Ye Englyshe Custommes
Surreyman on 01/31/2007
|We English are rather psycho about our revered and ancient customs.|
We attempt to shed our 'fish & chips' and bowler hat image - yet still stick 'em right up front on our tourist posters!
We claim our modern techno society - and debate at length whether a woman should have been appointed as a Beefeater!
We sturdily insult the Scots, Welsh and Irish at every opportunity - then recoil in horror if there's any talk of disbanding the United(?) Kingdom!
We stress our leadership in the arts, opera, cuisine, civility, diplomacy ... then go down to the pub to play conkers or tiddleywinks!
No wonder we're a bit difficult to understand.
But at base level, all those strange customs are indeed still here. We love 'em and would defend 'em to the death - well, for another pint anyway. The tourists can easily find 'em if they're genuinely interested - or even know of 'em in the first place!
This quiz is about English customs that are still very much alive and kicking (the kicking only happens if Morris Dancers try to intrude ...).
So "Top hole, old beans ... chin chin, jolly up and have a stab ... "
