Thank God I'm only 50% English
Being British is about driving in a German car to an Irish pub for a Belgian beer, then travelling home, grabbing an Indian curry or a Turkish kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV
And the most British thing of all?
Suspicion of all things foreign!
Only in Britain can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.
Only in Britain do supermarkets make sick people walk all the way 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 do banks leave both doors open and chain the pens to the counters.
Only in Britain do we leave cars worth thousands of pounds on the drive and lock our junk and cheap lawn mower in the garage.
Only in Britain do we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.
Only in Britain are there disabled parking places in front of a skating rink.
NOT TO MENTION..
3 Brits die each year testing if a 9v battery works on their tongue.
142 Brits were injured in 1999 by not removing all pins from new shirts.
58 Brits are injured each year by using sharp knives instead of screwdrivers.
31 Brits have died since 1996 by watering their Christmas tree while the fairy lights were plugged in.
19 Brits have died in the last 3 years believing that Christmas decorations were chocolate.
British Hospitals reported 4 broken arms last year after Xmas cracker-pulling accidents.
18 Brits had serious burns in 2000 trying on a new jumper with a lit cigarette in their mouth.
A massive 543 Brits were admitted to A&E in the last two years after trying to open bottles of beer with their teeth.
5 Brits were injured last year in accidents involving out-of-control Scalextric cars.
In 2000 eight Brits were admitted to hospital with fractured skulls incurred whilst throwing up into the toilet.
If you're proud to be British, send this on!
Oh and as for the reason as to why we drive German cars, drink beer from Belgium, sit on Sweedish furniture and watch Japanese TVs:

Funny, but I've seen that one before... but with Yanks instead of Brits!
Has anyone else noticed that if you add negative rep, it still says "may you be lucky enough to receive the same reputation in return!"?
what green buckets?
The post says British, which, last time I checked included the Scottish
Sorry but i'm not British, i'm Scottish.
If we win.. we're british.. if we lose.. we're "scottish" :-)
Unfortunatly Ryan you are British though
Can I ask something here. How come there are around 5 million Scottish folk live in Scotland yet around 6 million Scotish folk live in England. If you hate us that much why don't you jack off back to your own country?
Oh, and stop putting Scottish stickers on the back of your cars - all that makes me think is your country has an identity crisis.
I think that's a bit strong.
It's not so much the Scottish hating the English or vice versa, it's just people having to have something to hate. Northerners moaning about southerners, Man City hating Man U fans.
Trust me most Scottish don't 'really' hate the English and vice versa, i've never had an issue while there and have Scottish friends who don't hate me (well most of the time :-)).
