Yep.

A friend of mine who frequently travels to Europe told me that "drunk Brits" are worse than "ugly Americans" now.

More people in Berlin, Prague, and Amsterdam hate and scorn the Brits than they do Americans.

No, drunk brits have always been worse than "ugly Americans".

"Ugly Americans", for all their faults, are harmless.

And the proportion of "ugly American" to "nice American" is far lower than "drunk Brits" to "cool Brits".

Nice Americans are some of the more discreet people there is, and when you manage to meet them, can be some of the more charming people in the world.

Yay!

Someone is finally more hated than us Americans!
 
2013-07-22 03:53:40 AM  
Come on mexico and the UK!

//for making the US look just a little less bad on the geopolitical stage. And slightly less fat apparently.

Jealousy because British kids make all other kids look like wimps.

Or as we like to call it..........Mexico

Yeah, but that Iraq War didn't do us Americans any favors.

Jeebus, it's not so hard to learn a few phrases of the language spoken in the place your traveling to, and not to act like an asshole. Just blend in and you're fine. Don't know how many times in Paris I'd walk into a place, say Bonjour to the sales clerk, and they'd start speaking French to me before they realized I knew little French and switched to English if they knew it. And the other time I rode a scooter around Paris and tourist would stop me for directions, and start speaking broken French to me. I'd bust out saying "Sorry, only know English" and they would be like "Thank heaven!"

So according to the pictures and article the Brits are basically the Jersey of Europe. It makes so much sense now....

Can anyone else confirm this?


/it's a British thing?

We've got to regain the Empire somehow.

I love conservative journalism. The fake quiet outrage and condemnation of terrible youths and their debauchery poorly concealing the real jealousy and the lascivious joy of yet another excuse to post a dozen pics of minimally dressed, drunk, horny girls and describe their excesses in detail is so charming.
You just know the author was nursing a chubby while he wrote this.

To be fair, I was doing best in Geneva this weekend to represent the UK. Paris last week, it's not easy keeping the image up!
 
2013-07-22 05:49:20 AM  
Ah, Bulgaria.
The country where the tourist pamphlet explicitly tells you that if you see big men with young girls they are probably mafia... but don't worry, they won't bother you as long as you don't bother them!

What are you talking about? That guy just got paid to get hammered and nail 20-somethings for a weekend. He's already nursed, raised and harvested his Hard on.

Good point. But I bet his editor had a quick wank.

Also, in spite of The Sun's attempt to present this as news, Danish tv station TV3 is on the third season of their reality show Sommer I Sunny Beach, which is basically this article but with Danish teens and stretched out to 13 episodes a year.

"I've thrown up every other night - this is the place to be"

Bulgaria Tourism needs to feature this quote on their website

Given that one evening spent getting drunk in Geneva costs roughly the GDP of Norway it's not that hard to maintain decorum.

As a Turk I can say that most fellow Turks avoid areas that cater to British tourists because they tend to attract a crowd that is rowdy and only interested in having a slice of Little Britain in a Mediterranean setting- with their own food, their own pubs, their own football games to watch. Also, they come on very cheap packages. I actually had to threaten to call the tourism ministry on one hotelier because he was trying to charge me more because I was Turkish!! It's madness.

Been going on for ages...

Limeys on holiday can be some of the most obnoxious, annoying assholes you'll ever meet. Not all of them, of course.

They basically want to go to England with a warmer climate, and anything/anyone non-English they run across is shiat in their eyes... and they're more than happy to loudly and drunkenly tell you why.

One need only spend a short time on the Mediterranean coast of Spain or the southern coast of Portugal to see prime examples of this behavior.

Don't worry guys, just got back from Thailand and the Chinese are soon to be outpacing us all for the "ugly" and "rude" tourist spot.

I thought the chocolate sauce on the titties was a nice touch.
 
2013-07-22 08:08:20 AM  
This is clearly wrong, because my liberal friends and the UK Farkers never get tired of telling us how the Brits are superior to Americans in every way.  Smarter, more well-read, better health care, less violent -- it's an island paradise!  These rude drunken people must actually be Americans with weird accents, like Philadelphians.
 
2013-07-22 08:26:14 AM  
Maybe they should charge a little more and try to get a better class of tourist?
 
2013-07-22 08:31:57 AM  
Now we just need those people that normally visit the Jersey Shore to go to Bulgaria and then nuke it from orbit.  I think the Brits will join us with doing that.

AND they really appreciate your attempt to meet them halfway!

Are you sure you want to drink a shot of tequila that cost only 45c?

We had a week booked in the Algarve and stayed for two chav-tastic nights. Got the hell out and headed north to Sintra as soon as we could.

As a guy that stayed in many a hostel throughout Europe, I can confirm the drunken Brits were consistently obnoxious absolutely everywhere I went.
 
2013-07-22 03:44:31 PM  
If it's Tuesday, the British must be spoiling Belgium over-night.

Oh, wait. There's no way to spoil Belgium. Like yoghurt it can spoil overnight because it is already spoiled. Sweet, creamy, tart, spoiled.

Funny thing: I just got a "malware warning" bout this thread. Not about The Sun, which would not be surprising, or Fark.com, which would be surprising and alarming, but about this thread.

It said something about carrying malware-infected material from a site named thedalcrons or something like that. Never heard of them. Maybe there was an ad from the site or something, or perhaps it was a weird glitch.

Anybody else see anything? Besides a bunch of semi-naked Brits, I mean?

Back in my younger, traveling days, I found myself stranded in Alicante with very little money... Ended up spending the better part of a month there staying in a pension owned by this amazingly generous family. I stayed for free, but I had to clean the common areas once a day and help the eldest son bring food to the cloistered nuns a few blocks away from the pension. The Spaniards were amazing... Super friendly, welcoming, great fun to drink with. The only problem was all the damned English assholes screaming at people in English (who obviously didn't speak English), mocking and ridiculing everything that wasn't English. So farking obnoxious.

I saw a lot of the same when I was living in Dublin, especially from the wealthy 20/30 somethings who came over to Ireland for Stag and Hen parties. 'Course, the Irish gave it right back to them and quite a few of them found themselves on the wrong end of an angry Irishman. Nothing funnier than watching a bunch of knackers from north Dublin knocking the shiat out out of some mouthy Brit... Almost poetic.


Now, I've met many of cool and decent Brits in my travels, but damn they were hard to find amongst all the assholes.

*sadface*

Stupid Brits ruining everything.  Went to Bulgaria 6 years ago, loved it.  Stayed about 25 minutes from Sunny Beach, St Constantine and Hele, great little resort area, enough to cater to tourists without being tacky.

Visited Sunny Beach one day, found it to be supper tacky, like a mini Vegas next to the beach.

British tourists WERE the worst thing about the trip.  I mean loud and braying ... and do you really have to bring your child (in a stroller) into a nightclub at 11:30 at night?  I mean what a twunt!

I think that for my next far off vacation I'd like to hit Bosnia Herzegovenia or Croaia.

/beautiful women there too
