@PatrickT I think you’ll like this.

I know your country lost the Revolution @anon80629714, but you don’t have to live next door to them, lol! I know there are a lot of Americans on this forum, so I apologize ahead of time.

Hey @Mim130 it’s light hearted Jokes and nothing about it should be literal. British love to take the mic out themselves.

But the English eat pies made out of blood, so they are not as superior as they think.

Blood pudding (or black pudding as we call it) is lovely. Think that sounds bad you should try haggis!

I guess I shouldn’t compare. Some of our favorite food, hot dogs and bologna are made out of chicken lips, hog guts, and more horrible stuff that no one even knows.

This is not about superiority , but if you want to start with that … Americans can’t even spell Mum properly.

I already told you ish… Mummy makes me think of Egyptian mummies.
Take a moment to ponder…
I am not biased cause I am neither American nor English.
But Mom looks better.

Right , they are not even called Egyptian mummy’s in Egypt. Lol.

Mom looks better? Aha well jokes aside it doesn’t matter whether you say mom or Mum , whether you say ma , baa , or whatever it’s just another way of calling the woman who gave birth to us. I want to be a mother now :cry:

Actually @exhile, because we’re a bilingual country, in Canada we do it too in the English language!

The guy at work told me, “Word to your mother”. I didn’t know if that was an insult or not so I turned around and asked my other co-worker but he didn’t know either.

People of African decent that are in the entertainment industry really adjust the words and letters of the English language. I heard “Word to your mother” by Vanilla Ice and the end of his song, “ice ice baby”.
