Right, so the british language has to change because America despite there being many words with different meanings between the two nations. Almost every word is offensive in another language or culture. I’d tell the Uppity Canadian to sling their hook, personally and I would go for the record of most times saying uppity in the next show.

Also, add to the ever growing list of racist words.

I will continue to use the word upperty for as long as our historical colonial cousins continue to massacre our ears with those brainless, inane, overly exaggerated babblings otherwise known as soccer commentaries.

I only use the word upperty rarely but when I do it gives me a warm and tingly feeling of anticipation ahead of the next time I use the word upperty (with much gusto and relish) several months or even years down the line.

Flounces off with self in an indignantly entitled to be offended manner. Pah!
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

There is another word, one that really should be banned, ‘gotten’! An abomination of a word, horrible American import. What does it actually mean? English words express everything better!
