The UK explained

My DH forwarded this graphic to me. No idea where it came from originally.

Loved it!

Iota said...

So the Scots and the Welsh have nothing in common? Nothing? They could have put "extra rain" in that section. Or castles.

Hard to argue with that!

Star said...

I think they should take Sean Connery out of the Scotland part because he hasn't lived there for ages! It is a bit irritating when someone is very "Scottish" in their outlook, yet chooses to live somewhere else. What does that say?
I think I would substitute him with Andy Murray for the moment, but keep a watch on the situation.
The chart is very interesting, isn't it. I've never seen it before.
Blessings, Star

Love it! I'm going to put on Expat Mums if that's OK (with a reference back to you).

Iota - yes, castles should have been the thing in common for Scotland and Wales!

Star - I know what you mean about Sean Connery, but I'm sure a lot of people do think of him as being quintessentially Scottish.

Beer is apparently at the centre of our universe in the British Isles!

A Modern Mother - sure go ahead. Thanks for linking back here :-)

Hi,

"Beer is apparently at the centre of our universe in the British Isles!"

I don't sense an issue here...

Wales:

I was thinking Manic Street Preachers, Stereophonics, Catherine Zeta Jones but then I realised the main ommission:


SHEEP!!!

Maximus said...

Oops - omission!

Almost American said...

Maximus - Welsh sheep - of course!

Kat said...

I borrowed this to put on my blog and linked back to you. I hope that is ok. My mind isn't working today and this is just hysterical.

Insomniac Mummy said...

In a word:

Correct!
