The United Kingdom Explained

[via]

Every once in a while, we here at Infomaniac like to try to make sense of The United Kingdom, Great Britain, Ireland …. and what have you… by opening up the topic to you or simply by posting a Venn Diagram…

[via]

Today we have added teaching material in the form of an instructional, yet amusing, video clip.

If you have five minutes to spare, watch and learn OR simply postulate your OWN theories in the comments box.

  1. What about the Isle of Man?
    Can you fit it in there somehow?
    I know I can.

  2. Isn't Isle of Man a Kristen Bjorn porn? Bjorn and Borat? Now my head hurts worse than it did before that guy started talking so fast.

  4. Well, Mr Peenee I always thought Kristin Bjorn were the natives on Isle of Man

    A little extra nugget of info. In Denmark we have an island called Man Island.

  7. Trust you lot to turn this discussion into a gay porn plot!

    Oh my, we have a visitor...

    ELSIE VALENTINE: Welcome to Infomaniac!

    I've never been to Anglesey but I'm sure it's every bit as attractive as East Angular.

  8. Dear Mistress as a fellow member of the Commonwealth Realm I have found this information to be most facinating...
    If only the original cunts hadn't forced CRICKET upon the colonies...

    Although I believe Canada rejected it as a sport very early in the piece in preference to curling.
    Who would have guessed?

  9. I think there's a few tiny islands in the atlantic that're still British. And there's the Falklands too - just under Argentina. Hell, there's probably a perfectly square section of Africa that never offically declared independance from the empire.

    Personally I'm always European when in England, English on American websites, and British in Europe.

  10. Is this not the subsidiary of Info-World Travel, situated on Penge High Street above Mr Tipples Cafe and juice bar?
    Are you not the very nice young lady, with the pink lipstick [Yardly] and the Yorkshire Terrier, who gave me a stack of brochures on Welsh travel? Melanie Jones?

  12. I've certainly heard of England... and I know some people still live there, right? Austin Powers, he's from there, I think.

    What I know for sure is that they talk with accents, and they have cute cars, but they catch on fore all the time because they have bad electrical systems.

    OK, that's all I know about it.

  13. The cars, they catch on FIRE, I mean... I occasionally type with an accent all my own.

  18. Toodle pip! Nobody says that anymore. MJ I think you've been watching too many world war II dramas.

  19. @MITZI: I've made a decision to bring back archaic sayings AND long forgotten things in general from days of yore.

    Let's start with the codpiece and take it from there.
