The English guy at your work is about to become unbearable, it has been revealed. Britain is suddenly good at everything and your smug mate can’t wait to tell you all about it.

According to sources, your English colleague will think it’s hilarious when he asks you whether you watched the cricket last night.

“There’s every chance he’ll email around a link that he’ll claim is work-related, but which will actually turn out to be Ashes highlights, or possibly a satellite image of the weather in Manchester” said one observer. “And at some point he’ll break into Jerusalem. It won’t be heart-stirring,” he added.

Experts say there’s absolutely nothing that you can do about it.

    Australia has yet to unveil it’s secret weapon.The ole underarm trick is a match winner.If that fails we can spread a rumour that the poms are using “supplements”,as drugs are now described.This new tactic is an enhanced form of sledging.

    Cricket was so boring when Australia won every test by 1/2 way through the third day. Least when when we get a wicket now it’s interesting.

    Australia still holds the rubik’s cube record.

    We have to let them win something now and again just to let them maintain their self esteem which is low enough already.
    It’s always raining in Britain even when it’s not it’s overcast,it must be so depressing.
