The Typical Briton

The caption on this Yahoo photo was odd enough that I wonder if it may not disappear in the near future, so rather than simply linking to it, I figured I’d grab a quick screenshot and post it also.

A British hooligan in the streets of Belgium. The typical Briton is polite, witty and phlegmatic, but lacks a certain style and has a dental hygiene issue while having an occasional drinking problem.

Slow day, maybe? A caption writer a little too bored on the job? Some humorous filler text that accidentally got approved? There’s no real way of knowing, unfortunately.

Update: Apparently, the caption has something to do with a survey of what other nations think of the Brits.
