PPL! Donut is not the correct spelling over here either, it's DOUGHNUT!
I agree with you, why should the brits become so americanised (don't know if thats a word) but yeah i'm 100% with DOUGHNUTS, but personally i prefer the word movie, not film, its too much in the past that is

They're nuts (nuts and bolts style) and they're made out of dough (not do) - therefore, logic would have it that they are doughnuts. Obviously logical thinking never quite caught on in America.

I will say it one more time it is doughnuts over here not donuts, unfortunately a certain franchise wanted to have abit of an edge in their name and called themselves dunkin donuts. That doesn't mean the proper spelling has changed.

Wow - I really did think it was 'donuts'. What REALLY annoys me is the mystical language which goes by the name of 'English (US)'. ESPECIALLY WHEN IT'S LISTED BEFORE 'English (UK)'! Why is UK even needed!?! It should be English, then English (US) or, better still, English (with letters missing)!

That is deserving of at least a 'lol' (usually I don't lower myself to such brevities).

I don't care if the Americans decide to take a couple of our words, chop it up or re-write it. As long as they recognise that they got their language from us and whenever a question arises about how things are spelt, we are always right.
You can have your former-German language and call it your own all you want. At least we have the fattest people in the world, the strongest country, and ability to destroy you! Which is why we (or you, actually) left your country to start our own. We also beat you in your own war (LOL), whiped out the Indians, created the Internet which you seem to be using as we speak, and I believe we also saved you during WWII

thank you, thank you

You did not 'save us'. It wasn't called a world-war for nothing! Why did you have to steal place names from us (and other places, for that matter)? Couldn't think of any for yourselves? You can keep your wretched land of the free and ignorant. Good point about the Germanic languages, though.

AHHHHH yes well done you invented the internet. BUUUUUTTTTT it was Tim Berners-Lee who inveted the World Wide Web (by the way he's a brit). You see, we get your crappy basic inventions like the internet, and make it great. Also we invented to TV which you yanks seem to love seeming you sit on your arses all day watching them and getting fat.

We have Cambridge and Oxford, churning out Nobel prize-winners left right and centre (not just them, though). A couple of weeks ago I walked past the place where the electron was discovered. You know fine well that the brits are at the forefront of revolutionary technology (as are you). The internet wouldn't have been quite as much of a success if it was confined to the US, would it? More like an intranet, then. When we go to Australia - we take longer flights just to avoid America! (That's not strictly true...).
