Being a true Brit

When it was Chris's birthday I bought him a card about being a true Brit.

We both thought it was very funny. Hope you do too.

Only in Britain can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.

Only in Britain do supermarkets make sick people walk to the back of the shop to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.

Only in Britain do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries and a DIET coke.

Only in Britain are there disabled parking places in front of an ice skating rink.

and finally:-

Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish Pub for a Belgian beer then on the way home grabbing an Indian curry or a Chinese takeaway, then sitting on your Swedish furniture watching American t.v show on a Japanese television.

What is so funny about it is that it is sooo true!

I think that this is a hang over from the Empire days when we got used to everything foreign.

Still at least we can laugh at ourselves!

Thought for today. Can you laugh at yourself?

Joke for today: Why was the Egyptian girl worried? Because her daddy was a mummy!

On this day 18th October
In 1989 San Francisco suffered an earthquake.
In 1922 The BBC was formed.
In 1931 Thomas Edison died

Best wishes
John Beaumont
