No I was making a bad joke since wankers is a british swear


They're making a joke because you put their instead of they're.

I've actually dealt with people like this before. I knew this one girl who faked a British accent and pretended her mom was british. She also used to wear a doctor who cosplay to school. *cringe*


I had an online friend do that with an irish accent because David Tennant.

If wankers are wankers, are their wankers- wankers, too?

I've never heard of this phenomenon -- but I have recently woken my mum up from a dead sleep yelling for her to get to the TARDIS and pretending to scan her bed with a screwdriver, so I might see where these people are coming from.

Well, that's a new one. I could see it being a bit annoying if I knew someone like that, but fortunately I don't. I only know real English people.

Yessss! I love this word! And while I understand this may not be such a big issue in the US, I have DEFINITELY encountered a fair share of Teaboos! Wow, thanks for giving me that label to stick on them. Ha!

When living in a country where English is not the native language, people will have to make up their mind about whether they may want to adopt an accent. Those Whovians, Sherlockians and Harry Potter fangirls are definitely the one who try to produce this over-the-top British accent which is simply hilarious but also a little cringeworthy at times. I usually notice this in girls who are a couple of years younger than me, so I always think of it as endearing teenage awkwardness.

Well maybe this is not what you meant by Teaboos. But I love this term and I am going to use it forever in my mind. Thank you.
