Sandwich Spread

The flippin' Yankees are trying to barge their way into yet another British institution and failing miserably, again. They can't make tea and they can't make sandwiches either (mainly because they don't know how to bake bread).

Next they'll be trying to claim an American stole the secret recipe for scones and that only they make true scones or that black pudding was originally brought back from the Americas by Columbus.

There are times when I think kicking the rogues out of the Commonwealth was the best thing we ever did, most of the time I'm certain of it, only a bunch of heathens would through boxes of perfectly good tea into the sea.

(Note to any US readers: please observe the heavy hint of sarcasm that threads its way through this post, the rest of the world knows you don't get irony -- it's well documented -- but I'm not so sure how well you get sarcasm either.)

    Ah, that appeared to be the plugin that replaces acronyms automatically for me, I've had to disable it temporarily until I find a better solution (it shouldn't do it in links).

    Cool - works now! - guy is still a dolt though! - more tea & butties please!

    Nothing bests appalingly cooked cheap bacon in a steam baked bargain loaf bread, added to with acidic & chemical tomato sauce to make the epitomy of superb English fast food, all washed down with a well stewed styrofoam cup of milky tea - Food for heroes!!!!

    The demise of the greasy spoon will be a sad day for all in the UK, they're getting rarer even now, maybe they should attach spoons to the side with a chain in Starbucks for when you're adding your milk and sugar to get that 'authentic' atmosphere.
