This is outrageous and the British should not even deserve the Olympics. This is why London is one of the most hates place in the world.

They shouldn't bite the hand that feeds them..
and remember they need to clean the toilets after they leave.

Would they think it funny if one of us had a bag that said, "I rented an overpriced flat from married first cousins with really bad teeth?"

Yvette

While I believe it was a jest, it was inappropriate. Wouldn't surprise me if someone printed bags that said, "I rented an overpriced flat from married first cousins with very bad teeth."

If i was handed that bag by a friend and if i was fat i would get very mad.They should recall this bag.

Tom Taylor

And the bag was manufactured in China

Samantha

This is brilliant! Oh England. Making jokes to us Americans! This made me laugh at least.

john Sparrow

Rude, but I think it was meant as a joke, but the truth is the majority of us are obese.

Jay

If I ate the "swill" that passes for food in the UK I would weigh 80 pounds less. I saw a special about the underground ( subway) in London; how come all of the people interviewed in it have missing or rotten teeth?

Bex

What the wtf is a flat?

A majority of these comments are exactly the mentality that makes us so detested around the world. British food is bad? It's just as deep-fried as American food. In fact the one advantage to eating their food is that there's less hormones and high fructose corn syrup (I'm not saying there aren't ANY, but just LESS.) The American diet seems at least 90% factory made.

The bags are offensive to Americans and humourous to the Brits/everyone else around the world. Why? Because we can't take any criticism. Also Americans are notoriously rude, arrogant, self-righteous, and annoying abroad. That's coming from an American who lived in Europe for a number of years.

We may be fat, but at least our teeth aren't rotten. Besides if our food was as bad as it is in the UK we would be a lot thinner.

Bob Kane

Perhaps a good retort would be ...

You're just jealous that American's have all their teeth and can chew or ...

The food in the USA is better than the gruel found over there!

Perhaps you would prefer to loan your flat to someone from the Taliban!

Wow! Nice Olympic spirit. Maybe the next time the Olympics come to America we can have bags designed to say "I'm renting my home to a British family with really bad teeth."

Obviously, "white-trash" has no nationality!

I wonder if this is the same company that the British Gov. gave $444 million for non-existent security guards?

Great combo - no class & no brains.

I'm sure this was meant as a joke, BUT it is really rude. With all the $$$$ that the "fat Americans" will be spending in their backwards country, this is so uncalled for.

Teresa

Really? It makes me pretty mad - but I guess it's just a joke. If I were the family renting the 'FLAT' I'd 'FLAT'TEN it!
(Then say - OOOOPS, just kidding)
