I was going through the member updates. In the updates it asks "What Languge do you want the text in"? the only choice states British-English. I took offense to assuming I want British English. I want my text in American English , Hebrew, French ,Spanish .I didnt want British Mate. Ehhh. You bloody blokes.

Can't trust the Brits, they sell dog fish as rock salmon! LOL
From wikipedia: "In England this and other dogfish are sold in fish and chip shops as "rock salmon"
"Fish Hard and Fish Often!"

Cor Blimey well Rac lets not have a barney on that but i will say i get really pissed off when i have to spell stuff like labour labor, colour color and tyre tire i even had to explain to my kids what a fortnight was?! Ive never come across the feature your talking about but here is some useful British slang...Since I know you really love us!
Arse - your bum
Bell-end- good way to insult some bloke
berk- another insulting way to address a cockney who is a (guy from London)( Scouse would be from Liverpool, Scallie would be from Manchester, and A Taff would be Welsh) there is so many more....
Bollocks- best way to say oops
The Dogs Bollocks- this is the ultimate compliment
The gooiles- somewhere where you DO NOT want to be kicked
Brass monkeys- So cold its cold enough to freeze the balls of a brass monkey
Bugger - another word for oops
bugger off- piss off
Pissed- intoxicated
Gaffer- Mike Carey

LOL i could go on and on,.... Anyways Wonder if there is any other folks on this site who are from UK or even Europe?

Gaffer - thank goodness you're using the British definition - you are, right? I'm not ready to be considered an old man (not that there's anything wrong with that).
