Top Ten British Stereotypes


The Top Ten

1 We all drink tea

This is the only true one. We are all addicts! - gemcloben

Sad but true. I would say mainly in England though. - HollyRolo

I must be British

Don't forget the fish and chips!

2 We all wear top hats and single-lens glassed with chains

We only wear single-lens glasses to parties and funerals. Other wise we wear strictly three-lens glasses

Maybe about 200 years ago - HollyRolo

3 Everyone's accent is amazing

That's a stereotype I have! But well, not every British can be like the amazing Britgirl! I guess we just met the top british citiziens here in The Top Tens! - keyson

4 British people are from England and English people are from London

I am from England, I have never been to London.
I live in the North.
Yes the dreaded so-called unhealthy North.

When foreigners say all that crap, I go insane. - PositronWildhawk

5 We say stuff like "Good day to you sir" and "Jolly good"

How jolly offensive! - TwilightKitsune

Sometimes we say that, not always though - SansTheComic

Oh, good day HollyRolo. Jolly good list I must say! May I get back to my tea now? It's getting jolly cold! - Britgirl

And sometimes "U wot m8? ", sadly... - Entranced98

I would find this very offensive

I'm NOT British myself, but I know that most of them (British people) have very good teeth.
