Our recent shock revelation that South Dakota is awash with American Sterotypes™ did not go down too well with one gun-toting Yank. To recap, here is the terrifying truth as captured on Street View: American with hunting rifle and liquor caught on Street View And here is our stateside chum's take on our analysis: At least …
Children Affected by Aids Foundation?
I might be missing something obvious here, but how are you a coward and a fool? Surely the coward needs the gun? I'm not even American or anything.
Union of Sausage Anglers
Once used flint spears they moved on
Brits used to carry guns, but we moved on to Paris Hilton grumble flicks.
Something fishy about men alone in the woods touching each others' guns
If'n y'all ain' rednek....
Y'all ain' sheet...
Anyroadup me duck, when did we "give up our rights like a bunch of yellow bastards?"
What have I been using down t'local gun club to win me trophies?
I'll admit to being a bastard and being a bit peaky but yellow? Never!
All I can say is Wow. Just goes to show that no matter where you in the world, there are always stupid people right there to prove how dumb they are and that rednecks exist everywhere. All he needs is a can of Coors in his hand to complete the hillbilly look.
If THAT's the FotW...
everyone must really be on the chill pills.
Clearly you / we are not pissing enough people off here!
Get working on it, you lazy shower of pacifist, ass kissing pansies!
SB, wine glass down, and get that whip back in your hand woman. Just because it's Friday afternoon is NO EXCUSE for slacking!
...pukes like Mr. Kelly here that make the rest of us embarrased to leave the States. American Stereotype(TM) indeed.
Peter Kelly NOB
CAAF = Cockfighting Across America Foundation ?
Get your facts right
We didn't give up our rights, we never had any.
Tsk, what an idiot.
PS - for balance, can you find a picture of a Brit with bad teeth wearing a bowler hat and drinking tea whilst playing croquet? If you can, he's got a lucrative career ahead of him playing foreign creeps and baddies in a succession of formulaic Hollywood films.
And again HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
FAO Peter Kelly
We are yellow because we dont have (not allowed) guns?!? You see, your losing the argument already with your statement.
What a buffoon!
Like Billy Connelly said about Reagan:
"My dad's half his age and we don't trust him with the remote control to the telly!"

We're really sorry about this whole mess over the past 200 years.. We promise to do better the next 200 years.
We also promise to put an end to all this "We kicked Blighty Arse in 2 wars, and pulled it out of 2 more."
PLEASE keep Wacky Jacqui away from our government.

