Top Ten Myths About British PeopleTime to put these myths to bed (with a nice hot cup of tea).
The Top Ten
I only had buckteeth and it was in the family but I had braces, and bedtime headgear.
You have been watching the Jeremy Kyle show too much.
Who said anything about us having bad teeth?!?! And, if that theory exists, is that the biggest stereotype there is of Britain? I think not. - PositronWildhawk
Not so. Everyone I speak to has a lovely white smile
No we're not ALL blessed with being able to speak the Queen's English darling, just us chosen few. Now go away, pleb! - Britgirl
There are so many different accents, we can't possibly all be posh.
Obviously not or why are we known for liking our beer a little too much?
Not all of us are in favour of the monarchy
Only Scotland hates everyone
Only scotland truly hates everyone else, England, Wales and N. Ireland all have rivalries in sport (and sometimes the sports fans take it too far) but we all get along just fine. DESTROY SCOTLAND!
I haven't met anyone who hates Americans. I certainly don't.
We actually quite like you lot.
Disney is American, and we like Disney. And most of us have Apple too...
Can't stand them. Much prefer croissants, the tasty French alternative. Which goes to show we don't hate France either. - PositronWildhawk
Untrue. I have never put a one of those yuk things in my mouth
Crumpets are nothinig like croissants.
I hate football as much as a football fan is generally stupid. And stats show that almost half of Brits hate it. - PositronWildhawk
NO WE DO NOT!
I cannot possibly concur. The British SOH is dryer than a shepherd's sandal! Or some other dry thing! - Britgirl
Agree. Lee Evans is the funniest man on the planet! - Britgirl
In fact it's a bit wet around the edges.
My favorite comic, Lee Evans, is British - Danielsun182
Just because we don't yell UK UK UK! like Americans yell USA USA USA! Does not mean we are not patriotic.
I absolutely LOVE Britain/England with a severe passion. I'm so proud of what this tiny nation has achieved. Have you seen the many thousands of proud, flag-waving, people who come together on special occasions? I am also a devout royalist. I could be here all day talking about this but my tea and crumpets are getting cold. - Britgirl
Yes we are. Every single household has something with the British flag on it.
No we bloody don't! This is so bloody untrue. Who bloody told you this? Well take it from me, they're bloody wrong. BLOODY CHEEK! - Britgirl
Ha! Who put this? I hold my hand up to being the typical Brit (minus the 'bad teeth') without shame. I have this as a fridge magnet and as poster on my bedroom wall. It makes me smile. Every time I look at it. - Britgirl
The men wear...? There are myths and there are MYTHS! Haha! Bowler hats indeed! - Britgirl
