Geez people dont have a cow. He said he doesnt like how people from England spell favorite, he never said he didnt like people from England. Lighten up. Thats pathetic that some of you hate him just because of this post.

It was still a very insensitive thing to say.

First of all, I suggest you check out a British English/American English Dictionary. The huge amounts of differences between the two languages would make your brain freeze up in horror.

Second- like everyone else said, who the hell cares how it's spelled?

Third- I suggest you NOT go to the UK and tell anyone there this nonsense, because from what I've been reading up on the subject for my linguistics class, many English people are very sensitive about their language, the "King's English," and seriously dislike Americans for changing it.

What's next? Slamming how people from the South talk? New Yorkers? Australians?

No - what's "pathetic" is him spitting it over something stupid like how we spell the word "favourite". That is insensitive and stupid, not to mention immature. I don't hate him cos of it - I just think he's a bit stoopid (the letter U in that word has been censored so as to avoid insulting Sitcom Writer with my Britishness!)

And Sitcom Writer - if the only reason you posted that was cos you were bored and wanted something to moan about, I suggest you choose something important to "rant" about next time. Try some constructive critisim - preferably something that doesn't involve the word "EWWWWWWW"!

And one more thing before I go. He is not critising the "English" way of spelling things, people - it's the British way (that's one thing he did get right). We like our 'U''s in Scotland and Wales just as much as the English do, thank you very much!

Fare thee well!
