UK culture in USA schools – talent show time!
Harry’s school is holding a ‘cultural talent show’ whereby the children are encouraged to ‘demonstrate a talent reflective of your culture’ and ‘take to the fashion show ramp while modeling your cultural outfit’.
I’m really tempted to dress him as George Crawley from Downton Abbey and have him sipping tea as his talent, saying ‘Where are those damn servants? I need a refill!’ whilst pointing at the teapot, just to indulge the American penchant for Downton Abbey.…
Other suggestions on this from Facebook have been:
Kevin the Teenager….
Vyvyan Basterd from The Young Ones
I’m sure Harry will choose something far more conservative, but I can but dream about making an amusing final British statement at school…. so, maybe this…? #justwrong!
My virgin babyshower – a USA phenomenon
