It's 200 years since the British burned down the White House, and so naturally the British embassy thought it would be right to commemorate the occasion with a cake, and some sparklers added to it.

The British embassy in Washington has apologised after tweeting a picture of a White House cake surrounded by sparklers, "commemorating" the burning of the building 200 years ago.

 

Apparently some people (see: Americans) didn't see the funny side. Whadda ya think? Is it insensitive or are they just being delicate flowers?

 

Personally I think it's pretty funny and lighthearted.

Cake was funny but those apologies ruined it.

It's nice in a way to see that the friendship between the two nations is advanced enough to try sh*t like this.

 

We couldn't go hand the Germans a Dresden cake for example. Not yet.

I wonder when the US can give Iraq a "Destroyed Nation" cake...

What about a Hiroshima cake to Japan?

I disagree, cake is delicious.

But the British made it, of course it'll taste like sh*t.

We can bake just fine. There's nothing wrong with our desserts. It's when we try to do other things that the problems start.

It won't taste like sh*t... it just won't have any discernible flavor at all.

I'm pretty sure the cake would have been made in the U.S. Doubt we'd ship a cake all the way from the UK. So if there's anything wrong with it, blame yourselves.

We'll blame your ambassador and their staff.

I bet there are British cooks and bakers in the embassy. Besides, it's easier to blame the British for all our problems. Damn it, thanks for Obama.

Over here in Blighty we would describe this sort of thing as 'banter', it's my understand though that this gentle whimsy in the US often results in gunfire.

Depends on the racial makeup of those "bantering" and if the police ever get involved. I.e. don't be black in America.

 

EDIT: I little heavy for a cake post... I apologize.

I sometimes wish we would've just let the south secede.

Your cake sucks, your tea sucks and generally you all suck.

 

Sincerely,

A proud American.

how long do you think it will be before the Germans are sending homemade potato burekas to Israel during Passover?

Me too. Too many milestone threads lately.

 

OT: I found this so funny.

As an American, I'm not offended by this.

Do British girls suck, too...? :D

Not many people seem to know this, but the British/Canadian burning of Washington and the White House was actually a retaliatory attack after a failed American attack on the city of York (modern day Toronto) several years earlier, which served as the capital of Upper Canada (modern day Ontario) at the time.
