Call me what you want, but it just seemed less cute because they're British. I mean, the accent is adorable, but the content was boring.

The stiff upper lip bit seems to be in the Brit DNA. Keep calm and carry on.

he should punch that biatch in the mouth.
 
2012-10-14 03:04:46 PM  
He was nine or ten, or maybe eight.

Gabriel, think about it. Ignore your wise-ass big sister and go and punch the 10, maybe 9 or 8 year old boy in the face. And then kick him in the nuts as hard as you've ever kicked any boy in the nuts before.

Otherwise you'll grown-up gay. NTTAWWT. But still, your sister will just give you her dolls as presents every Christmas. And you don't want that, do you?

I would punch that girl right in the hoo-haa and tell HER to toughen up a bit.

Hey at least they know how to run down and murder a guy in the subway when he doesn't understand why a madman with a gun is chasing him.

2012-10-14 03:27:31 PM  
Ok, I'm going to be the normal one here, and say- oh, how cute. She speaks so well, and what she's saying means she has good parents.

Not internet normal, though. That would be- staged! or How could you put your kids up on you tube?
 
2012-10-14 03:28:08 PM  
I see a few of you have had big sisters.
 
2012-10-14 03:31:25 PM  
Get used to it kid.

somebody get her an easy-bake oven and tell her to get to work

Thanks to her accent, I managed to understand one out of every three of those words, and Google sadly doesn't have an English to English translator option.

I find that middle class English children are incredibly precocious. Treating children like little adults as soon as they can walk makes them into little adults. It's both impressive and a little sad. But all the same, this is one of the most impressive cases of Big Sister Syndrome I have ever seen.

The four year old could be at a nine or eight year old level even by British standards. The two-three year old boy is clearly not thinking at the same level as his sister, but he is listening and distressed by the lecture, so he's clearly ahead of the curve.

On the other hand, watching Karl Pilkington and his tormentors, Steve Demerchant and Ricky Gervais suggests that a lot of people in the UK are still functioning on a childish level as adults. There is probably a greater spread in moral, intellectual and cultural attainment and socialization there than anywhere in the world. It's focused by a powerful class system but I don't believe that it is caused by class. The juvenile and adult behaviour cuts across classes and other cultural, institutional, behavioural and ideational lines, with Eton boys and steet waifs just as variable.

Great Britain would be a wonderful laboratory for anthropologists and others if they could just contrive to be invisible and not alter the subject of study.

You mean English to American, right. I managed to figure it out without any problems, unlike me trying to type this on my phone.

I think England should turn the tables in them and decide themselves to dissolve the union.

We need them much less than they need us. Or actually, not at all.

You do know that kids that are upwards of 23+ months apart can be 4 and 3 during part of the year, right?

2012-10-14 04:17:51 PM  
She's taken the programming quite well, IMO...
 
2012-10-14 04:18:58 PM  
I'm sure her mother isn't a coont at all. No chance.
 
2012-10-14 04:21:03 PM  
I haven't the foggiest idea what she was saying.

close captioning, please

/with the aft-mentioned brit-american translation
 
2012-10-14 04:30:58 PM  
That was stupid and those kids are older.
 
2012-10-14 04:34:45 PM  
I got a different read on what she was saying- I had the impression that she was trying to tell him that he couldn't fight a kid that much older than him until he had grown more and toughened up a bit. I didn't think she was calling him a weenie.

My mom had 3 boys from October 1968 to April 1972 and we are not Irish.

We are American, of Scot descent.

Some say she deserved a medal.

Not sure about that.

You might have had a point if you'd mentioned the London riots or chav culture, but those three guys are funny as hell. Have you been to the Sports tab and seen the number of comments the WWE threads get? Honey Boo Boo ring a bell?

Karl Pilkington was a character that they intentionally exaggerated for comedic effect. It worked. Those three men were motivated to act out for attention and ratings to get a response. Why you would consider that an example of real British people is beyond me. No country has the monopoly on ignorance.

She was, but in the nicest terms I've ever heard from a child that small.

/Actually, everybody on Outnumbered is a mouthy twat.

I blame Doctor Who for this crap. If he would explain that they are just "another" companion and not "The" companion,then this type of thing wouldn't be happening.

/Sad to see Rory was this beaten at such a young age

Amazing locution and vocabulary for such a young girl, very cool!
