ब्रिटिश पीपुल हटे मी.

For some reason, my title to this post has slipped into garbled, otherworldy letterings.

Well now. That’s, uh, new(?).

I just want to ask if you know somebody British. If you do, can you ask them why the British people hate me? My amazon salesrank in England is almost nonexistant. I take this to mean that British people hate me.

What did I ever do to England to merit this? Did I accidentally say something bad about the Queen? Did I giggle when someone mentioned the infamous – very nasty -dessert dish known as “Spotted Dick“?

Was it the time I encountered a bunch of Irish Hooligans in the streets of Munich and learned to sing and dance to cheer for Northern Ireland (a.k.a. make friends with the drunk, rowdy hooligans until you can give them the slip…)? Was I supposed to cheer for Manchester? How did you find out about that? British tabloids, you say, managed to catch me in the act – me, a humble writer? Wow, those tabloids of yours are amazingly thorough.

(Found the song I sang after midnight in Munich on YouTube:

)

What is it about the UK that makes them hate me?

If you know a British person, can you ask them for me. I haven’t been near a Brit in ages.

(This post brought to you because my Amazon UK salesrank is over one million…)
