23 stupid questions about British people, answered
Britain is a nation of idiosyncrasies.
We have our ways, our habits, our little things that make us unique - the things that make us British. But as with all idiosyncrasies, to the outside world we can look a little odd sometimes.
To help the outside world understand us better, we scraped through Twitter to see what kind of questions the world is asking about Britain and tried to answer them. Unfortunately, some of the questions were downright stupid. Nevertheless, we gave it a shot.

Why do British people hate birds so much
— Asher (@13WhiteShadow13) September 19, 2016
There was a time when our people were great friends with the Birds.
Our children played together in the street. Little British children and little Bird children, playing football and shitting on car windshields. But those little Bird children grew up to be big Bird men.
Big Bird men with big Bird ideas. Ideas about how things were and the way things should be. We listened, patiently. We let pigeons into our towns and cities. We welcomed budgies into our homes. We set up the RSPB.
Then one of them took a crap on Lord Nelson, and that's when things started to change.
