Just wanted to post in this here thread, so later I can say I was here.
It was a lot of fun to read the whole thing through at one gulp, the over-the-top impersonation, the buy-in by most of the hospitable folks here (no on-line community is better), the suspense (will someone see through it!) and then geoff's great post followed by the great research by yurintroubl. I was literally laughing out loud.
I needed this laugh today. So thanks to all, even the OP for unwittingly providing great entertainment.
Yeah it was pretty funny reading it all the way through. I saw it earlier but didn't get to read it till tonight. I kept reading and reading thinking "this is a crock", lol. Geoff finally called him out but then got called out himself!
lol, some people took this hook, line, and sinker!
This bloke is as genuine a Londoner as I am a Guatamalan.
Firstly his syntax is completely inappropriate for a Londoner. As someone who speaks six languages he should know that.
Secondly he states that there are no sports other than boxing over there which are violent. Ever seen rugby? It's a bloodbath and if you've spent more than a few months in the country you are fully aware of it. It's not a peripheral sport like lacrosse.
Finally, for now, he can't spell in English. Favor is spelt favour in England. Guvnar is Guvnor and it's keep your chin up.
I have this bad habit of responding before reading the entire thread.
Thanks to other people for bringing this up, I didn't want to be the one that pointed it out, but as you guys will have seen from all the English people on here, we don't really talk any different from you guys. And we definitely don't talk like this...
Although there are a fair few Saints fans in London compared to other teams. Pats / Bills *seem* to be the biggest, but it's a fairly difficult thing to diagnose..
Hey saintslvr will you tell us who you really are? It seems like the people you fooled yesterday are cool with it and think it's funny. Just wondering if you'll continue to act English or was just a one thread joke?
