    Mo has a right side drive car.

    Does this mean that Jesus and Mo live in the UK?!

  2. John Cowan says:

    Definitely. Note criticising in lack, the use of British dummy rather than American pacifier in dummy, the use of boffing as a euphemism instead of a rather crude vulgarism in added, arsehole in like … the list goes on …

    Finally, barmaids are much more a British institution than an American one.

    They drink real ale from a pub with proper hand-pumps, so UK would be my guess!

    Oh Moses, you and your patriarchal hegemony.

    When do we get to meet Abraham?

    Well, I never knew that “dummy” meant “pacifier” (or even that the British used a different word) until I ran across Dawkins’s quotation here.

    Truly the US and UK are two countries separated by the Atlantic Ocean.

    Me, I’m waiting to see what the big sky-faery looks like.

    Pillar of cloud, burning bush, the kind of thing people used to run into all the time, way back when.

    So here we have all the Abrahamic faiths, under one roof, so to speak. A wreck in the making. Doesn’t look like they are wearing seatbelts.

    RE: “Mo has a right side drive car.”

    Refer to ROAD – 12/13/2006 – Mo was driving the same car then.

  8. With that steering wheel covering his eyes, I guess Mo is driving on blind faith.

    @ Darwin’s Dagger:

    Bwahahahaha! Never thought of that.

  10. Stephen says:

    The UK is not the only place where they drive on the left. Many other countries do too, such as Ireland, Japan, Australia, South Africa, India etc — mostly places formerly colonised by the British.

    What’s happened? They’ve gone all American.

    “They drink real ale from a pub with proper hand-pumps, so UK would be my guess!”

    We have real ale and proper “hand pumps” (beer taps) in the USA; you’ve got to be pretty sheltered if you think that sort of thing is exclusive to the UK. You might want to read some of the writings of the late Michael Jackson (the British beer writer, not the other guy) and what he had to say about beer in the USA: most of the stereotypes Brits have about American beer is grossly misinformed.

  13. Max says:

    Although we do have some pretty shitty beer here…

    But I bet there’s some pretty shitty beer in the UK too.

  14. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Beer taps are NOT hand-pumps. To operate a beer tap one need just flick a switch or open a tap whilst with a hand-pump the clue’s in the name; one needs to manually pump the handle to draw the elixir up from the barrel.
