I defy anybody to post anything more English than this picture.
In England, fizzy caffeine-delivery systems now come in pints.
I am totally going here tomorrow … to get Branston Pickle!
A bit late to the party, but what a lovely story.
As it turns out, “Keep Calm and Carry On” was originally a British propaganda poster printed during World War II that was never released to the general public for whatever reason. But then, in 2000, a bookstore owner in the U.K. discovered one stuffed away in an old box — it was then framed and hung in the store. People liked it, so the store started printing replicas. A genuine phenomenon was born — and a poster printed over 70 years ago is now an iconic image in the 21st century. Imagine that! The delightful video below explains it all. Enjoy…

There are certain recipes in any culture’s diet which cause consternation and disgust if you haven’t grown up eating them. I, for example, am not mad about the idea of okra, or sheep’s eyes, or that sandwich Elvis liked with all the bacon and jelly and peanut butter. However, I AM prepared to give each of these things a try, in the name of gastronomic research.
With that in mind, here’s an impassioned plea on behalf of some unfairly maligned British delicacies. I’ve personally tried them all, with one exception, and I am here to tell you that a) they are not gross and b) I did not die.
C’mon, tuck in!
What a scotch egg might look like.
The Who: Keith now resides in Golders Green crematorium, having lived up to the Who’s anthemic line “I hope I die before I get old”
Such a pretty plane. Thanks Burma!
There will be a test later.
Great split-screen video from Deadspin showing blow-by-blow the events of the most exciting conclusion to the English Premier League evaaaah!
I would probably watch basketball if the commentary was always like this. English people make everything better.
