Yes, yes that is exactly what we look like !!

Wonderful !


I'm a little teapot
Short and stout
Here is my handle
Here is my spout

When I get all steamed up
Hear me shout
"Tip me over
and pour me out!"

Men are the same as women, just inside out !

I wish we did but sadly we don't any more.
Give a man a fire and he is warm for a day, set a man on fire and he is warm for the rest of his life.

It's obvious that the first pic is an American fake. In the UK we know that Ceylon is called Sri Lanka now.

True, but the tea is still called Ceylon.
Incidentally, not all of us are in black and white these days.

The man is obviously not British. No British male would just drop his hat on the floor. It would be hung on the hallstand.

To be the archetypal Brit, the hat should be a Bowler and there should be a brolly. He is wearing brown shoes with a black suit...
Also, the pot on the table is a coffee pot, it should be a tea pot.

Sorry Karen!!! Otherwise, it's a nice clean plate.

What is wrong with that?
It was certainly acceptable, considered smart even, when I was at school in the late '50s - my headmaster did that and senior prefects were allowed to as well.

This is another Peter Howsen painting of British people "out on the town": for a less cynical version see Beryl Cook
