20 Hilarious Things Only British People Say.

We can all agree that the British accent is among the sexiest ones out there. It’s just music to one’s ears. It’s one of the things that most girls find attractive in a guy. But at the end of the day, it’s just an accent like any other accent, and whether you find it ugly or attractive, it’s based on your own personal idiosyncrasies. Our job is to extract fun from any aspect of language possible, and today’s victim happens to be the so admired British accent. So here are hilarious things you can only hear in Britain.

  1. What a load of rubbish;
    The examples used vary from Dick Van Dyke doing his excrutiatingly awful Cockney stuff in Mary Poppins to something like broad Yorkshire/Geordie/ Manc/Scouse delete where applicable.
    Innit?
    RJW
    Hertfordshire Hedgehog

  2. Shows how little this person knows about British dialects. And there’s really no such thing as a British accent. 0/10

  3. Reminds me of “Pygmalion” or the song from “My Fair Lady”: “Why can’t the English teach their children how to speak?” These show just a few of the many English regional and class accents.

  4. Even as an American, I realize that this was mostly Cockney accent. The “British accent” is far more varied and diverse than presented here. This like presenting a few southern US phrases as the “American accent”. Still it’s amusing, and hopefully not (too) offensive.

  5. Have you been watching Eastenders on repeat or Mary Poppins, what is a British accent? It’s like saying there is an American accent.

  6. Everybody: The Duke paid his dues to take the dual carriageway to Tunis on Tuesday.

    British: The Juke paid his Jews to take the Jeweled Carriageway to Chewnis on Chewsday.

  7. There’s no such thing as a British accent. British refers to the entire United Kingdom, which consists of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. England alone has multiple accents: contrast Prince Charles’s accent with Michael Caine’s accent.

  8. This is not British accent. This is just either local accent cockney accent or just vulgar accent…..I al French you see. … quite aware of languages evolution but when l heard the Queen ‘s speech about the virus on television l thought my God what a beautiful language…. this is English… cockney is pleasant but local… spoken widely as it is spoken nowadays by young people mostly is just a shame an insult to English language.I may be wrong but this is my opinion .

  9. I’m British,

    I thought this would be funny, boy was I wrong!
    Complete & utter bullsh*t

  10. One does wonder which bit of Britain this refers to. Glottle stops are actually not the norm here.
