Last month we posted on our special relationship with Britain. With the British pound recently topping $2 in exchange for an American dollar, England is maybe entertaining a slow and gradual do-over of 1776: suggesting that a slice of the West Village be renamed Little Britain. Damn the Britons if they didn't do it in a fashion that we didn't find encouraging. The video above is fairly persuasive.

Our only reluctance lies in the fact that "Little Britain" is already one of our most favorite BBC shows. If you haven't seen it, we recommend renting it or viewing excerpts on YouTube.
