    You're forgiven on the grounds of being from a county too covered in hills to hold a respectable game.

    It's OK, you're a girl. You don't need to know about the offside rule either.

    Just so long as you know how to make a decent urn of tea and a plate of cucumber sandwiches, that'll be fine.

    Haven't been a girl for ages. Hate tea and cucumber, and know the off side rule as it's a thing I get kids to tell me to learn how to explain things clearly. I don't know why it's important, though.

    And why are you generalizing? Many immigrants had served your "great"nation ,and still doing..I am not british,i don t live in UK..but i would like to say one thing,the mix of cultures you have in your country is a gift,but i think besides the freedom of expression,everyone should respect the culture of the other ..if you want to insult a religion,do it with yourself or with other people,but don t intimidate people by sharing in public,this violence towards thé other,and surely the other will react with violence..I am not justifying Smth,but i think Charlie and the guys who killed him both are totally wrong,and the guys are even wronger.By the way,when you ask for immigrants to leave your country,ask first your politicians to stop interferring in the arab world's issues and leave us,they destroyed Palestine,Egypt,Syria..and the list is long.

    I would guess that her grasp of English wasn't really up to the job of identifying sarcasm. That last post was not exactly what I'd call well written.

    I suspect you're right, although it's still pretty good. The most I can do in another language is some German, and that's terrible.

    It's very obviously sarcasm, as is the "blaming immigrants" comment above. It's a form of humour.
