Since I'm supposed to be vacationing, here's just a quick snippet I had saved in my Drafts folder for you all awhile ago:
What do Americans really think of their transatlantic cousins?
So I wrote to all these celebrities in the hope of getting them to sign the Union Jack and offer a message of support - things like, 'Hang in there!'
I'm pretty sure the core of this test was to see how many of these Americans would be willing to deface the British flag with a marker after exposure to only the slightest amount of peer pressure.
Can you think of a better explanation?
