    HowTo not look a bit foreign

    Since looking a bit foreign is becoming an extreme sport in London's tube, here are a few instructions for not looking a bit foreign in Great Britain:
    • Don't use funny hats or smoke on a pipe. No Briton does that any more.
    • Wear a Real Madrid shirt
    • Don't talk about any of the following subjects: weather, football, cricket, horse races
    • Try to have your face look positively red, as if you had spent your holidays drinking, on the Spanish beaches, or both
    • Phrases to avoid: 'Oh my goodness', 'Good save the Queen', 'Britannia rules'. Double negative points if they are on a T-shirt
    • Grow a beer-belly
    • And, last, but not least, for crying out loud, never wear color-coordinated clothes. Only continentals do that
