Join the guys as they answer a few questions aimed at Brits! (Shamelssly pinched from Reddit. Link in “more”)

In this episode Fox and Cohan answer questions from AskReddit (! Let us know if you enjoy this format as it was something a little different than what we’re used to. If we do more like it we’ll rehearse the questions rather than just rattle them off a Kindle. Probs add some tasty graphics too!

Questions answered in this episode:

  • One of my coworkers is British. He asked me if I’d like him to make me a cup of tea. I politely declined, and he has been cold and stand-offish with me ever since. Did I violate some sort of sacred rite or something by refusing this man’s tea?
  • Spaniard here. Can you behave when you come down here?
  • How do you spend your one day of sunshine each year? Is it considered a holiday?
  • Is it true that each city or county has its own accent?
  • How is your relationship with the Irish?
  • You alright?
  • Is tea really that big a thing there?
  • Any luck catching them swans then?
  • How realistic is The Inbetweeners?
  • Is your PM as big of a douche as he’s portrayed as being in the news?
  • But really, how much do you love Fish & Chips?
  • Is the healthcare system really that great? In the US, those against universal healthcare talk about the long lines, the lack in research and development, and other problems that develop as a result of universal healthcare. What is your experience?
  • Does it get confusing using metric, imperial and English units of measurement in day to day life?
  • Can anyone tell me what happens when the queen reaches 100, like does she send a card to herself or?
  • Does everyone really love Stephen Fry as much as I (non-UK person) do?
  • What… What are crumpets?…
  • Are there no commercials on BBC TV channels?
  • Beans on Toast?
  • Why does Nando’s have to be cheeky? what’s wrong with regular Nando’s?
  • Why aren’t you shipping Jelly Tots abroad anymore?
  • What character on Peep Show do you fancy the most? I’m partial to Big Suze.
  • Like eskimos with snow, do you have 100 different words for rain?
  • Why vinegar? ALWAYS with the vinegar…
  • Do you like your accents as much we like your accents?
  • What do you think of how multicultural Britain is?
  • Is getting drunk then getting a kebab really that popular? Why?
  • Is Mr Blobby supposed to be terrifying?
  • What do you think of the current gun laws in the United Kingdom?
  • How do you pronounce “Worcestershire” in Worcestershire sauce?
  • Mcvities Digestives are absolutely fucking fantastic, I eat a whole package whenever I find them in the states. Do you guys find them as amazing as I do or are they boring to you? Also, why are they called digestives? They don’t seem to be anything more than a cookie.
  • Why do you have carpet in your toilets?
  • What is the difference between arse and ass?
  • Are there any warmer weather areas in the UK?
  • What is it with the banter? I have a bunch of friends from the UK that I play games with and everything is banter. It seems to me that some of the younger (and the immature older ones) ones use it more like an excuse to be a dick rather than for it to be actual banter.
  • Is there a line where you guys draw where it stops being banter and someone is just being a knobhead? Or as an American am I just more sensitive to things like that?
