Yup, perfectly sums up my experiences with the British.
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*
Why haven’t I thought of that before?
Plus Chicks are enraptured by a man with a British accent.
Personally, I prefer Scottish accents… By that might just be for David Tennant… *swoon*
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.
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^)
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.
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)
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.
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.
As a full blooded Englishman I can honestly say that this is an accurate portrayal of my countrymen and our work ethic
I’m British and yes, that’s EXACTLY what it’s like here ^_Q
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….
Wait, you don’t have incessant tea breaks? How do you survive in such a terrible world?
Jolly good comic today, Adam. Smashing, I do say.
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.
It’s “university” right? Not college. I say, I do believe I’m getting the hang of it! Jolly good show, old bean!
What are you frickin talkin about? Tea-time is 4pm. It’s in the Magna Carta.
Like a sir!
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?
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.
…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…
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.
you do know that we English would never take tea without having a biscuit to dunk in it, do you not?
And by “Biscuit” you mean cookie, do you not?
You mean TARDIS self-destruction devices?
I’m British and I approve this message.
hahahaah smoke break
