Discussion in 'Birthday Wishes' started by Bitis Gabonica, Mar 23, 2005.
LOL! Maybe we all need to get together and come up with an english to english dictionary!
lol don't you mean correct English to American English
Now now don't start that argument again.. Dom will join in and start talking about the monarchy!
Happy Birthday Joe! I hope you have a good one!
Also, we really don't want to start discussing the 2 englishes. After all, last I checked, more countries in the world use the American English as a second language opposed to those that use Englands English. (When adapting a second language, do ANY other countries use your english, or do they too find it confusing? lol)
Happy Birthday Joe...this has become an interesting thread....LOL....cracks me up...but enjoy your day anyways...Lyn
Ah Rich, that's because those countries are just as stupid as you lot when it comes to language! Now, I won't say it again.. we "invented" the language!! Hehe ok that's it, no more or battle of the US vs UK language wars will begin again
You said it in three words Rich....the two englishes, surely by literal definition english has only one correct form, that being the one from England, otherwise it would be referred to as American would it not?
After all it is not my fault that the rest of the world choses the easier, by that I mean the butchered version of our languge to learn as a second language, we can not expect everyone to be as intellectual as us English now can we?? Or could it be due to the fact that like us English during the Victorian era, America under George Bush is stating his own empire and thus the American English is now being taught in countries under American rule...sorry occupancy (see you can use the languge when you try )
(This is a joke and is meant in that way if anyone feels it isn't then feel free to remove it)
LOL Couldn't have said it better
subway/underground walkway or passage
Now what's so confusing about that?!?! (And that's only the smallest fraction of the differences.)
Happy Birthday Joe. After all that the only important thing I got out of it was that a pub is a bar!!! Have a great day.
Aah but Jay my friend a Pub is so much more than a bar.....
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOE! 23...wow, I was 23 once...a very long time ago
Pronunciation: bl&-'mänj, -'mänzh

My friend in Compeigne mentioned this dessert once...
Now THAT I will give you!
Joe anyone that has been around here any length of time should realize that there is a lot of good natured ribbing goes on, from both sides of the ocean!
We are all friends and family here which leaves a bit of leeway for some teasing.
Even if you guys do talk funny!
Pub/bar = mmmm!
There you go Merlin - the definition of blacmange; it's really horrible IMO, kind of like a mix between cold set custard and jelly (our jelly!)
Ah now,. Andrea.. we use purse and wallet - a purse is a female's money keeping accessory, a wallet is the male version,. but the American purse is our handbag! Hahaha confused you all now haven't i!!
I'd give anything to get to go to a real pub! We don't have anything that qualifies around here...*sigh*
I'm just not ready for you guys today! LOL
I've had a migraine for 3 days now....maybe this is why, all your language barriers confuse me!
Have a great Birthday Joe! I hope you get a hunk of coal for a present! lol
WE talk funny!!! I feel you are gravely mistaken my good man...take Iraq for instance....since when is it pronounced Eye-Rack???
The beauty of England...there are about 30, but 1 really good one within 5 minutes walk from where I work
No No No No, this is where you are wrong...it is your language barriers that get in the way
have a wonderful b day!
You know....I had my first child at 23....almost 19 yrs ago....wow....I dont believe in barriers actually....we just use different "terms"...thats all LOL....Lyn
Happy birthday Joe!
