Ew ew ew ew ewwwww! Does that stuff even sell?

Hey does anyone like Marmite?

I bet it's a huge hit over on this side. Why do you think over 50% of our population is overweight? Americans eat like garbage disposals :P

I thought marmite was a cooking pot or something =:P

We eat everything here, but I'm gonna venture and say that wouldn't sell well here unless it's so radioactively fattening that you'd blow an artery if you ate two or so spicy it'll burn a hole in your mouth :thumbsup:

This is a regular entree:

Marmite is the kind of thing our governor would say "girly men" eat :jester:

LOL! Yeah America does'nt understand the sentence "Can I have a small coke" they go "ok" and come back with a coke like extra extra large, and everything you get to eat is like HUGE portions, they even wrap it up for you to take home! :)

Its really weird and when you ask for chips they are like "Oh you mean fries"??? ::

Small is like a 42oz. drink that can last you a day :: Oh, that's riiiight! You guys are metric o'er there! If you ever come to this side, you're gonna have to re-adjust to our retarded way of measuring stuff - the English way with inches, miles, ounces, pounds, etc.! Hell! I've been taking science classes for years now and I STILL don't know wtf something weighs when it is in kg =:P If you want "chips", they'll point to the vending machine and you can buy Lays, Ruffles, and Fritos, but fries are fries (French fries, "freedom" fries, curly fries, etc.). We do have a couple of places that sell stuff like "fish 'n chips", which we know is meant to be British, but that is the exception to the rule :beatnik: Also, get used to the Mexican food. Chips (tortilla chips!) and salsa are the numero uno snack food in the US :bow:

That's weird, come over here and ask for a large portion and you will get a small portion...to you's..

But yeah I'm moving to Colarado..but I so won't get used to the whole 'American slang thing' and on american t.v you have like 10 mins of tv and then 10 mins of ads...that sucks,

and I will feel like such an outsider, cause the americans have a real strong accent, and there will be me...with my ole 'Irish mouth' :puppyeyes:

Let me explain,

Okay Ireland is in Europe and neighbours Britan, Britan makes up England, Wales, Scotland, and sadly Nothern Ireland, cause you know with the whole Easter Rising thing, Northern Ireland is really in Ireland, but the British had to go and take over it, so its considered 'Britan'

Thats why their is chaos over here with the whole Prodestants -V- Catholics thing, ya see

most catholics living in Nothern Ireland consider themselves Irish

wheras most prodestants (not all) living in Nothern Ireland consider themselves British

Now the I.R.A (Irish republican army) are trying to get our 6 nothern counties back to being Ireland

and use terrorist means to do this

No offence to the British, it happened a long time ago, and your nice people, but I don't like to be called British when Im actually from the Republic of Ireland :)

Bleh! I got the geography wrong? I shouldn't believe everything I read then. I thought that when people spoke of the "British Isles" it included the Republic of Ireland... it's actually still mentioned in some geography books and sites as being the second largest of the British Isles (???).

oh, thats still, really, really weird, ick ::

well, we take making a PBNJ seriously around my house.

Heres the recipe:

One saucer,

one large scoop Peanut butter

One large scoop grape jelly

Mix vigorously.

apply to both pieces of bread,

smash together,

then cut off all the crust,

then cut diagonally , both ways,

so you have 4 pbnj triangles!

wonderful.

Ever had peanut butter, and banana?

Well were considered in the British Isles ::

But no, Im not English, Scottish, Welsh, or British

And the English, Scottish and Welsh accent is completly different from the Irish accent :)

So I don't speak like Mike Myers or Rod Stuart...now their British..lol :D

Waaah =:P I seldom get to hear Irish and Scottish accents and manage to fumble everything when I hear people refer to them as Scottish Gaelic and Irish Gaelic - sometimes they sound similar to my untrained ear :help: (haha! At least you won't have to be subtitled like the fellows from Oasis :P ). Anyway, before I sink myself further in my own ignorance, lemme recommend a healthy snack:

Apple slices with peanut butter.

This is actually pretty good and the only way I can eat peanut butter ::
