    I had an English co-worker who started talking about a fire in the guard shack.
    I didn’t realize at first that he meant a heater!

    And they use torches when they need to see in the dark.

    Yeah … an electric “fire” to go with an “ice lolly” (aka. popsicle – US or “icy pole” – AUS), “sweets” (aka. candy – US or “lollies” – AUS) and sometimes a “buttie” – filling between two lumps of bread (aka. sandwich) … one of the most popular fillings in the UK being “chips” (aka. fries or french fries – US … we Aussies also call ’em chips).


    I married a Pom and brought her back to Aus with me.

    It took me a minute to remember what a “Pentium” was…

    Reading Foxtrot Classics is like taking a “History of Technology” course at the local community college.

    even though, many of us speak english, it doesn’t mean the same thing. and, it could be worse, it could be welsh or icelandic.

    Chip butties are classic, but we also call sandwiches ‘sarnies’ too. (Buttie is an alternative spelling, we spelled it ‘butty’.) And I still spoil myself occasionally with bacon butties or even a crisp butty!!

    I still don’t get what chips and crisps have to do with overclocking Pentiums and the World Almanac.

    I’m guessing if you overclock a pentium it overheats and turns burnt & crispy. So he assumes they must burn their chips so much that chip & crisp have become synonymous.

    I could try to explain further, but i think I’ve already sucked all the humour out of the joke.

    Also in England, they call sweaters jumpers, and shoes trainers.

    Also in England, the “handicapped restroom” is the “disabled toilet”.

    @JanCinLV

    What do they call the broken toilet?

    @opentomeet

    And in Scotland, you can make your sarnies with a loaf of bread called a crusty bloomer.
