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!
The Top Ten
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
Many English people get this. It's not clever or funny... - Britgirl
My Dad said that he does not care a lot for specifically English foods and he is partly English. - Powell
No, I haven't got that around the wrong way... - Britgirl
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 - FefeCat
This is going to raise the hackles of any proud Englishman - even the most placid of people. - Britgirl

WWI RMS Lusitania was torpedoed, WWII Pearl Harbour.
Same thing if you said this To We Canadians! - Curti2594
DO NOT EVER SAY THIS! We don't look good when we cry! - Britgirl
Do the English really try to take credit for the work of an Italian sailing for the Spanish Crown?
Um Britgirl Christopher Columbus got credit from the vikings doing it - Jake09
Just humour us on this, please? We DID discover America, didn't we... ? - Britgirl
The worst thing you can do to even the most unpatriotic Englishmen is diss the empire.
That would only annoy them because people aren't actually really all that proud of it. It wouldn't annoy them because they were proud of it, it would embarrass them as they know what it was built upon - FefeCat
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
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
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.
Ah, the Highlands; where the REAL men live.
The English may as well hotfoot it to Jockland as they're all over here... - Britgirl
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)

Summer is Late July- Early September.
I hate stereotypes 😤
