Judging by your user name, the chicken was quite tasty.
Am I the only one who has no idea what this post is talking about?
sigh You want me to explain it? You have to promise to buy me a full roast dinner incl. Yorkshire pudding if you ever meet me.
If I ever meet you, I'll buy the whole restaurant. What exactly is this about?
BT is a phone company. Chicken tikka masala is a type of Indian curry. BT has some (most) of its call centres in India. SO the joke is that that guy calls up BT for help but ends up talking to an Indian and ordering take-away.
Chicken tikka is chicken in cubes and it's grilled. The masala states that it is a mix. That means, when you make chicken, you add chicken tikka masala to it. Eating masala by itself would be disgusting. That's like eating chili powder.
... ok? Thanks.
Any time ;)
Actually, I DID find that interesting Sorry I had to do the "cool" thing and be sarcastic. I like random facts like that.
Ah, I get it. That's actually what I thought it was but it seemed like that would have been too easy. Next time I go to the U.K. I'll try to find a stud who goes to a university and likes yorkshire pudding. It shouldn't be too hard.
Just go up North. It might be colder but I definitely know at least one stud who lives up there.
northern England FTW. Cheshire represent!
I'm only in the north because I go to uni up here. Home Counties ftw!
I second that. Home counties FTW. Even though most of my family is from the North.
OH! I get it now! Hahaha, that's a funny post...
China demands an explanation.
This comment was the best part of the post.
I suspect that this POTD will have the fewest amount of votes.
Dear Ant/Chromana, not all of us are British. Please keep this in mind when you make the POTD. kthxbai
Not all of us speak English as our first language. Doesn't stop them from making English POTD's.
this website is in english... so i dont see why too many people would be complaining.
Ok, what if someone complained that it's in English and not Spanish? Why should someone have to switch languages on the internet? Point is, he shouldn't be complaining that the POTD relates mainly to British people.
the guy who made the website is english. Pretty much everyone on here is english or speaks english as a main english. they have no right to complain
As they also have no right to complain about the POTD being based out of the UK.
well, yeah, but it's not a different language, which is what you were arguing. I mean i couldnt care less if it's a british POTD or an american POTD, but if it's not funny I will have a problem
I wasn't arguing about languages, I was giving an example!
oooooooooohh, woopsies. Well i just didnt think this post was funny/ didnt deserve POTD
Yeah because there has certainly never been a POTD that's about an American thing before. I mean it's not like there has ever been a time where a non-American said they didn't understand a post and got downvoted to Amirite hell.
Ok, I'll keep it in mind. Do you want us to ban the US people from the site during a "British" POTD so that you don't have to deal with the agony of not fully understanding a post?
Yes, I would greatly appreciate that. I'm in so much agony right now I can't bear it.
well i'm sure there are a ton of american POTD's that british people aren't too fond of.
Congrats on being an obnoxious douche, fag
Je déteste quand vous les haut-parleurs anglais font tout le POTDs dans l'anglais. Je dois utiliser la traduction libre tout le temps : (
ahahahhaah, vous avez gagnez.
With that reasoning, the 9/11 posts and everything that's American should be banned . . .
British Telecom. They run the infrastructure of telephone lines in the UK and also provide services like Internet and TV.
OP, I've edited your post slightly so that the foreigners will get it, hope you don't mind.
and its run by indians?
No, but if you call them it might go to an Indian call centre.
I guess so. But it often results in miscommunication and them not understanding what you're talking about simply because they don't live in your country and don't quite know how things work over here. So it's not great.
People are fucking dumb. The same thing happens in the US a majority of the time. We get some call center in India. Seems like common sense would help you make the connection.
Shut up you fat whore
(OH YEAH USA YEAH): That really got me. I'm hurt.
I wish people would read the comments before posting their own two cents, that way I wouldn't have to read the same 3 posts a hundred times...
:P@502722 (53XYJ355): :P How's the pimms? ;D
Oh it's gone now:(
Drank it all :p
I'm Indian FTW!!!!!!!!!!
Same, and I'm not British yet I totally get it.
Don't generalize that only Brits get it, there are plenty of people that probably do.
I thought "I phoned BT" was going to be a play off of "E.T phoned home." I was wrong :(
In Glasgow :)
For a POTD, this has a surprisingly small number of +1 votes.. only 300+ so far...
It's 'cause it's British, and no one likes them.
Aha. This made me laugh quite a lot! Soo true.
This is why I wish I lived in England.
A lot of American companies outsource things too. I'm assuming you're American.
(...): Yeah, but I'd probably find this post more entertaining if I knew what British Telecom was.
yes. thats what i was thinking
I'm not a Brit, and it made me snort soda out my nose.
I'm neither from the U.S.A nor from the U.K. and i get american POTDs.
This one is just ergh.
I dont find this ironic... Im aussie.
Not everyone on this site ids american, but that doesn't stop all of the american posts
Oh FFS grow up. Next time you get POTD, you can be as American as you bloody well like.
I don't get this... At all.
Then maybe, just maybe, you could scroll up a little, and read a couple of the comments above where the meaning of this post is clearly explained.
i had to read the comments to get it. but it's funny now. haha
The fuck does this mean?
(USA USA): U.S.A! U.S.A!
(Uncle Sam): America, fuck yeah!
(Uncle Sam): USA USA USA USA USA!
(USA USA): I appreciate your patriotism, but try to be more respectful, as Anthony is British.
How exactly is that disrespectful? '_'
The grammar, and the swearing.
OH NOEZ GUIZ. SWURIN ND BAD GRAMMER IZ MODDA FUKING DISRESPEKFUL.
It would have been disrespectful if he/she said: "Ant you fucking British cunt make POTDs that make more sense."
How was that post patriotic? Smells more like douchebaggery to me.
It's comical how you are tagging on me for complimenting one aspect of it, while the anon is butt-Hurt that I told him to be more respectful. Woah I cannot win.
It's "comical" how you think I'm "ragging" on you because I asked a legitimate question about something you said. And no, you cannot win this one, sorry.
Shut up, faggot.
I understand why Americans are perceived as ignorant morons. Thank you for that.
like this if you are from america and don't know what the hell bt is
