So, the British government is banning Kelly Clarkson for taking a ring, that was previously owned by Jane Austen, out of the country.
Clarkson paid for $250,000 for the ring in an antique auction last year.
The British Minister for Culture has argued that the item is an important part of Britain’s cultural history and should remain in the nation.
Because Britain has always been so supportive of the rights for people to claim items that are significant to their cultural history.

The Four Kinds Of Englishmen
My friend and I have decided to divide the English gents into four easy to reference groups:
The Mr Darcy - The Englishman that we know from movies and television. Smooth voice, charming, mysterious and probably doesn’t exist in real life, and even if he does, chances of you meeting him are pretty much nil. Thinking about renaming this ‘Hiddles’.
The Backpacker - This is the most common Englishman you’ll meet. Easy going, wicked sense of humour, can put their foot in it every now and then, but you love them without pause. Can be found anywhere there’s good food.
The Empire Builder - The not-so-nice Englishman, who still acts as though the sun hasn’t set on the Empire. Can be rude and a pain in the arse. Will use the term ‘colony’ and forget about the indigenous population. Luckily, these are not great in number.
The Convicts-That-Ate-Each-Other - Some of the English convicts that were sent to Australia did revert to cannibalism a bit too quickly. This type of Englishman is even more rare than The Mr Darcy, but he’s out there, and scary as hell.
I hope this helps, amuses and pisses you off.
You know how you keep seeing all those posts with a bald eagle vs a bulldog? And the Americans keep hatin’ on the Brits and vice versa? You sometimes see Canada get in on the act, but you’ll almost never see Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, China, Chile, France, Spain, Jamaica, Fiji, India, Norway ect trying to prove themselves.
Coz we’re too busy being awesome.
And laughing at you.
I think we all know who wins here.
people can talk shit about America all they want but at the end of the day we have Ellen DeGeneres.
I see your Ellen Degeneres
and I raise you Stephen Fry
I see your Stephen Fry and raise you one Misha Collins
I SEE YOUR MISHA COLLINS
AND RAISE YOU ONE KEANU REEVES
I SEE YOUR KEANU REEVES. AND RAISE YOU MORGAN FREEMAN.
Whatever … I see all your talk show hosts and movies stars and raise you
Continue with your fighting, dearies.
