God save our gracious Queen
Long live our noble Queen
God save the Queen
Send her victorious
Happy and glorious
Long to reign over us
God save the Queen

O Lord our God arise
Scatter her enemies
And make them fall
Confound their politics
Frustrate their knavish tricks
On Thee our hopes we fix
God save us all

Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour
Long may she reign
May she defend our laws
And ever give us cause
To sing with heart and voice
God save the Queen

Not in this land alone
But be God's mercies known
From shore to shore
Lord make the nations see
That men should brothers be
And form one family
The wide world over

From every latent foe
From the assassins blow
God save the Queen
O'er her thine arm extend
For Britain's sake defend
Our mother, prince, and friend
God save the Queen

Great Britain! Home of the Beatles! Shakespeare! Sir Arthur Conan Doyle! Cary Grant! Charles Dickens! Christian Bale! David Bowie! Tim Curry! The Flasherman! Chicken Tikka Masala!

On the weekend that recognises that a small band of rebels, led by a slave owner and Native American killer, can be free to create a country, let us not forget the country that spawned it, and Australia, and, let's face it, owned pretty much the whole damned world.

Stand up and be counted, my fellow Brits! Stand up and salute our flag, our way of being, and the most famous Brit of them all...Jerry Springer.

Dieu protège la reine
De sa main souveraine!
Vive la reine!
Qu'un règne glorieux,
Long et victorieux
Rende son peuple heureux.
Vive la reine!

Oui oui

I wonder... if you shipped all your country's criminals off to an island somewhere halfway across the world, let them stew for a few decades, then went back and conversed with one of them, what would he say?

Probably something along the lines of "G'day, mate."

I thought The Stig was the most famous Brit...

Recent studies have shown The Stig to be an advanced robot, sent back in time to kill speed trial times.

Hooray for Mother England. Sure she's got a somewhat disfunctional family, but we're getting along allright.

*Sneaks up on America and gives it a wet willy, then points to Australia.*

He did it!

The only reason you're not the 51st state yet is that some of us realize your greatest contribution to the world: Hockey

PS: Thanks for letting us keep the Stanley Cup all these years

No, the only reason they're not the 51st state yet is because they've yet to get off their asses and divorce themselves from... eughh... Quebec. *shudder*

We don't want Quebec. Get rid of them, Canada - then we'll talk.
