Being British.......

BEING BRITISH IS ABOUT DRIVING IN A GERMAN CAR TO AN IRISH PUB FOR A BELGUM BEER, THEN ON THE WAY TO YOUR HOME GRABBING AN INDIAN CURRY OR A TURKISH KEBAB TO SIT ON A SWEDISH SOFA AND WATCH AMERICAN SHOWS ON A JAPANESSE TV.

AND MOST OF ALL BEING SUSPICIOUS OF ANYTHING FOREIGN.

OH AND ONLY IN BRITAIN CAN YOU GET A PIZZA TO YOUR HOME FASTER THAN AN AMBULANCE. ONLY IN BRITAIN DO BANKS LEAVE BOTH DOORS OPEN AND CHAIN PENS TO THE COUNTER.

ALSO SUPERMARKETS MAKE SICK PEOPLE WALK TO THE BACK OF THE SHOP FOR PRESCRIPTIONS WHILST HEALTHY PEOPLE GET THEIR FAGS AT THE FRONT OF THE SHOP.

WE MIGHT BE BRITISH, BUT MY, ARN'T WE A FUNNY LOT...??
