I have a good friend who's Scottish - after he told me how he wants Brazil to smack England good, I played ignorant and asked him why. This was his response (this is in Celsius, I imagine):

40 degrees-Californians shiver uncontrollably.
People in Scotland sunbathe.

35 degrees-Italian cars won't start.
People in Scotland drive with the windows down.

20 degrees-Floridians wear coats, gloves, and wool hats.
People in Scotland throw on a T-shirt.

15 degrees-Californians begin to evacuate the state.
People in Scotland go swimming.

Zero degrees-New York landlords finally turn up the heat.
People in Scotland have the last bbq before it gets cold.

10 degrees below zero-People in Miami cease to exist.
People in Scotland lick flagpoles.

20 degrees below zero-Californians fly away to Mexico.
People in Scotland throw on a light jacket.

80 degrees below zero-Polar bears begin to evacuate the Artic.
Scottish Boy Scouts postpone "Winter Survival" classes until it gets cold enough.

100 degrees below zero-Santa Claus abandons the North Pole.
People in Scotland pull down their ear flaps.

173 degrees below zero-Ethyl alcohol freezes.
People in Scotland get frustrated when they can't thaw their kegs.

297 degrees below zero-Microbial life start to disappear.
Scottish cows complain of farmers with cold hands.

460 degrees below zero-ALL atomic motion stops.
People in Scotland start saying "chilly, you cauld an aw?"

500 degrees below zero-Hell freezes over.
SCOTTISH PEOPLE SUPPORT ENGLAND IN THE WORLD CUP!!!!!!

Wow! It isn't really that funny untill the end which I also add isn't really funny itself. But it gave me a good thought. If the British Isles combined they would be an unstopable force, with England, Ireland,Scotland, And Wales.

You didn't find funny? I guess we just have different brands of humor.

Well yes, Giggs is one of the big names, but also some good Irish talent such as Quinn and Keane.

Not all that funny-I mean its a little humurous here and there but it doesnt actually give a reason for them to support Brazil just a reason not to like England...

They might be unstoppable but it wouldnt go down too well with the non english. England always want the other uk teams to do well but the other uk teams all hate england.

An english mate told me the other day that he thought the Scots hated the English badly until he watched some England games in Dublin pubs.

btw no Irish players would make it onto an all UK team (go figure and all that)

Got this in me mail:

_________________________

Please feel free to add a condition of your own to the bottom of the list before forwarding it on to your friends. If you cc it back to the sender, I will forward the complete list to the Queen of England and to Tony Blair by 6 am on Friday. That gives them a good 90 minutes to meet our conditions

3. Sworn declaration that 1966 will never again be mentioned, nor footage from that event screened
4. BBC and ITV will 'go to black', even during a crucial period of a
match, if fans begin to sing 'Rule Britannia'
5. Mandatory 10-year sentence for anyone using a term implying racial superiority, including but not limited to use of the following terms:
paddy, ****, ****, ******, *** wog, *****, paki, frog, eyetie, argie. Sentence must be carried out in the 'foreign' country slurred, and to involve hard labour on infrastructural project.
6. Return of (all) the Hugh Lane paintings
7. Return of the stolen bicycles (melted down to make gunboats)
8. Margaret Thatcher to be tried for war crimes
9. Jimmy Hill to be tracked down, tried for crimes against civilisation.
10. Bobby Moore to admit he stole that bracelet and make reparations
11. Give the Falklands to who they really belong: the French
12. The crime of singing of "Two world wars and one world cup" to carry a death sentence.
13. Admit to the fact that their recent sporting heroes are Canadian .
14. To get rid of Gazza off the ITV studio panel.Or else teach him how to speak. !
