Bacon in your land scares me. It's stretchy. Ours is crisp.


We have crispy bacon too - it's called streaky. The difference is that we Brits benefit from also having easy access to back (which is the most popular cut) and middle bacon, which is something I don't think you Stateside peeps have the luxury of in most of your grocery stores (correct me if I'm wrong, though). The other thing to consider is one of average national taste - Americans like bacon to be cooked to the point of shattering when you put a fork into it (which is how I like it too, as it happens), whereas most Brits like it cooked just to the point where the fat has begun to crisp up, but not so much that the meat has been overcooked (which, technically, bacon in America is).



We have center cut and stuff like that. I just look for pepper bacon and all is well in my bacon world.

I was puzzled the other day by the new term Uneven Bars for the Asymetric Bars in the gymnastics and they changed it apparently because the word Asymetric was confusing the Americans.

Now i fond this to be quite condesending to Americans. All through my life if i came across a word i didnt understand I looked it up, I didn't demand it to be changed so it didnt hurt my brain.

Surely instead of changing words maybe we should let people struggle until they fucking use some initiative and look it up for themselves, I dont know on the internet or something its not difficult.

I've never heard of the bars being called anything but uneven.

I think loppy bars sounds better. We should go with that to avoid this war between our countries.

I had a burger, recently, from a place called Texas BBQ or something. What I did was order the burger but I ordered bacon, cheese, onions, more bacon, more cheese and BBQ sauce. Now some people hate Americans they blame them for the lots of different things not electing Martin Sheen, improving their television, hating on the French and wading into conflicts claming they won the fucker, but if I'm going to have a burger... well if I'm going to eat a burger... if I am going to sit down and eat a mother fucking American son-of-a-gun, shoot up my high school, the shit, made of 100% of something, on an outdoor wide open grassland plain, indian killing mother fucker of a burger. I was to Americanise that fucker.

And I will not apologise about it (except for my cultural reference or my profanity)

I just had a bison burger with a thick slice of Wisconsin cheddar, thick hickory smoked bacon and onion marmalade. It was a great lunch. Even with only eating half, I feel full and sleepy. It's only 2pm.

Why is that unacceptable either? Jamacian culture, from reggae to rudeboy culture has been a influence of british culture on and off since about 1968. Surely this is just the latest influence of that? I don't really understand why being influenced by other cultures is such a bad thing, really.


I'm not saying it is...Its the tough guy posturing thats employed whilst talkin all "gangsta" that I cant be bothered with.

It also sounds annoying. No reason why, it just irritates me. Like that flatmate who means well but just can't do anything right in your eyes.

Can't stand the word 'bro' or it's retard cousin 'brah'. Calling people 'dogs' is pathetic as well...and excessive hand movements while talking.

In an attempt to cut down on Americanisms, I've been replacing all my Z's with S's.

On the downside, I now go to bed and wake up feeling deflated.

I heard a teenager walking along the road the other day (and yes it was the road even though there was a pavement) use the word "swag" (in the context of having a lot of desirable goods and clothing) the other day. Now unless you are wearing a stripy shirt a domino mask and have a bag with swag written upon it such a term should not be used.
