  1. The link didn't work.

    So I presume it's this:

    Try it now! That is a pretty bitching suit though.
     
  3. Wait- don't Scots [DEL]hate[/DEL] like to poke fun of the Brits- like the Irish..?*
    :bag:


    *NOT about to say *Scottish, Irish- whatever. After all they're the same thing, anyway* like so many of my ignorant fellow 'mericans... :)

    On topic- cool. I had one years ago, but the buttflap was kinda sideways, like a fly. Goofy.
     
  4. STRICTLY in the interest of cultural enlightenment, I believe *bitching* is what my wife does at me; *bitchen* is a late 50s/60s-era term for *cool*, as in *bitchen Camaro* :cool:
     

  5. Scots are Brits ;) , we may, on occasion, poke fun at the auld enemy (England).

    Great Britain is Scotland, England & Wales, the United Kingdom is Scotland, England, Wales & Northern Ireland. Just a nugget of info to share there :)



    Link still isn't showing an actual product (it may be my computer), did a search on their website. That's a pretty awesome onesie!
     
  6. Thank you sir, for the clarification & also for taking it nicely. Was vaguely aware of which nations(countries? I am really quite uneducated but willing to learn :))comprise the UK- although won't the occasional Irishman argue the inclusion of Ireland? Personally I have no opinion one way or the other but again- like to learn as much cultural/ethnic info as I can.

    Lastly- IME, at least in the US, a *onesie* looks like this:

    They don't always say *boob man* but perhaps should...

    And just to finish that off.

    This is the flag of the United Kingdom, the Union Jack.

    Not actually Englands flag, as is commonly mistaken.

    This is Englands flag, St. Georges Cross.
    st-georges-cross.

    No sir, Northern Ireland is part of the UK, but the Republic of Ireland is not.

    Ireland the island contains 2 countries.

  14. They get called onesies too. Basically anything thats a one-piece :)

    It's all good, quite enjoy a good natured ribbing. :D

    Ireland and Great Britain are islands. With the Republic of Ireland & Northern Ireland being the countries of Ireland and Scotland, England & Wales being the countries of Great Britain.

    The political control over the United Kingdom is centralised in England, but there is some devolved political control within the separate countries.
