at cms yesterday the pioneer students were looking at culture and identity in relation to englishness which is always a lot of fun. if you've not come across kate fox's watching the english it's a must read for anyone from another culture trying to work out why the english are so confusing! two things people pointed out were @soverybritish twitter account (ht: kim) with gems such as
The unwelcome surprise of someone telling you how they are after you've asked them how they are
Saying you're pleased with your haircut despite the deep inner sadness it's causing you
and this series of posters in the guardian following the ministers rumoured negative advertising campaign to deter potential immigrants from comning to britain which i confess i found hilarious (ht: johnny)!
I laughed out loud at the Guardian poster series as well! Will check out the Twitter account, too.

I'm a bit surprised there wern't any digs at the monarchy or the Spice Girls. But this is hysterical. Thanks.
