The only race in the world who make a sport out of making fun of ourselves and each other. Heres its called slagging and it means you dont get beat up for making a joke about someone. we also complain about everything :weather, schools, food, work, tescos etc. not alot of people like us but hey if we didnt exist neither would a lot of other nations e.g united states. Also not everyones accent is posh. in fact only a handful of people do. But every accent here is unique and unless you're from that place you probably wont understand a word that person is saying! Urban Dictionary

Good people that have my respect any day. Any of my fellow Americans who trash talk the UK can go to hell. Likewise for any brit who trash talks Americans. Only uneducated and uninformed people(s) trash other nations people. It's okay to speak out against the government, but the government and people are too separate things. Usually these people who trash talk have never visited the other country, thus they judge their whole opinion on skewed media and television. Urban Dictionary

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. Urban Dictionary

Awesome people, and most of the time the best friend of America. But I'm starting to lose faith on my fellow Yanks if we bash the British like that. They never did anything to us since Napoleon...but they did become one of our greatest allies. Urban Dictionary

The people who, with the help of our american cousins, keep the world as normal as we possibly can, we try to keep a ceiling to the fanatical ruthlesness that has been bestowed upon us through our own kindness. it is my opinion that by trying to help weaker countries to defend themselves we have made ourselves targets. I am aware that even between the US and UK we have idiots who, for one uneducated reason or another happily slates the other. I have no desire to even read any of these pathetic wasters comments. I am a proud brit, I am a serving british soldier and have worked closely with the US on operations, i have not yet to date met a yank that i dont like. i spent six very long months in IRAQ and they were the longest months of my life. the poor yanks had to stay for almost a year, away from there wives, husbands etc. the way the US dealt with 9/11 for example how can you not respect the americans if nothing else. I am a brit, I am a proud blood-relation to every man and woman in the united states forget the criticism we may have for our governments, they make the decisions not the people. no other countries care so passionatly about the world, most of our "allies" adopt the "passer by" syndrome wich makes this world so very very weak, eg;A person being beaten in the street, the passer by walks on, after all, he's OK, all this attitude does is tell the terrorist that while so many decent people in the world do care, there are billions more who are happy to just walk on by because they themselves are OK. cousin america, we all make mistakes, but dont you ever change! Urban Dictionary

Okay one British is the name of the person from Britian... two iwas reading these definitions and there is so much bashing going on between the british and the americans, it's rediculess. I was born in Britian that makes me British, but i live in both America and Germany(damn parents divorced)... Niethor country is better than the other, both have their problems...but America does seem to have more at the moment... Anyways with that being said...get over these damn sterio-types of us Brits having bad teeth, and thining we are all snoody, and look down our noses on everybody else. Just because Austin Powers was "british" and he had bad teeth doesnt mean eveyone does...Again Hollywood screws with your head. Same with Americans. Not Everyone is lazy and thinks that they are hard and gangser, and eats at bloody Mc Donalds everyday!!... There are Ugly people all over the world, trust me I have seen most of it...and if you have bad teeth, well thats why they made braces, now isn't it? Urban Dictionary

A union of four nations, England, Scotland, wales and Northern Ireland. Former world super power. But thanks to largely friendly links with it's former colonies still can hold a lot of clout over international opinion. With in these nations there is a very rich cultural, historical and enthic diversity that attracts over 35 million visitors a year. Sadly it's population are now mainly disillusioned with its internal political system and as a result we have a very pro Bush government ruling a very anti bush population. However the British people have their own way of dealing with their rogue leaders. Urban Dictionary

I'm proud of being british, i'm sure your proud of being patriotic too of your country. I also thought the americans were our friends...obviously not, they seem to hate us for some reason judging by the amount of crap isults posted in this dictionary... Urban Dictionary

Whats it like to be British? An understanding of subtle irony in comedy is very important as is a self depreciating sense of humour. Hating the French and most other Europeans would be an advantage but viewing the former colonys as "naughty children" when they start wars or international feuds etc. Manners and a sense of fair play are also very important. I personally do have bad teeth and see no real malice in americans making jokes about the british teeth (its just a joke!!) Oh and on a final note we gave the French mad cow disease LOL!!!

i instantly baulked at this story - personally, its a waste of breath talking about it (thank god i am typing) because the stength in british comedy (at least one vital key element) is the 30-minute format. take it outside that and it falls apart - yes, even 'shaun of the dead' feels like two or three 30-minute episodes strung together and even then a comparatively successful film is pretty duff ... ❋ Unknown (2006)

personally, I was interested into the amount of directed hate towards us by our american friends and thought why? apart from our recent international relations with you with invasions against terror and other types, I thought, as a british citizen, that things were normal but instead a find abuse flying between minority groups of the urban [dic-tionary] from both our nations. minority groups on your side seem to think that "we go around thinking we own the place", what [bollucks], our empire days are over and only hope that it caused as much good as it did bad. also, you seem to think we live in a mary [poppins] world with [plummy] accents; yeah, our accents are weird but we're proud of that :) saying all this to a british guy and the remarks about bad teeth would just piss him off, becuase it stereotyping at it's worst. I have a lot of american friends who arn't like certain groups in this dictionary, which is simpy, displaying the bad minorities of both our nations [peace people] :) ❋ Susan (2004)

"Yes you did bail us out in [1945] but we gave you our splendid language" "[British people] best in the world, [old chap]" ❋ Pikey Mullet (2005)
