Default A public Service announcement for Americans.

Do not wear Burberry on your visit to Britain. It is not, as may think, an expensive fasion brand. It is worn exclusively by chavs, pikeys, mingers and tarts. If you wear it, British people will snigger as you pass by. Also, they will stone you.

Please see below examples showing why Burberry is as unacceptable in Britain as popped collars in your homeland.

This Public service announcement was brought to you by the British fashion police.

I know a tart is a "woman of a loose persuasion" (My wife made me watch Bridget Jones). What do the rest mean?

I'm not from the northeast, either. Why do NYCers hate on the Jersey guys? As a corrolary, do people from the Bronx hate people from Manhattan who hate people from Brooklyn etc? Enlighten me.

I'm not from NYC although I did live with someone from Jersey for awhile.

Most of the stereotypes of people from jersey are generally true. I don't know, I guess most people would say that it's like rednecks of New England?

I thought a tart was a derogatory term for homosexuals?

It's hard to know where to start. I'll see if I can help.

A minger is basically the same as a munter or a swamp donkey. A proper ten-pinter, if you get my drift.

A chav is usually a minger, but they'd prefer to shag Wayne Rooney, so don't worry about it. In the north of england they're called charvers. Imagine an english version of a ned, like they have in Scotland and you're prety much there.

A pikey is just a no-mark. You know, like you get on Council estates. It's also related to being a gypsy, but the not the ones in caravans, the ones that burn mattresses.

Tarts all have a heart of gold. If they don't then they're just slags. Men can be slags too though, but only in the accussative For example "Don't screw me arround, You Slag!"

I hope that cleared it up for you.
