Americans gobsmacked over how many Brits skip 'common ingredient' in cups of tea

(Thanks to John Lobert, who says "I think this is fake news, because as an American, I can tell you for certain we don’t get 'gobsmacked.'”)

This doesn't even rise to the level of "So what", much less "gobsmacked".

inasmuch as I do not put sugar in my tea, my gob remains completely unsmacked

Oh, honey, honey
You are my candy girl
And you got me wanting you



I suppose we could call this "Gobsmack Projection" on the part of The Mirror, which incidentally, WBAGNFARB.

Lipton brewed in the efing gobsmacked microwave for me, mate... chums. Skip the shuuguh old chaps.

I agree with the person who said that milk in tea is like dirty dishwater.

I think the fact that would really surprise the self absorbed Brits is just how little we care about their tea drinking habits.

Cpl. Peter Newkirk: "I'm going to need a few things, you know."
Sgt. Hans Schultz: "What for?"
Cpl. Newkirk: "You don't think I'd let a Frenchman make the tea, do you? He doesn't have a clue."
Sgt. Schultz: "Don't they drink tea in France?"
Cpl. Louis LeBeau: "We don't drink anything we don't stomp on."
