We've all committed an embarrassing faux pas or two. If you're an American visiting England, you'll want to watch this video to find out how to avoid a faux pas of your own. Join your favo(u)rite English host Laurence Brown as he outlines 7 things not to say in England if you're American.

Sometimes, it's better hearing me in a British accent. Click the red button below.

Laurence Brown is a British man writing his way through the truly bizarre world of America - a place he sometimes accidentally calls home and a place he still hasn't quite figured out after seven years. Thankfully, his journey is made 12% easier by the fact that his accent makes him sound much smarter than he is. For evidence of this, subscribe to his popular Lost in the Pond web series over on YouTube.


  1. The phrase "Heavy Petting" does exist in the US, and means what you think it means, generally up to, but not as far as sex.

  2. I've been trying to decide if British people just have theirs minds deeper in the gutter or if Americans are just that dense. I think there is a bit in truth in both XD

  3. I've been laughing at what I've read and laugh more when you do your videos. Serious question: is it easier in the Midwest to obtain Brit goods (primarily snack foods) lets face it American chocolate could have a wick implanted in it's waxy consistency to use as a candle. There's sites; however, what might cost a £1 is sold for $5 plus p&p. Forget the really good stuff like pork pies, sausage rolls, etc. Gosh, it's time for a fix/trip home to eat the unhealthy snacks you pine for not being readily available here. I promise I will not miss hot dogs and American "chips" etc. I want a salad, with salad cream, a pork pie with a bit of piccalilli and for afters a crumble with custard for afters when I get mid afternoon pangs, I want a 99 and lets say tomorrows Sunday.. I want a full English and later on a full Sunday Dinner heavy on the Oxo gravy with lots of Yorky puds. I actually couldn't eat this much in a day.. but the longing sometimes is like a daydream.
