    "Plain and simple, the British were the only ones to ever own America, except for those thieving injuns."

    I love it!

    It's a recycle from last year, but it's time to dust it off again.

    Recycle or not, that was funny as hell.

    Although I think Posh Spice is one hell of a hot English export. And Liz Hurley.

    SCHWING!

    There was a comedian talking about how they don't teach American Revolution in school over in England. Not sure if he was completely joking or not?

    Being a product of English and Irish heritage, I've often thought of Great Britain as the "mother country."

    Three summers ago while touring Northern Europe and the British Isles, we found ourselves in London on July 4th. At the time, England's "football" (soccer) team was engaged in the World Cup finals. There were parties and celebrations practically everywhere. While at a pub enjoying a pint of Guinness with fish & chips, I jokingly asked if the English were celebrating July 4th? After a brief pause, the meaning finally sunk in and was not well received. I thought it was funny, until my wife reminded me I was unarmed, as per local custom.

    Anyway, the English team got it's butt kicked, by Italy I think.

    I've got a few British family members. They really don't teach much of it. There's just a small section in one or two history books about our revolt and they largely focus on the battles that England won.

    Hey lucky you got outta there alive mate :D


    Soccer is the religion that trumps 'religion' in the UK, so if they got beaten by Italy, it could have turned really ugly...even without the 4th July crack lol

    We did the American Revolution quickly in one afternoon, just to say we'd been 'taught' it. Of it I remember very little I'm afraid to say...it wasn't in our exams that term.

    Whereas we did interminable hours of doomed outback explorers dying in deserts etc...and diggers dying in foreign wars for England :p
