The English & Their Tea


with a Modern Twist
This made me laugh so much I was crying but I don't think my mother would approve. If you similarly would have a problem with rapping and bad language, it's probably better if you don't check out this movie.

You might have a little trouble with the download - I had to reload a few times before I got to see it the whole way through. Just in - Addition: This link should work better or even this one!



PS. Perhaps this will inspire you to throw a full-on English Tea Party on April 23rd (St George's Day). That's what I will be doing to make the most of What's For Pud?!

    That is muthaf*ckin' hilarious! If I had to pick a favorite line, I'd end up quoting the whole thing.

    Woo-hoo! Afternoon tea break! Yah, baby.

    For people who haven't seen the SNL piece (which prompted this English response), here it is: http://www.holylemon.com/SNLNarniaRap.html

    LOVE it! Did you see you can buy t-shirts with lines from the rap?

    I'm older than your mum, I'll bet, but I think it's hilarious. Maybe that's because I hang out with rude boys (my teenaged grandsons) who love to do videos, too.

    Thanks for brightening my afternoon, Sam.

    PS It was easier to understand Britspeak than most American rap lyrics -- and maybe that's just as well.

    Ahah Sam, how did you find that?? Funny funny! Which makes me think *so* much how many times I am teasing my Brit and Irish friends about their "cup of tea"! It all boils down to tea!

    This is hysterical!!!
    I love the line about dipping scones in tea (all other condiments are whack...).

    I thought the SNL one was the funniest thing I'd ever seen but this gives it a run for it's money!!!

    I suddenly have the urge to brew a pot of tea -- after I finish wiping the tears away.

    Hi...I'm new to blogging but I just wanted to say I love your site.

    I liked your idea about St George's Day and am working on a recipe.

    Regards

    is it just me or does the smaller look like a MUCH hipper Woody Allen?

    I've been walking around for the past two days singing "Tea motherf***er, tea motherf***er" (and trying to make sure I'm not doing it out loud for all to hear).

    So funny, thanks Sam!

    Hey everyone - this was forwarded to me by a Brit colleague at work. I drink my tea every morning to a different rhythm even since!
