Other Things That Should Be Banned From Flights Between the UK and the US

Of all the things to ban UKer’s from having on their person at all times: toothpaste, hair gel and sun screen, ha!
I think we all see the humo(u)r in tooth paste and sun screen. The British are notoriously well groomed in the mouth and possessing of deep tans befitting their island nation.

But the hair gel? That’s simply cruel, do you have any idea how long the perfectly messy/feigned disinterest hair style has been a part of British culture? Like twenty thousand years. Don’t believe me? Watch Vanity Fair, that Reese’s Meyer kid has what looks like a parrots ass sticking out of his head the entire movie.

Instead the following items should be instantly forbidden to travel from the UK to the US:

  1. Victoria and David Beckham
  2. Cultural references to cricket
  3. The Madonna/Gwynneth Paltrow Megabritwifezord
  4. Royalty
  5. Crumpets
  6. History
  7. Actual Irish People
  8. British humor and the unfounded national pride assocciated thereof


  1. Hey!! What’s up with #7?!

  2. I’ve found you, my New York counterpart! I write about twats in Tropical New York and you write about the ones in actual New York. As many of my jackasses live part time up there, I guarantee you we have some overlap. A friend sent me your blog, and I love it. Let me add a #9 to the list. Chavs. I want no more British Chavs in America. No more fake Burberry track suits and people who say “Fing” instead of “thing.” I really dont like that.

  3. Thank you for reading my blog and leaving a comment. As I read more into your posts, I saw the one referring to toilet etiquette and laughed so hard that I almost spit roasted garlic chunks onto the flat screen. I’ll come back to continue to read your more than intersting blog. In fact, and with your permission, I’d like to add a link to your site to my blog list.

  4. Blu!

    Awesome! I’d love that.

    I just set this thing up (the archives are from Rhythmism.com where I’ve been putting them up) and I’m super-happy-fantastic-time excited that people like them.
