Christopher Moore, the author of the excellent Lamb, is in England and has made some interesting observations, including:
- The waiter will never bring the check unless you ask for it. It would be like asking you to leave. They will bring you a cot and a wubby so you can sleep well, but they won’t bring the bill.
- English food is not as bad as they say, especially Thai.
- Scottish people can understand you, but you cannot understand them. The only thing you know how to say in their language is, “She kinna take warp nine for long, Cap’n.”
