Quotes from the UK
Gakked from witling because these deserve to be shared and they are so damn funny, proving once again that it takes more than a coordinated bomb attack to ruffle the Brits.

Quotes taken from news sources and LJs in response to the bombing:

"She's down south...where it's damp."

Hee! We had a river flowing down the high street last week when we got whacked by torrential rains out of nowhere. Damn is definitely us right about now. *g*

*hugs you back*

Us Brits really know how to react to a crisis. This quote could be from Giles:

"We took on the Romans, the Saxons, the Danes, the French, William Wallace, the Black Plague, the Roundheads, the Great Fire, Napoleon, the Nazis, and the Blitz, and we're still here. You terrorists are bloody amateurs." - unknown at the moment

Thanks for the quotes! Hilarious and really needed in a situation like this, I think.

I know, me too.

It just proves that you cannot break the British sense of humour. *g*

Thank you! Laughed so hard I damn near broke something!!

I suppose we did manage a truly British reaction to the situation, didn't we? Grumbling at the inconvenience and then getting on with things 'cos we've been through a lot worse. I love this country!

Tea and chocolate cake - the British panacea for everything. *g*


You can bomb us, but you can't stop us laughing at you.
