British does not mean English. Britain consists of four nations: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. NEVER call an Irishman "british" because he (or she) will hurt you.
We LOVE laughing at ourselves and everyone else.(We call this "taking the piss".) We have a pretty evil sense of humour, but that's the best kind! We excel at black comedy, sarcasm, satire, understatement, and comedy in geneal. Alot of people don't 'get' our humour, but i suppose that's down to cultural differences. We're proud of our sense of humour.
We don't all speak posh, like the queen. There are SO many accents in the UK. I've lived in Britain all my life, and I've only met a handful of posh people. I hate that people think we're all upperclass and aristocratic,. Not true ATALL!
We don't sit around having tea parties, with china tea cups, and frilly tablecloths. We don't use words like "cheerio", we DO NOT love the queen.
You wish you were British

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.

People from the England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Although the tag is not appreciated by many in Scotland and Northern Ireland. The stereotype British is either very lower class has a sunburned bald head, wears an England jersey, could get in a fist fight with his mother and spouts endless tuneless dirges about 'Engerland'. The alternative is being so posh they can't close their mouths. In reality not near as bad as the stereotypes in general but much of their football supporters should be put down like dogs. A great many of the worlds best inventions came from here and grudgingly I admit it would be markedly different without them. Now much less important in the grand scheme of things than a few hundred years ago and having trouble dealing with it. Can have an annoying type of arrogance that seems to stem from not realising many people of different races are still a bit angry about having their culture stripped of them in a barbaric and cruel fashion. This kind of stuff is not really taught in the school system as many are ashamed of it now. Their main critics are the Irish who were relatively happy left to their own devices before the 700 hundred years of oppression, the Scottish who think they're wankers, the Aussies who think they're pussies and the French who dont like anyone.
The British are alright I suppose but they knock more than their fair share of wankers for the size of the country. Still they churn out some damn fine comedy both on TV and stand up
