God's (of any religion) chosen people, live in a Green and Pleasant land known as England. Comes from the fact that the Royal Navy was clever enough to give its Sailors a good source of Vitamin C to stop them dropping down dead with scurvy. And as at that time we had the World's largest Navy we needed Sailors to man, see unlike you Americans we don't man equipment, we equip MEN (real men not pansies who hide behind a gun!). A good example of this is the fact that Basra seemed not to hate us, and we could walk around our part of Iraq with berets, whilst the Americans needed 5 metres (Metric term, slightly longer than a Yard) worth of Armour.
Red Neck: Ahh sucks being at sea so long, missin' ma cousin, I got this scurvy too.
Limey: Hmm try this Lime, although we don't molest our cousins where I'm from old chap, can't help on that one! Hmm nice tea, so much better than that bloody awful coffee you chaps drink!
