The Top Ten
I really can't decide about it - zxm
British singers have much more diverse voices, better genres, and the like. - Swellow
Team GB - needs no explanation. - Britgirl
So I see, V! ;) I clearly touched a tender nerve. One civilised English woman can never win a fight against a Neanderthal American male... Don't come looking for an apology, I can keep this up for days... - Britgirl
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. - IronSabbathPriest
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. - PositronWildhawk
I'd date girls with hot accents like Delevingne's. - Swellow
Team GB - we at least sound more cultured :P - Britgirl
In America it's pronounced "Humor". Well, British and Americans are very different despite speaking the same language.
I'm American, but I find British humor hilarious! - LordDovahkiin
But American humour is the best and that's very true - Ananya
Team GB - deadpan humour is better than visionary slapstick. - Britgirl
Britain has James Bond, we have John Wick
British films are fine. American's are more in your face.
Oh yeah! We got Pixar, Dreamworks Animation, Blue Sky Studios, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and so much more! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Hollywood is invincible - Ananya
Sometimes, American grammar astounds me. "I could care less", rather than "I couldn't care less". So, does that mean you care a little? - PositronWildhawk
Ever heard of "Old English? "
Hmm...I guess Team USA spell things a little less complicated. They tend to spell as they say them, which makes more sense. - Britgirl
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"! - SeeU
WOO! Go Team USA at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games! - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Team US - hate it when Great Britain are against the US in swimming, diving, shooting... - Britgirl
Team GB - there is no such thing as an American language, however much the US have tried to change it. - Britgirl
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... - Britgirl
No such thing as the American language? Say that to Sarah Palin.
"Immigrants to the US must speak American." - PositronWildhawk
Whoa... Walkin' on thin eggshells there, Beege. Might as well say there's no English language, as much of it was derived from German, Nordic, Latin and Greek.
America has McDonald’s, we have been son toast - Weirdest-thing
Britain wins over America in my opinion - TwilightKitsune
Team GB - I can't face those 'Merican Murder Burgers. - Britgirl
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. - PositronWildhawk
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?
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. - PositronWildhawk
Team GB - Oxford and Cambridge. Best universities in the world. - Britgirl
Team GB - both sexes are more natural. - Britgirl
Ok...! Alright! We need peace talks now. That comment, V was just plain silly. Everybody ('specially the Americans - yes, I'm a-talking' to you ;) ) need to lighten up.
Shall we pop off for some tea and crumpets...? :-) - Britgirl
If you mean your women don't shave their legs or armpits, and your men DO, then you might have something there. Don't know what, but SOMETHING.
Okay, Beege. Shall we enlist the Russians to mediate? ;) Granted, the comment was gratuitously stereotypical and a bit reactionary. But ya know, you were kinda comin' on like Genghis Khan. From "sweetheart" to "Neanderthal" in a couple days? Had to expect a "typically American" response. Alrighty, then. Back to normal (whatever that is).
Captain Pugwash came out of Britain and it's the greatest show ever created. - BrideiMacBella
America had 9/11, the U.K. has had more terrorist attack than the state - Weirdest-thing
"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.
Americans (past) chose president instead of prime minister.
Yeah, we don't have a president. But nothing's better than the current US president. - PositronWildhawk
Donald Trump > Hillary Clinton
- It would have been miserable if Hillary Clinton won.
Gee, I wonder who added this here... - ModernSpongeBobSucks
