    Our England an American's view

    An American tourist's thoughts on the way us Brits are compared to them.
    Some really tickled me.....Top of the list "Almost everyone is very polite" and we are.......normally.
    "You’d better like peas, potatoes and sausage"
    "They eat with their forks upside down"
    "Obama is considered a hero, Bush is considered an idiot."
    "Instead of turning the heat up, you put on a jumper"

    There other gems amongst them, whats your favourite ?
    I thought I knew more than this until I opened my mouth

    All I know is that I love the British Isles and Ireland.

    Excess cider consumption can be very painful.
    I learned THAT the hard way.

    I read this this morning on Facebook. Very amusing. Never thought though that anyone would find our food " generally outstanding "

    Your cider is really just apple juice.

    Compared to what I sampled in three short weeks in the US, our food is brilliant.

    Wasn't talking about "our Cider"
    Twice I enjoyed "Your Cider", once to some level of excess.
    The next day was, at best, rather unpleasant.

    We all have our specialities that don't reall travel.

    Faggots....I love 'em but not sure Americans are tempted.
    Chitterlings, Braun .....again I love 'em. Got that from me Dad
    Jellied eels.....yup

    On the other hand, I don't like American chocolate and I've heard the cheese is pretty awful...all processed and stuff
    Don't get me started on Budweiser....ugh. Wretched stuff.
    I met an American once who didn't understand fried bread, at all.
