece or Cyprus have ANY toliets ? Sorry, they do, its the streets !

Keep ancient relics, not give them away, sell them or blow them up
