  • How large is the Portugese invasion force? Just 2?

    Hmm. Which makes me wonder, is this the first Portugese invasion attempt on the UK? Historically has the UK ever actually been at war with Portugal?

    Anyway, prepare to meet our fearsome definsive arsenal:

    • People speaking English (not loudly and not slowly)
    • Imperial units of measurement
    • Driving on the left
    • Coins with seven sides
    • Mains sockets with rectangular pins
    • Cricket
    • You should be preparing for our ofensive :-)
      • People speaking Portuguese
      • Metric system
      • Driving on the right
      • Euros
      • Sweet rice
      • Sueca

      O:-P

      • Metric system

        That's OK. We have it too. Does Portuguese spell metre as "metre" or "meter"?

        Driving on the right

        I can cope with that. As long as it's consistent.

        Euros

        I have some of these. I haven't met any Portuguese coins yet. They're OK, except that I find the 1 and 2 euro coins confusingly similar in size. Apart from (some?) BT payphones and the Pillars of Hercules [openguides.org] I'm not sure where you could spend them here.

        So 50% of your offense neutralised. :-)

          Metro! :-) (note that we don't read it the way you do)

          except that I find the 1 and 2 euro coins confusingly similar in size

          Ah-ah!! Now I know your weakness!! >:-D

          I'm not sure where you could spend them here

          Oh, no... we're not spending them... we're *throwing* them at you English people!! :-D

          Ok, so I guess I'll have to take something else with me :-)
