Girl 1: "This country is so tasteless. I can't wait to go to Britain, where there's class."
Girl 2: "God, I hate Britain. It's just like America only with unintelligible accents."

Americans could only "well improve" this place . . .

And it's only unintelligible here because of the alcohol.

makes me wonder why then on every television show in the US, they have a British person as an host? Who doesn't love unintelligible accents...

Because people think that anything different is quite posh. (When I moved here, from the US, everyone in the UK said, "Why on Earth would you move here? It's rubbish. American is so cool!")

Other man's grass is always greener . . . so they say.

'Can't stop, need to get darn the frog and toad to the battle cruiser and get a britney darn me gregory.

'Cheers.'

Yay! Great to hear from you. I think. I suppose it's just as likely that was an insult.
