Passed along to my Dad from our British Friends:
The English are feeling the pinch in relation to the recent virus
threat and have therefore raised their threat level from “Miffed” to
“Peeved.” Soon, though, the level may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or
even “A Bit Cross.”
The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940
when tea supplies nearly ran out.
The virus has been re-categorized from “Tiresome” to “A Bloody
Nuisance.” The last time the British issued a “Bloody Nuisance” warning
level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.
The Scots have raised their threat level from “Pissed Off” to
“Let’s Get the Bastard.” They don’t have any other levels. This is the
reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the
last 300 years.
And from our Italian Friends: Anyone fancy some Pappardelle al Cinghiale Tuscano Urbano?
