Pimping this British Thing For All It's Worth

I now have a completely legitimate excuse to work phrases like "what a wanker!" and "it's the dog's bollocks" and "PONCE!" into my bloggy lexicon, because the kind folks at MamaPop have asked me to be a contributing writer at their place.

Yes please, guv'na!

Head on over to read the first of my installments of Pop Britannia and be wowed by how artfully I can work that cor blimey factor into deliciously trivial pop-culture news from across the pond. (It would be awfully, awfully nice of you, chaps)




(bloomin' heck. i'm making m'self nauseous already. I'm laying it on thicker than Madge!)

strike a light guv but your new spot on mamapop is simply devine!

congrats. beyond that, i got nothin'. my cultural knowledge about britain is seriously lacking. perhaps that's why i need to start reading you at your new home away from home.

I'll go take a peek. I'll never forget the look on my boyfriend's (from east London) face when he was asked to "Grab a treat from the fanny pack."

I'm going to have to find a way to spin being canadian into something cool. Oh wait. Every second mommy blogger is canuck. That won't do.

Aboot. Roooooooofe. Colour. Hockey.

Just adding some international colour to your comments ;-)

Luv a duck! Bleddy brilliant!

From one Brit to another, gel.

(Er, that's gel as in the Leicester dialect of girl, not as in the hair product)

Trying to fancy Charles. Oh, the vast quantities of booze that would require.

I think Harry might be more my speed. I can't quite get past the striking resemblance William shares with his mum.

I read your piece. Very humorous! I did, for a few weeks, have a thing for Zara Phillips but I couldn't quite keep it up due to guessing what she will turn in to, i.e., her mother.

By the way, there are no puns in this comment!

Congratulations! You've got a faithful reader in me.

Hey, Mimi, we'll work on it. I have some great Ottawa Valley lines.

I will definitely check it out - I love me some MamaPop. BTW - can you explain/confirm for me what it means in BritSpeak to call someone a Sharon - does it refer to Sharon from EastEnders? Just wonderin'
