Talk about today's strip, or anything about the comic in general. You can also talk about any of the characters... but don't expect a response. They're FICTIONAL, you guys... sheesh. :)

Well, I'm not sure you can use CRS's "Plates" to mean the distance.

It's usually used as in "Take the weight off of your plates". I've never heard it used to measure distance before.

February was some lyrics or quotes month or something. I don't even remember what year all this was.

The other half is violence.

What did you get, Greg? Did you get a Garmin Nuvi 360 on my advice? :D

Ah, Cockney Rhyming Slang! Without knowing what the "fifteen plates" is for (for those of you who may not know), it's basically asking you to turn right somewhere or you're in trouble.

Isle of Wight = right

Plates => Plates of meat => Feet
Fifteen feet, eh? Though that's a somewhat late warning for a turn.

I've seen "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" and "Snatch" more times than I can count in the past couple weeks (got on a cockney movie kick). So I had a cows calf on this one.

My Friend my sister and I borrowed my Dad's GPS for a trip last summer. We reset it to british english, we decided it sounded Friendlier than the default american. We also changed the color setting.

We also didn't bother to set it back to his settings when we gave it back. 0=D

No we got a TomTom and it was before we saw that you had gotten a GPS as well. So now none of us will get lost in NC! :lol:

We talked with the guy at the store for awhile, and he said that the TomTom was the best for the price. He said that the Garmin had better menus, but that was about it. Plus our TomTom has a subscription service where it'll find out if there is traffic or accidents ahead and re-route you. We thought that was worth everything in the world.

Tho I'm sure its more feet as in what you put your shoes on, rather than the length.

Anyway loved this comic, good to see English English getting back.

As in, "If it would not be to much bother, you might like to take the third exit on the roundabout" or "Whoops a daisy, you missed your exit, you may have to turn a round at your next convenience"

Mostly, the british voices are less "angry" sounding than the US ones. Softer, somehow.
