Shipping Forecast

Some of my friends not blessed to have lived in the British Isles may not be familiar with the tradition of listening to the Shipping Forecast on the wireless, and so will have totally failed to appreciate the delicious nostalgia for the land of Marmite on crumpets and Melton Mowbray pork pie with Branston Pickle that is conjured up for expats like me by the tune in yesterday's post.

So, for you, here is the Shipping Forecast...

 

No?

You don't get British humour (sic) either, do you?

ROTFL!

I am still thoroughly convinced that there is no such place as the Firth of Forth.

This is something you Brits invented just to have some fun with us yanks.

Tillerman said...

Busted!

Now will you Yanks please admit that there are no such things as a "cheese steak" or a "chicken fry"?

What's worse is a chicken fried steak! Also why the (sic) after humour? You're only supposed to use that when the spelling is wrong...

My bother in Law is called Chris Lewis. A good friend of his used to read the shipping forecast. She lost it one evening when she had to read the words "high winds off the But of Lewis".

Good it's great to be British and to find that hilarious.
