What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

I’m not sure about this one…I had to leave some of the answers blank, and force a couple of the others to fit. I suppose it’s because I don’t speak any kind of American English, so it wasn’t really designed for me.

Last year the Americans came under a fair amount of criticism from the rest of the world for re-electing the war criminal Boosh as their president: it seems we in the UK will soon have to launch our own “We’re sorry, World” website as according to a news story this morning (which I now can’t find to reference), the Patronising Prat is drawing ahead in the polls and looks like winning an “historic” third term. How the hell can the British people be so stupid? A third term under Blair means –

  • Reduced hospital waiting lists – as hospital managers get even better at massaging figures, rather than letting doctors treat according to clinical need
  • A reduction in crime rate – as the closure or part-closure of police stations makes reporting crime harder
  • The cancellation of the promised referendum on the European Constitution, according to this story

I think I’m going to invest some money in a factory making “Don’t blame me, I didn’t vote Labour” badges.
