Fat Englishman here…
Well, according to BBC Anglophenia’s list of what we all indulge in when gathered together, there’s no end of characteristic conversational niceties we display – and they’re all very recognisable. Though I have to say, I feel that our American brethren are just as weather-obsessed as we are. Perhaps more so, as the weather in America can be decidedly more extreme . No tornadoes and ice storms back in blighty thank you very much.
To my mind, one omission from the list is the discussion of British versus American news – particularly television news which the average Brit regards as something of an oxymoron in the US.
Anyway, what say you? Is the list complete? What have they missed out?
