Oh dear, BBC. Oh dear.

  1. I expect this from Fox News, not the BBC. Shame! Shame and dishonor!


    And in 'I haven't been paying as much attention as I should to the WC,' NANI IS OUT, OMFGWTFBBQSAUCE!

  2. Ha, an Algerian flag for us! Wonderful! And I thought they'd do the usual mix up between Slovenia and Slovakia.

  3. Hermitage, well, we could give them a break. I mean, it's not as if the BBC's world cup page will get much traffic or anything, especially not the pages about the groups of teams of little interest to most of its readers.

    Pika, yeah, I bet you get the Slovakia thing a lot! I only have to put up with frequent confusion about England vs. Great Britain vs. the UK!

  4. Its the Australia/ New Zealand thing here - when anyone actually remembers we are separate countries!

  6. What do you mean confusion about England vs. Great Britain vs. the UK? They're all the same thing, no? ;)

    Bob O'H ... keep talking the smack man ... keep talking the smack.

  7. Re: England/UK, etc. something you should never ever ever EVER say is something I once overheard from an Italian student who was trying to chat up some Irish girls:

    "But you are the same as the English: you watch the same TV channels, listen to the same music and watch the same football."

    Don't ever try this in Ireland, if you want to live. ;-)

  8. KK, I used to have trouble remembering which flag was which - until I had a labmate and good friend from New Zealand, who soon put me straight!

    Bob, please respect my "don't jinx it!!!" superstitious beliefs in your future comments ;)

    Thomas, yeah, sure. Just different names for a certain state in the great country of Europe ;)

    Pika, yeah, you only say that once... in Ireland, Scotland, or Wales!

I promise to respond to all respectful non-spam comments! Don't be shy! Oh, and please don't type my surname in your comments; I know you all know what it is, but I'd prefer Google to rank other pages before this blog.
