The London Silly Nannies

Now that American Football is back in full swing I thought I should take a moment to reflect of that Great London Football Team-The Silly Nannies. This less than manly team showed up in Season 4 of Family Guy-a show will little love for anything British. Family Guy has been aired on BBC 3 and I wonder how the London audience feels about it. It's a silly show with a lot of American Baby Boomer references-do they have a British version of Family Guy? The guy who played Onslow on Keeping Up Appearances would be a good fit for the part.

A few of my friends are absolutely crazy about Family Guy and can quote entire episodes. It's the kind of love that should only be reserved for shows like Star Trek or Monty Python. Well, it's not that great, but then, it's not all that bad either. Except for the London Silly Nannies.

I'm British. like most British, and this might come as a supprise, I don't live in London. Yet impression you always get from American media, Family Guy included is that nowhere else over here exists. Most of the people I know could I bet, name a ton of American places, accents and recite heaps about US culture yet no evidence of the reverse exists.

Regarding the London Silly Nannies... we play a game in this country which is similar to American Football in several ways, but: NO ARMOUR OR HELMETS ARE WORN ! I was therefore a little annoyed to see us Brits depicted as total wusses, but if we do have crooked teeth (seriously what the fuck?) perhaps now you know why.
