Whats it like to be British? An understanding of subtle irony in comedy is very important as is a self depreciating sense of humour. Hating the French and most other Europeans would be an advantage but viewing the former colonys as "naughty children" when they start wars or international feuds etc. Manners and a sense of fair play are also very important. I personally do have bad teeth and see no real malice in americans making jokes about the british teeth (its just a joke!!)
Oh and on a final note we gave the French mad cow disease LOL!!!

Breeding ground for Chavs
Invaded many countries
Reason why the Irish speak English
Known for starting fights over soccer
Depending on which part of Britain they were born they can sound like they have a permanent cold and the letter R is never pronounced
Usually out wandering the streets on a Friday/Saturday night drunk and/or possibly starting a fight
Love to talk about financial matters
Prefer to say 'Mate' in a lot of spoken sentences to friends

A slightly tilted country, in ways of being good or bad. In a way, they're good, because they've got Manchester. In other ways, they're bad, because they've got London. I hate London, but Manchester and Liverpool are my favorite travel destinations. Well, other than Barbados.
The British aren't that bad.

(adj) when a person is like or similar to a britt/lesbien.

to be raunchy, ugly, shady, whore.

unable to make facial expressions (smiling, puckering etc)

although britts are technically female, they might as well be men, because the only boys that go for them only lower their standards enough for a britt so they can get "laid"
that guys girlfriend is so british , she is such a man.

People that have no friends, assume all Americans are fat and stupid, and speak with an annoying accent that makes me want to shoot myself in the head.
They are not cool, and they think they're better than everyone.
Those god damn British people need to get off urban dictionary, they aren't cool at all.

British Guy:Shut up you bloody wanker
Me:Shut up your a douchebag

A person who comes from a strange rain swept island called Britain. It used to be called "The British Isles", and "Great" Britain, but that was before it became a third world country. The British fall into two categories: The Dandy and the Chav. The Dandy is the stereotypical version of a Brit; a haughty and sniffy metrosexualized fop who nibbles on cucumber sammiches with pinky extended while spouting off poetry. Then there is the modern stereotype; the fat, drunk, smelly, toothless, uncircumcised, foul mouthed, shaven headed Chav lout in a dirty soccer shirt ("football" they call it, *snort*). It is mostly the English who are associated with this embarrassing and disgraceful image of the British, and not the Scots (who are usually sleeping off their heroin fix), and the Welsh (who are busy sodomizing farm animals). The Northern Irish don't really know what they are, they just want to drink it or bomb it.
"Wow, did you see that group of fat, drunk, and smelly British tourists get beaten to a pulp by that proud, patriotic, and hygienic American citizen defending his land and his honor from those dirty foreign interlopers?"

A person from England. Nice enough people, very good beer, similar culture and sense of humor to that of the US. Except for the ones who need to constantly slag off/rag on the US, refering to it as "a colony" and insisting that Americans pronounce and spell words incorrectly because Americans have different customs etc...Basically Americans wish that the ex-pat Brits who act as if as if they ran the world would kindly leave. Not all brits are whinging poms, both Eric Idle and John Cleese have settled in the US and they seem to get along just fine. It's the British that seem to despise anything slightly different from home that we are sick of. The rest of you are welcome to come on over!

Just as there is the "ugly American" tourist stereotype, there are "Awful Brits" that travel around and give the English people in general a bad name. The British often "win" world's worst tourist titles because of this.

The british lout became upset that the word "color" was spelt without a "u" in the US and decided to pontificate about the superiority of the English. The nerve of another country - having different ways of doing things!

When the waiter mistakenly asked if he was Australian due to his accent, the British tourist loudly berated the man for being a "typically stupid American", not realising that the waiter was actually Canadian.