Utterly Stupid Arsehole?
Uniformly Simple Americans?
Who's the braver?
The chap who faces the day armed only with dry wit, or the slackjaw carrying an assault rifle?
Yellow - oh we are are we?
Let's not pussy foot around the issue, it's because of the septics (and their kind) that i have to:
(1) Stand outside the pub for a fag while the womens institute play volley ball in the pub cresh.
(2) Listen to my kids end their sentences an octave above when they started speaking.
(3) Be concerned with the Pitt, Jolie, Aniston love triangle.
(4) Not be concerned that American football is just an excuse for grown men to dress up as tampons.
(5) Be impressed when a wrangler wearing in-bred lasoos a 6 month old calf with a broken leg, while onlookers cry at the site of a parachutist entering the rodeo arena while playing 'the star spangled banner on a nose flute.
If you are so hard, Mr. Yankee Doodle Dandy, get over here with your mates for a proper rumble (thats another thing the 'let's get ready to rumble' debarcle before a boxing match........Remeber the Lewis, Tison fight?) Incidentaly, if you would be so kind as to leave that very large weapon at home and read up on the Queensbury Rules on the flight over..........that's of course if there are any flights coming out of America as they tend to be grounded if a wasp enters the departure lounge!..........Oh yes - 9-11, don't you mean 11 -09 or are you too soft to even put your day before your month?
If you are after my contact details they are - Carol Thatcher, BBC House, London, Blighty
Cockfighting Across America Foundation, apparently. I think... no, I HOPE they mean chickens. Can you imagine the light saber noises for added comedy?
I know, I'm going...
New Monitor please...
... gotta love it.
I don't know about anyone else, but I cry myself to sleep everynight for giving up our rights to bear arms and shoot one another :D
Could it be:
Uncompromisingly Selfish Attitude.
they let you have guns for a reason
and that reason is Darwinism...
also "Yellow Bastards".. not exactly the Queens English !!!
Yeah right. I'd like to see him come and have a go without his gun.
He should ask his own armed forces how cowardly us brits are. Especially the ones we helped train.
At least he proved you were spot on with the stereotype. But then he wouldn't understand irony would he?
Good question, what does CAAF mean?
google's no help. Probably not Children Affected by AIDS Foundation in this context.
USA at least means Estados Unidos de America or perhaps États Unis d'Amérique, but I figure you knew that already.
USA = Knob headed Yank
Nice P3nis extension/Rifle.
( PS about title; Because most of them can't spell either).
But you are sick:
CAAF - Cockfighting Across America Foundation
Surely this is correct and it isn't something else like: US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.
Now put it away before the police arresting you for being a flasher.
As for the American moron moaning about Brits giving up rights to bear arms, where exactly has that right got Americans? Your country is nothing but a war monger and run by criminals, your people paranoid, and the fact that any nut can get virtually any gun shows that your country is well and truly fecked up. The amount of massacres because of your gun laws show that your country has nothing to be proud of.
Lester, I didn't know you were a member of the Cockfighting Across America Federation. Bravo, sir, for fighting all those American cocks.
Means United States Army - although I'm sure that the vast majority of the brave men and women of our Armed forces wouldn't react quite so aggressively to a little friendly prod.
Flames - because even nerds love the smell of napalm in the morning!
Wrong way round
How is it that the Brits are yellow?
They are the ones prepared to walk the streets without guns.
The cowards are those who insist on being armed and somehow equate that with respect.
... the yank is ill-informed. Us Brits do still have the right to own firearms. What we don't have the right to do is own military weapons which have no use but to kill humans.
Pistols are an easily concealed personal protection sidearm of limited range which have no role in pest control or hunting. Therefore they are not permitted. Automatic weapons are designed for spraying an area. These too are not permitted. Learn how to shoot a rifle accurately and you don't need to loose off a whole clip to get that rabbit, or use a shotgun which will leave you something to cook in the pot.
No animal hunting or pest control is suitable for an uzi, a Barrett 50mm, an M16 or an AK47. So Mr Yank, if you own one, what exactly are you planning it use it for?
Black helicopter as it's probably privately owned by someone called Randy and equipped with weaponry that would make Arnie envious!
Real men don't need guns.
Doesn't the fact that we get through life without the need for guns to protect us make the Brits less 'yellow'?
Go on the mean streets of Britain and you'll find we can kill each other with knives. Not guns like those American pussies.
Guns in Street View
A quick click on the 'street view' icon and then 'search nearby' for 'gun' and we'll see the person in question is *in the parking lot of a gun store*. He's literally 3 parking spaces from the front door of the Dakota Arms dealer at the corner of 7th and Main. A little less of a 'OH NOEZ' moment, I'd suggest.
Perfectly acceptable grammar and spelling, no exclamation marks (never mind multiple exclamation marks), no swearing worthy of the name, and only one word capitalised. What does this amateur think he's doing?
well shucks Cleetus..
..us limeys sure are yeller. Why, y'all don' see us standin' up to that thar Hitler feller or nuthin'..... guess if we wuz brave like those fine folks in the US of A, we'da stayed at home until the bad guys declared war on us (while screwin' our so called Allies fer every last cent) then joined in halfway through un say we dun wun it fer the team.
And then later we cud invade little Asian countries in the name of dmawcrawcy, freedom and the American way...
(any chance we can have a burning American flag icon? drives the colonials up the wall, dont'cha know, old bean! pip-pip!)
Paris cuz she's our best friend now and she ain't never been bothered if mine's yeller or not, y'all!
About what I expected
From the richest Third World nation on the planet
He's got a point...
...I'm scared of the mad gun toting lunatics.
Bud, Chuck and Randy
He says that like every Bud, Chuck and Randy being allowed to carry guns has worked out well for them. Maybe he doesn't get out much. I wouldn't either with all those gun totting civies on every street corner (or car park).
see no wonder inocent people in america get killed and carry guns around cause there pocksey goverment cant do shit to stop it at least in the uk where trying to reduce it and this is tipical americans they prefer to fight using guns and not with there fists what cowards they are they think having a gun makes them such big arseholes well guess what americans get a life you dont need guns to fight. screw you yankees
on the brink
The thing that would scare some people the most is, he might be be holding a CIGARETTE! in his right hand. The booze looks faked though. Plus everyone here in the USA knows that you always hold your booze and your gun in different hands. Holding them in the same hand is only excusible if you are holding another gun in your other hand.
I don't think the Brits are yellow. Bastards yes, but not yellow.
But seeing articles from last year where your MPs are worried that images of knives in "the dark knight" could harm the delicate British youth... Well, that certainly puts you on the suspect list (or at least your children).
Campbell Army Airfield?
Now THERE'S a stereotype that saves time.
Methink he was referring to teeth colour...
Where do you find these jokers?! He says "didn't give up our rights" which is all well and good... but he is refering to a country where you can't even play poker online right? Or spreadbet? We still have the "right" to do those things you plonker.

Your title stole my comment
Uber Sensitive Asswipes,
Unpunctual Secondary Allies
Given their love of guns you'd have expected them to turn up in time to actually do a bit of fighting.
On 9/11 the UK stood beside the US and we kept going to the US .
After 7/7 you couldn't find a Merkin at at UK airport or on any street. In fact, the US govt issued a warning about travelling to the UK.
Who are the cowards?
For those who hadn't figured it out, the clue is in the article CAAF = Coward And A Fool.
He may be right in one sense you'd be a fool to go up against a wild bear hand to hand, but it's hardly cowardly :)
So Brits = Heroic Fools
USians = Sensible Cowards
Which is better?!
No, it just means that you have to call the 'Yanks' whenever the s4!t hits the fan. :)
Mines the one with the concealed weapons permit in the breast pocket.
John - Seattle WA, United States of America.
The real question here is why are Brits so easily driven to hysteria and pandemonium at the site of someone in South Dakota (big hunting area) legally carrying a hunting rifle from a shop to his vehicle? When will this national inferiority complex relent???
Brits aren't yellow. The guy must've confused the UK with France.
There ya go. Now the US has offended two countries. Still a bit slower than when Bush was in office. We'll need to ramp this up to have a shot at the record.
Seriously, though, have fun with your non-assault rifles over there in Blighty just as I do with my non-assault rifles over here. Some of us in the US love our British friends. I'm pretty glad my ancestors broke away, but that doesn't mean we can't be civilized to one another in present times.
By the way, Royal Marines and the rest of the MoD are some of the world's finest and bravest fighting forces. Anyone who says any different is a clueless dolt. Oh, and the whole thing all the way back in WWII? Britain was under constant bombardment and didn't surrender. The US did play a big role, but to say the Brits didn't fight that war bravely and honorably is just ignorant.
Long live the US, the UK, and our friendship.
No, no, no, Lester's not into cockfighting, he's surely a member of the Caring Activists Against Fur (CAAF), a NY/NJ based animal rights group who organises anti fur protests in NY and NJ.
