You're right, Vanilla Ice references are waaaaaaaaaay over the head of the average big, slow Yank.

I liked the safety test one.  That's a correct answer.

For those of you unfamiliar with the English slang term "nonce" it means child molester....

Katy just got with Russel because Travie McCoy didn't PO her parents enough.

The English sense of humor is really strange.
It's peepee caca doodoo jokes or PG Wodehouse, with nothing inbetween.

"What did one welfare queen say to the other welfare queen?"

"Gee, T'shabo, I really wish the government would end the public welfare system so I could get a low-paying job doing menial labor and never see my kids or help them with anything again, thus perpetuating a class system that keeps wealthy white people in control of everything, the way God intended as revealed to us by the writings of St. Reagan the Deregulator."

The images are taking so long to load they make me wish for a slide show. And for some reason, under the headline

Prepare To Fall In Love With These Woolly Donkeysthere's a picture of a fausse blonde hugging a black guy.Of all the images that could load first, it had to be that one. I am assuming that there is an unloaded picture of adorable woolly donkeys that hasn't loaded yet.

Yeah, came here to say this.  I'm not British, but as far as I could tell they were all pretty much anybody or nobody, regardless of nationality.

I mean, there was the one with the necklaces that spelled out a "dirty" word (number 14).  I guess if you had no idea what that word was, but I would think most native English speakers from any country would recognize it.  Though they mentioned the ad ran in Alabama  so I guess the joke is supposed to be that Alabamans don't know that word.

I thought the slang term for a child molester was  a Peter File.

Rhotacism, is there anything she can't do?

I'm sure somebody will also get the IT Crowd reference.

They're making one last episode. I wonder if they will take the opportunity to kill off all the characters the way they usually do at the end of a Britcom (Blackadder, Bottom, The Young Ones) Or perhaps somebody will find romance and love. Jen & the Boss, Douglas Reynholm? Moss and his Irish buddy Roy? The weird Goth guy, Richmond, and Russell Brand?

Local Lady Gardener?  Is it funny because it is a "lady gardener"?

What's the deal with the British and ridiculously small cars?

If I saw something like that on the roads, I would give it the nickname "Mr. Magoo".

Any British Farkers are welcome to introduce this slang term for a cop in a ridiculously eccentric and tiny vehicle into Britain, where some tw@t will assume it to be a glorious unique British invention which us Americaners wouldn't understand.

Half of British language was invented by Americans or other New Worlders (or worse yet, invented by the British and then brought back from the New World as if it were invented by Americans or Australians or what not). It's one of my pet peeves that the British are so insular that they don't even recognize their own language let alone anybody else's language.

WHY CAN'T THE ENGLISH TEACH THEIR DAMNED CHILDREN TO SPEAK ENGLISH?

Even Gordies and Scots can make a decent stab at it.

One of the things on my bucket list is to introduce at least one new coinage into general circulation before I die. Please help.

Every time I say something stupid or vaguely clever, repeat it endlessly as if it I were a climate change denialist from Fox News or the Cato Institute.

It's the only way the language grows.

Maybe I didn't get it either. The only thing I could seem to find was that they misspelled too twice. Otherwise it seemed like either a  harmless add for a gardener or an escort service, possibly both at once.

liam76: #9 was from the "rally to restore sanity" in the US.


I thought so, but wasn't sure.

Still:  it is a very British sign.

#12 did it for me.  I wish we could twitter out the twatters in the legislative branch of the US government.  Give them a bunch of crayons and ship the flids out.

Do you what is the cost of gas (petrol) is in the UK?

http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2013/feb/22/petrol-price-surge-weak- pu nd-wholesale-prices

"Regionally, Yorkshire and Humberside and the north of England are currently cheapest for petrol at 137.6p a litre, while prices in London and Scotland are at an average of 137.8p. Northern Ireland is the most expensive at 138.7p. "

That's in about 1.38 GBP or 2.13 USD a liter (3.79 L to 1 US Gal.) = 8.07 USD/Gal.  How much is your gas?

Lady garden is slang for pussy. Work the rest out.
