Worst Things to Say to a Proud EnglishmanIf 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!
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.
Many centuries ago English people were convicts & moved to Australia by a boat. Accents sound similar!
I'm Sorry to you Wonderful Brits but I have actually messed this one up!
Please don't hurt me!
Many English people get this. It's not clever or funny...
Right - didn't really fight a war - they jumped in and fought a war along side the world war only because another country bombed them and retaliated by bombing innocent people. Not saying Britain didn't do bombing, but the Blitz was bad. America had a much bigger population in the world wars, but only 626,000 died compared to 1mil British with a smaller population. Bletchley Park played a huge role. No one single country one the world war. Admittedly, America had a large War, but other countries also played a substantial role, it wasn't just America.
Also very few English people own donkeys so we really didn't need our asses saved
This is going to raise the hackles of any proud Englishman - even the most placid of people.
My Dad said that he does not care a lot for specifically English foods and he is partly English.
Same thing if you said this To We Canadians!
No, I haven't got that around the wrong way...
Do the English really try to take credit for the work of an Italian sailing for the Spanish Crown?
Just humour us on this, please? We DID discover America, didn't we... ?
Um Britgirl Christopher Columbus got credit from the vikings doing it
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.
The worst thing you can do to even the most unpatriotic Englishmen is diss the empire.
What about the Royal Family from England?
It's the English language. Americans (hand on heart, God bless America and all that) only have an accent.
Darn too-tin they do. It's wah separates t'mericans from awl y'all animals!
Aren't all Americans, Aussies, Brits, Canadians, Scott's, Wales & Irish all have the same English!
Nothing wrong with Scotland, as long as you don't believe in the Loch Ness Monster.
It was either from the prehistoric or a myth.
The English may as well hotfoot it to Jockland as they're all over here...
I drink coffee. I like Costa Coffee.
Do you realise all this stupid rain is why we don't have Spring breaks and shorter summer school and college holidays (vacation)?
We have bank holidays Spring break is like Easter.
Summer is Late July- Early September.
