OK Guys, Times Up.

    John Holdenposted 5 years ago

    To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II:

    In light of your immediate failure to financially manage yourselves and also in recent years your tendency to elect incompetent Presidents of the USA and therefore not able to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

    Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except Kansas , which she does not fancy).

    Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

    Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated sometime next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

    To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

    1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,' 'favour,' 'labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be replaced by the suffix '-ise.'Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up 'vocabulary').


    Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ''like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter 'u'' and the elimination of '-ize.' '

    3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

    4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can't sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you're not ready to shoot grouse.

    5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

    6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

    7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.)

    8.You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

    9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. New Zealand beer is also acceptable, as New Zealand is pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth - see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

    10. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialogue in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one's ears removed with a cheese grater.

    11. You will cease playing American football. There are only two kinds of proper football; one you call soccer, and rugby (dominated by the New Zealanders). Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).

    12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America . Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the Australians (World dominators) first to take the sting out of their deliveries.

    13. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.

    14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

    15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

    God Save the Queen!


    Merry Christmas all lol

      How about just turning over the crown jewels to help us out a bit?   If you do, we'll concede to everything except #14.  If we must concede to #14, then we shall have to invoke #4.  If we can't do either #14 or #4, we shall have to break the Royal Queen's Bird China in a fit of American brutishness for which I'll apologize ahead of time.  Are contractions allowed?

(And don't forget the jewels.  All of them.  I'll say no more on the subject.  Oh, wait, I'm the subject, her subject,  I mean Her Majesty's Royal Subject.  (Wow, it's just a whole new way of writing.)

      I'm thinking that we kicked the crap out of England and took our freedom from them. Now that you mention it England still owes us their freedom for beating a bunch of Nazis in the 1940's.

      How about we acquire the crown jewels and call it even?

          "Let them eat cake!"  I must warn you though in the spirit of full disclosure, you may have some serious indigestion from eating southern cake.  It's about as sweet as anything you've ever tasted x100.  And you can't eat anything else unless you like fat rolled in cheese then fried in bacon grease and covered with more cheese.  Not even cheese.  Cheese food.

    I think I saw the OP in late 2000, except it was "inability to elect a President" instead of "tendency to elect incompetent Presidents."

    Well, as I have been to bed as all sensible Brits have done it appears that there is little dissention and the matter is settled.
    Well done, perhaps someone can make a hub on crumpet recipes- you will need that with your tea

      OK dude I'll give you that and I think the president was a moron when in return for a priceless pen holder made from the wood of the HMS Gannet, a Victorian era antislavery ship, he gave the British prim minister a DVD collection. What a slap in the face.

    I think thats a great idea John [O.P.], of course you realize that The US has unfortunately fallen into a bad cultural attitude. May be just the ticket except this time  we wouldn't take prisoners nor allow tea and crumpets time out in battle ,while we kick your a$$ out of America again!

    Fair dinkum you guys sure know how to confuse a blonde...all this is way above my head. Got to go pack up my medical kit, my neighbor Hugh Jass electrocuted himself. He was frying bacon out on the barbie last night, and he got hit by a shooting star and we just found him in the outhouse singing Rudolph Red Nose Roo with a stubbie in the other hand.

        Ok, so for Americans and anyone else who may not understand them, it helps if you understand the antique British monetary system:  Two farthings = One Ha'penny.  Two ha'pennies = One penny.  Three pennies = A Thrupenny Bit.  Two Thrupences =  A Sixpence.  Two Sixpences = One Shilling, or Bob.  Two Bob = A Florin.  One Florin and One Sixpence = Half a Crown.  Four Half Crowns = Ten Bob Note.  Two Ten Bob Notes = One Pound or 240 pennies.  One Pound and One Schlling  = One Guinea.

        Those lovely people resisted decimalized currency for a long time because they thought it was too complicated!
