I realise that British English isn't everyone's favourite, but I think we can all appreciate it.

My sister and I play a game where we guess the British slang for various objects. The trick is to act like you're cooing at a newborn.

British English's continued insistence that the plurality of a word comes from its originator language is one of the dumbest things to come out of any language.

It’s disconcerting at first but you can get along pretty well if you just remember a few simple rules. Fries are chips and chips are crisps. The crisps are cooked properly but the chips are underdone by law.

Most british english doesn't actually exist, it's just for daytime TV ads to pretend to be down to earth working class.

I’m honestly surprised that they didn’t name a grocery chain Piggly-Wiggy before US southerners did. They probably would have spelled it Piggily-Wiggily though.

British English is objectively worse than American English in every way, but it's mostly fine. Except dumb cutesy rhyming expressions that only old ladies use, something about "cream-crackered" just makes me want to throw a punch.
Actually the worst thing about British English might be the general lack of Oxford commas. Apparently they never really caught on in the rest of the country, who knew?

I like the way British people refuse to sound too French while saying French words like garage, making it rhyme with marriage.
