the British are coming!

George Bernard Shaw may have said it or maybe didn't, but the witticism remains bright and sharp: "England and America are two countries separated by a common language."

But where once the Brits were the ones to complain about American terminology that was creeping in and fouling their mother tongue, now it's the Americans turn to whine (whinge) and whimper.

How positively faux and frivolous and snooty!
