This will explain to all Texans everywhere why England lost the war

Now comes this important bulletin from the BBC, alerting Brits to a very dangerous heat wave which will endanger the lives of all who dare to enter the burning hell that is the U.K.  There are even wild claims that the temperature could actually reach 32 degrees celsius!

What, you ask, is that temperature, converted to fahrenheit? Glad you asked. It’s going to be a blistering 89.6 degrees out there.

How ever will the House of Windsor survive it all? Oh, the indignity.

    Considering they ran India and most of Africa for a century, it may just be the current generation. Remember the saying “Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.”

    Which war? Burma?

    Must be something prior to the 1700s, when Great Britain was established. The War of Spanish Succession, perhaps?

    Remember that the British government insisted throughout the 19th century that the red coats wear, well, red coats–woolen, with stiff “stocks” for collars.

    Also, they considered a posting to the west indies a death sentence. Now, that’s where we vacation (if you’re lucky).
