Even with understanding, it seems the English just can't create something interesting.

You may find it was an Englishman who created this forum. If you don't find it interesting then bog off back to your greasy holes in the ground, you gneiss-gnlover!

Creation with reference to "sports," sport. So pull in the claws and drag that fat, flat tail back to the pond, dirt dauber.

Good point really- the English invented Baseball.
It seems the French claim to have invented cricket.

Yeah, they would. Have the French ever invented anything?

I think quite a lot of interesting cuisine was invented by the French. Everyone has to be good at something, but sadly the Americans seem to be an exception to the rule. Oh no, I forget, the Americans are good at trying to be good at things. You have to give them credit for trying hard.

In mediaeval times there were two games that anyone could join in with - 'knocking the hat off' and the 'arse-kicking contest'.
I know this is true because I saw it a re-enactment day last summer at a local Norman castle.
The hat knocking is simple - you try no knock someone's hat off but the arse-kicking is more complicated in that you have to hold your belt with both hands and try to kick someones arse - it actually looked quite difficult.
Those were the days, when people knew how enjoy themselves. ;D

In France, French kissing is called English kissing. French letters were invented by the Romans.

We could be looking at a case for the RSPCA here, it seems there is some animosity as to the condition of the afore mentioned doormice, at the time of their stuffing !
In law, if the doormice were stuffed whilst still alive, even sedated, there is a cruelty case, as well as a criminal one, if they were deceased however, they cant spill the beans,can they ?  ::)
