Most certainly sir! But...in the spirit of our President wanting to tax large wealthy organizations to pay down our national debt, including corporate jet owners, we will require you to pay a tax for each teabag that you receive from us. Hence forth, we shall call this tax the Teabag Act of 2011.


P.S. Also...we would like that in valid American currency and not British currency, thank you.


Happy fourth of July America!

@ Taak Farst: Orly? Yeah, I'm British, and a variety of other things too.

I'm feeling great. I might go cannibalize some dead electronics, go break something, and make a nuisance of myself. Then I'm going to blair Dennis Leary's "I'm an @$$ hole" song.

Then I'll go to a backyard grill and then after that I'll go watch fireworks to celebrate. Something like that.

I hope wherever I go, I find some drunk people being stupid and embarrassing themselves. Really need some YT content.

Probably because most North Americans don't understand the difference between being English, Scottish, Irish, or just generally British; so when they fill out a census, which I assume the above data is from, the numbers come up all cluster****ed. Since the English, Scottish, Irish, and Welsh are all British, then those who identify themselves as some kind of British do indeed outnumber any single ethnicity.

All that stuff aside, though, happy Fourth to all the Americans of LF. Even the non-British ones.

Hope all of my American friends are having a good day! Same to those who are not my American friends, but still Americans. Just slightly less so. I suppose.

Ireland is one of the British Isles. They are therefore, strictly speaking, British.

No they aren't! All the British loyalists moved north to later-to-be-Canada, where we still hold the Queen dear.

Probably because they are different groups , I'm English, I'm in no way Scottish Irish or welsh, and I'm only British when the Olympics are on

The days of the Irish being known as hardy hard working Drinkers, Boxers and Gangsters are long over, Ireland is known for Boybands, Gay Students in Soap Operas, the Irish debt crisis, and Jedward... I Doesnt even scared

Well, that's fair, but as your pic groups Americans and Germans as two giant blocs, it seems biased. I'm sure an Austrian would say he's not German and an Iroquois would say she isn't a Cherokee.

Besides, if Scottish, Welsh, Irish, and English are all grouped separately, who the **** is in the 0.4% British group?

Possibly the Cornish. They can be a little nutty.

Or they could be from somewhere like the Isle of Man.

I'd say it'd be extremely likely that many, at least, would be from eastern Northern Ireland. Not many will pick Irish, Scotch-Irish means...little...and there is not a Northern Irish option.
