Brits don't want no stinkin' mottos
The Prime Minister of Britain has launched a "statement of values" program, one task of which is to come up with a sort of slogan that encapsulates British identity. This has not really caught fire among British citizens. The Times of London sponsored a motto writing contest. Some of the entries were:
Once Mighty Empire, Slightly Used
We Apologize for the Inconvenience
The readers voted and the winner was:
No Motto Please, We're British.
My own personal favorite was:
At Least We're Not French
Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
