If you don't want to be scowled at from a great height, DON'T say any of these things. What! I'm trying to help you!

The Top Ten

1 Your accent...what part of Australia are you from?

There was actually a guy I met face to face who assumed I was American because I have an ever so slightly deep and strong voice. I felt slightly miffed. - PositronWildhawk

I'm Sorry to you Wonderful Brits but I have actually messed this one up!

Please don't hurt me! - Curti2594

6 I prefer the look of the American flag
7 Christopher Columbus didn't discover America

Just humour us on this, please? We DID discover America, didn't we... ? - Britgirl

8 Great Britain no longer has an empire

9 GREAT Britain? Pah!

Hello anonymous slater of GREAT Britain. I rather fancy you are using my list just to say cruel things about the country I adore. Carry on, old chap with every comment you add you are boosting the voting figures on my lists! And for that, I am truly thankful. Have a beautiful day! - Britgirl

There is a reason why the word GREAT exists in front of Britain. Get used to it. It's been difficult but we managed it. - Britgirl

10 Do you speak American?

It's the English language. Americans (hand on heart, God bless America and all that) only have an accent. - Britgirl

Darn too-tin they do. It's wah separates t'mericans from awl y'all animals! - PositronWildhawk
