Proud to be British?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
You should be very PROUD to be British because...

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.



NOT TO MENTION...



3 Brits die each year testing if a 9v battery works on their tongue.

142 Brits were injured in 2002 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 2001 eight Brits cracked their skull whilst throwing up into the toilet.



Makes you soooooo proud don't it?!?!


God Save The Queen....and Prince Charles when they're pulling crackers at Christmas.

    That's what I was going to ask. I used to do that, when I was about 6.

    But R&S, if you think all those things happen only in Britain you're long asleep...

    Re: the battery

    Someone I know emptied the black stuff from an industrial battery and snorted it like coke. Obviously he isn't a friend... but he isn't dead. I'm not quite sure how he isn't dead though!

    I dunno how a 9v battery could kill you. 9v aint much, neither is the current.

    Maybe if you put it on your tongue, got a shock, then swallowed it by mistake...

    :eek:

    In the supermarkets near me, the pharmacie section is as you walk in the door, slightly infront, and to the right of the cigarette counter. :p

    Anyway, most sick people go to the doctors, and then to the chemist to get their presciption.

    I'm sure you could dig up retarded facts about any other country too. (Yes twisted_trinity, that does include Spain.) So yes, I'm proud to be british. ;)

    TBH, if you were on a diet you wouldn't go into McDonalds really. Diet Coke Don't taste the same as fat Coke plus it has less sugar (which is obvious) and slightly less caffeine.
