Top Ten Things that Great Britain Competes with the United States of America InThis is not a war. Okay...maybe a tiny friendly rivalry between two major countries. Vote Team GB or Team USA to the item(s) of your choice. You can add your own vs item that I may have missed.
Well, let's see... Just what was born in the USA? Oh, yeah; jazz (all varieties, to include ragtime, Dixieland and swing) blues (all varieties), honky tonk, rock 'n' roll, soul, R&B, rockabilly...
Okay, you helped out with rock, though some punk and new wave were more like payback for evicting
George III's gaudy Huns from the Land of the Free. But we're best buds now, right?
Gah...ok...look, I am willing to admit that my absolute favourite music genre is American -born (thank you for that by the way :)) but we have The Beatles (even if they are stake and hang over England like a mouldy stinking pizza), David Bowie Led Zep, Sex Pistols...ahh...why am I having to explain... Haha...
I gave you the vote for films and sports! What more do you want? British blood?! But...yah...sure, we're still best buds (or friends as the more elegant Brits would say) :P
Team GB - needs no explanation.
Every time I go to America, I get complimented on my accent. Why, thank you, but there are some British boys back home with even better ones.
I sound like a cross between Ramsay Bolton and Michael from I'm Alan Partridge. I kind of look a bit like Ramsay as well.
In America it's pronounced "Humor". Well, British and Americans are very different despite speaking the same language.
The Young Ones
I could go on, or I could watch one of those shows.
Team GB - deadpan humour is better than visionary slapstick.
Oh yeah! We got Pixar, Dreamworks Animation, Blue Sky Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and so much more!
British films are fine. American's are more in your face.
Well, then where's the "British" Hollywood?
Almost everything from america was based off of things in Britain. You have Rugby? We're calling it Football. You have Football? We're calling it soccor. You say "Zee"? Well guess what, we're not pronouncing it your way anymore! We're pronouncing it "Zed"!
Sometimes, American grammar astounds me. "I could care less", rather than "I couldn't care less". So, does that mean you care a little?
Hmm...I guess Team USA spell things a little less complicated. They tend to spell as they say them, which makes more sense.
Team US - hate it when Great Britain are against the US in swimming, diving, shooting...
Considering that Britain can get away with massive Angus burgers, Full English Breakfasts and other massive meals, without getting quite as tubby as the average American, we do make better food, with less adverse effects on one's health.
With that said, Britain is the second fattest country in Europe, second only to Germany. Both UK and USA eat too much.
You forgot one, V. French. But when all's said and done, no one really thinks about where it derived from. English is English.
*crack! * Oops...think I've just broken a couple of 'em...
Team GB - there is no such thing as an American language, however much the US have tried to change it.
No such thing as the American language? Say that to Sarah Palin.
"Immigrants to the US must speak American."
When you look at the highest ranked universities in the world, both countries dominate the charts, and both countries are met by people coming from all over the world to study there.
One reason that I'd recommend living in London is that many of the most prestigious universities in the world are virtually on your doorstep.
Used to be. Just like Harvard and Yale. Now they're all just incubators and disseminators of Newspeak and other revisionism.
Did you know that American people are dumber than GB because of their stupid education?
Dude Trump is so funny. As an American citizen, I enjoyed watching the liberal US media go out of their way to find ways to attack him. It was so funny how far they'd go. Plus it's important to note that the US president doesn't have a lot of power, but man do Trump and Johnson complete for best hair
"Won't let Muslims or Mexicans go to his country". Totally false, over 600,000 Mexicans were "legally" allowed into the USA in 2018. USA has 3.5 million Muslims, UK only 2.5 million. Maybe easier to get into the UK, but they don't want to go there.
Donald Trump sucks. He won't let Muslims or Mexicans go to his country. But Teresa May (and Her Majesty The Queen) lets anyone go to their country, as long as if they're not terrorists.
Team GB - both sexes are more natural.
Captain Pugwash came out of Britain and it's the greatest show ever created.
Gee, I wonder who added this here...
America had 9/11, the U.K. has had more terrorist attack than the state
