Brits Say the Darndest Things

  1. I get some British Humor but not all of it.

    It's just like how It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia is one of the funniest shows ever if you're American, but Brits probably wouldn't understand most of the humor.
  2. With comedies such as Friends and those types of shows which makes us think American humour is crap. Although, American comedy movies and shows such as Family Guy or South park is top notch for comedic values.
  3. That's because FCC regulates (most) TV much more strictly than they do R or PG13 movies.
  4. The only good british humor is Benny Hill.
  5. Did you start with The Blackadder? Thats before Ben Elton got involved and probably the weakest of the 4 series. The other 3 are very different I would advise going to them. Blackadder II is very good, Blackadder the Third is good and Blackadder Goes Forth is probably the best.

    That is one of my Mum's favourite shows, there is a picture of her standing in front of Doc Martins house in Cornwall on the fireplace in her living room.

    Is this for real? Does anyone understand this? I only understand receipt, but to tell you the truth, I'm not really sure if I really do.
  7. Translations with regards to this pic.

    Moolah = Money/Cash

    The rest is basic Cockney rhyming slang.

    Sky Rocket = Pocket
    Rattle & Tank = Bank
    Charlie Sheen = Screen
    Fleet Street = Sheet
    Sausage & Mash = Cash

    Fuck knows what Huckleberry Finn Unlock means.
  8. Suck my big....maybe.
  9. Huckleberry Finn = pin, I'd venture.
  10. I think huckleberry finn change = pin change
  11. wow I'da' been 110% sure somebody was gettin arrested for statutory rape before having you all translate that, Cockney must be the most lude, sexiest language on the planet xD lol
  12. Somebody care to explain the British pantomime?
  13. It's like the theatre, only really really camp.

  14. lol they explain most of the English slang with more English slang
