And I suppose you think that "center" should be spelt "centre"? And that a cookie is a buscuit and a truck is "lorry" (probably spelt that wrong)?
Yes CENTRE should be spelt this way because it is the proper way of spelling it! you managed to get lorry right (well done) but buscuit you must be having a laugh! you got the harder bit correct and the easiest bit wrong its spelt Biscuit. (i say the harder bit when even that is very easy to spell)

actually we have cookies, we even call some of them american cookies. a cookie is used in reference to a rough form of one of our biscuits. the term biscuits is more reserved for a more refined well managed version.

ps is both side having culture a prerequisite to being cultrally offesive? cus we have years of it

not when it involves national pride, i think this thread is likely to deteriorate into racism, which is fine if u like that kind of thing, but i'm not sure the powers that be would let it carry on

you havent offended me, i have been laughing at this but someone will probably read this and get very offended and in turn get very offensive which will then start a viscious circle of offensiveness which will lead to this topic being locked.

you hate the french? that's a strong statement! have you heard that in america some want to switch the name of French Fries (i think you call them chips) into Freedom Fries, becuase the french didn't support us in the war?

Refering to the above statement i fail to see where the Italics can be found, (i have never used italics in this before so it better work!)
