It’s easy to make fun of the Brits. I should know, I’m one myself! However, the whole ‘bad teeth’ thing that Americans seem to cling to is a little outdated by now, we got that sorted a while back and quite regularly go to the dentist now. Well most of us, anyway.

So why not have a dig at the fact that we invented a whole host of sports, which we now suck at? Or the brand-new super expensive aircraft carrier we got, which has no aircraft and already sprung a leak? And what about this guy, who represents us to the world as our Foreign Secretary? The list is practically endless. Luckily, most of us have a pretty deprecating sense of humour and are quite happy to chuckle along too, so by all means, give us your best shot.

Now, if you must, you can add general hysteria and losing-of-shit over a little bit of bad weather to the list. Egged-on by a ridiculously sensationalist tabloid press, Brits have been portrayed as a bunch of hopeless ninnies who are incapable of functioning as a society as soon as but a single snowflake falls from the sky. And sadly, it’s all true.

Naturally, people from countries like Canada, Switzerland, Norway and Russia, places where it gets like, actually cold, can only look on with incredulous pity at us whiny Brits, and wonder what the heck all the fuss is about. Those guys get it soo much worse than us, but life seems to go on just fine. What is our problem? Well, you see old chap, we just always seem to get the wrong type of snow. Just unlucky I guess!

Scroll down to see how the world roasted us, and quite rightly so I might add. Oh, and feel free to take a pop at us in the comments too. Bring it!

Meanwhile, Mother Russia relies on snowstorms as a strategic advantage in World War II (a side-note from the history-side of bored panda)

They sent the tough immigrants and criminals away instead of their "best" citizens :|

Technically, the French colonized Canada, and the Brits colonized New England, further south. Then, when the French built warm stoves, the Brits moved in. lol A lot of the immigrants to western Canada came from other winter countries, or from eastern Canada, where they were already acclimatized.

Because there are a small majority of "brits" who are pathetic!! A little bit of snow and that's it!! They panic buy bread and milk (how many sandwiches an cups of tea do you need!!!), close schools because there is a little bit of snow on the path leading up to the school gates!!! it is a joke this country. You can't do anything due to health and safety!! But you do have a lot of people who are pathetic!!!

It’s got nothing to do with history as far back as colonialism, the UK wouldn’t have batted an eyelid at snowy weather as little as 40-50 years ago. Unfortunately as with the rest of the world we have become used to the comfortable life that we have in modern days, the big difference is Cold country’s are used to a lot of snow are have the infrastructure in place to deal with it, in then UK we have a few gritters that don’t really help, we just don’t get the bad weather often enough to make it worth spending the money. So the rest of the world can have a giggle at our expense for a few days, at least when you’re laughing you’re not shouting :oD apart from Mr T of course lol

In other news: Large portions of Canada receive 3 feet of snow less than forecast. Citizens are mildly perturbed.

Whole countries gone mental over the snow we had recently, seriously come on guys what’s the problem? We all know the uk goverment cannot be bothered to managed our little dusting properly. That’s why the farmers are out 24hours getting idiots out of trouble! No wonder we are the laughing stock of the planet! Ffs
