How many of us are British?

It seems that a lot of us are British or have lived there at some point. This made me wonder if lusting after an Elise is a genetic thing or if it may come from drinking the water over there.

Hello Ara,

Anything to keep the people happy...I was going to put "First you get the money, then you get the power, then you get the Elise!" but it would not fit...

Me! Born and bred. The original and best

Keep buying Elisii boys and girls - our GDP needs all the help it can get, plus it's time we had another war with France I'm sure and that always costs a few quid!

I am 75% Scottish, 25% Brit. But I was born in US. My British parts have been here since before the Revolutionary War, my ancestors were among the founding fathers of Harvard and Yale University. Ahem! So I deserve an Elise, right?

I'm 1/4 Welsh, does that count?
I've been to the British Virgin Islands, but I guess that doesnt count either.

I'm also Irish, German and French, so I'm sure that various ancestors of mine at one time or another have probably killed each other in differant wars.

Don't think I'm a Brit, but I might be since I like Faulty Towers

The favorite food in England is Indian. I put a St George's cross on my MINI. Additionally I'm have having loads of fun driving on their roundabouts...

Does that make me a Brit? Nah, I'm not sarcastic enough....

I've been to London a few times. Also visited Bath, York, Edinborough, to name a few places.

I can't be British, since I don't like to dress up in women's clothing, nor do I have bad teeth.

No offense, just trying to get even for all those SELOC posts about fat, stupid Americans!
