Reply SRSteue on November 30, 2012 at 2:16 am I love the bowler hat on Bug, it’s a nice touch. Also the curved pipe is definitely more English than a simple L shaped pipe. Well done, ol’ chap, that’s givin’ ’em what for ol’ bean! *puff*puff* Reply ECKY on November 30, 2012 at 3:42 am Why haven’t I thought of that before? Bloody brilliant. Reply Dave Dell on November 30, 2012 at 6:22 am Plus Chicks are enraptured by a man with a British accent. Reply Nikki on December 1, 2012 at 5:09 am Personally, I prefer Scottish accents… By that might just be for David Tennant… *swoon* Reply jamie d on November 30, 2012 at 7:46 am wait – you all think that having a British accent makes you sound intelligent? And girls like it? That’s it, i’m moving over there. I do have to add that you have obviously never heard a Birmingham accent. And that we call smoke breaks fag breaks. Reply R. E. Hunter on November 30, 2012 at 10:08 am Just watch the differences in slang – a fag break would have a whole different meaning in North America, and might not go over well 8^) Reply Rhea on November 30, 2012 at 11:44 am Also do some slang research on “rubber” and “knocked up” and the name “Randy”. Not sure about a Brummie accent, but Cockney might sound cute rather than intelligent. Yorkshire would probably just sound like Martian. Reply MadonnaC on November 30, 2012 at 9:13 pm A Bummie Accent works *wonders* – It doesn’t have the stigma that it has in the UK (From a brummie who has been in the US for 14 years) Reply qka on December 3, 2012 at 8:25 pm In general, accents work “wonders” better in countries other than where they are from. Cockney in the US? OK! Cockney in the UK? Not so. Reply Ron on December 5, 2012 at 2:14 pm No, people just like Posh accents, or Scottish (See David Tennant). Cockney is the fun one that people do, and it’s surprisingly similar to mine (Michigan’s), most noticeably with the t glottalization. Reply Rekeiji on November 30, 2012 at 7:50 am As a full blooded Englishman I can honestly say that this is an accurate portrayal of my countrymen and our work ethic Reply littlemissjoker on November 30, 2012 at 7:56 am I’m British and yes, that’s EXACTLY what it’s like here ^_Q Reply Rhea on November 30, 2012 at 11:47 am in some TV series, the Nazis were going to parachute spies into Britain and outfit them in bowlers and plus-fours so they’d blend in…. Reply Zincite on November 30, 2012 at 8:21 am Wait, you don’t have incessant tea breaks? How do you survive in such a terrible world? Reply Kapus on November 30, 2012 at 9:46 am Jolly good comic today, Adam. Smashing, I do say. Reply Shaun on November 30, 2012 at 10:13 am As a British person, I approve of this. Except saying ‘college’ would be a give-away 😉 However I’ll never cease to be amazed at how many Americans think “tea time” literally means a dedicated space of the day where we drink tea. It’s just another term for dinner/supper/whatever you say for evening meal. Reply Jeff on December 4, 2012 at 1:20 pm It’s “university” right? Not college. I say, I do believe I’m getting the hang of it! Jolly good show, old bean! Reply Col Klink on April 6, 2013 at 12:11 am What are you frickin talkin about? Tea-time is 4pm. It’s in the Magna Carta. Reply Random on November 30, 2012 at 10:22 am Like a sir! Reply LanceThruster on November 30, 2012 at 10:41 am Saw an author of a Winston Churchill bio on the telly and couldn’t help but notice the horrible teeth. Doesn’t their national healthcare cover dental? Reply Abbii on December 3, 2012 at 7:48 am The NHS does cover dental care, but some older people didn’t bother with it/dental care was much more lackadaisical in previous years. It’s pretty good now. Should also take into account, though, that teeth-whitening and the like are extremely unusual in Britain, and we don’t consider slightly wonky teeth to be a big issue like some people seem to in the US; we prefer our teeth a little more natural. Just a cultural thing really. Reply Davidk9292 on November 30, 2012 at 11:39 am …I’m going to try my damndest not to rage over the inaccurate use of the term “British” here. It’s funny, and Adam is clearly skilled, no need to get worked up… Reply Sam on November 30, 2012 at 12:46 pm I’ve pretended to be English when going to auditions before, so the directors would think I was “perfect for the part” before even hearing me do the lines. Reply Invisibules on November 30, 2012 at 3:54 pm you do know that we English would never take tea without having a biscuit to dunk in it, do you not? Reply Jeff on December 4, 2012 at 1:19 pm And by “Biscuit” you mean cookie, do you not? Reply Ron on December 5, 2012 at 2:16 pm You mean TARDIS self-destruction devices? Reply Luke on December 4, 2012 at 7:13 am I’m British and I approve this message. Reply MrSnow on December 8, 2012 at 5:42 pm hahahaah smoke break Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
