Rooty-tooty point and shooty sounds delightfully fancy.

Aww, cute, some of the Brits are offended.


Don't worry, they'll go back to hating on the USA tomorrow so you can continue your ultra hip anti-American attitudes then. :P

"There are areas in the US where they call shopping carts "trolleys". Mostly in the South I think."

actually, in the south they're typically called 'buggies'

On a side note, what do you call biscuits, if you call cookies biscuits?


An unsweetened scone is very similar to a USA biscuit. Not a sweetened scone - those are usually made roughly circular, cut in half and served cold with jam and cream as a form of cake. Unsweetened scones are savouries, like USA biscuits, and usually served hot cooked on top of a thick stew. If you look for images of "beef cobbler", you'll see what I mean.

WTF is a clammy roger? Sounds like a sordid sexual encounter in a sauna


I'm thinking that it's a play on Jammy Dodger.

In case you don't get those in the USA, it's a brand name of a type of biscuit (cookie to you) that's well known here.

..I've never heard cold on a cob.

I always thought it was "ice lolly."



It is. This picture is a joke. Some of the English is correct (e.g. the thing for pushing your shopping around is a called a trolley here), but some are just made up for a laugh.

Absolutely correct. Why, only yesterday I had a most unpleasant altercation with a young ruffian who attached a cold on a cob and some clammy rogers to the wishy-washies on my Jag. The odourous villein was most disparaging about my attire and insistent on a bout of fisticuffs, so I took out my rooty tooty point and shooty to discourage him.

Rooty-Tooty Point and Shooty made me lol. I could see it, a gang of "british" people.

"alright men! Pull out your Rooty Tooty Point and Shooties, and we'll teach these trencherans what-for!"

This is brilliant. I'm forever telling people how I love to stuff my slappy ham with clammy rogers.

SCfan, let's not get into crass lazy stereotyping, I know it's hard for you fat ignorant Yanks to avoid... ;)

I was annoyed by vimo's post for a second, then I saw that she's only made this post. It's a joke, honey.

The "Queen's English" annoys me sometimes. Its like you've gone out of your way to give stuff crappy names just so that Americans have to come up with less crappy names for them.
